NEWS FROM ROB DEFORD

Boordy Meets Bordeaux -the language of wine

In late spring my wife Julie and I made a pilgrimage to Bordeaux, wine’s most hallowed ground. Grapes have been cultivated there since Roman times, appellations are the enological equivalent of holy shrines, and top chateaux are the provenance of the world’s most sought-after wines.

It is also the region with which we in the mid-Atlantic have the most in common: a four-season maritime climate, year-round precipitation, and vintages which bear the imprint of variable weather.  Our wines are a stylistic testament to this kinship: they display a similar freshness, elegance and complexity, and are full on the palate without being excessively brawny or alcoholic.

We were chaperoned by our winemaking consultant, Steve Blais, who for the past 20 years has worked for one of Bordeaux’s top enological laboratories.  Steve arranged five technical visits to chateaux that involved tours of their vineyards, barrel cellars, and processing facilities followed by a tasting of current and past vintages.  It was evident that winemakers in one of the world’s oldest regions are as dedicated to innovation and experimentation as those of us making wine in one of the newest.  Like us, they are committed to sustainable agriculture, gentle handling of the fruit, minimal intervention in winemaking, a restrained use of oak aging, and small lot fermentations based upon clonal or vineyard variation.  Our common goal is to nurture the expression of place (“terroir”). In a world of increasing commoditization, this unique signature is a wine’s most precious asset.

The over-arching lesson is that the quest for quality is unending and universal.  We felt a bond with these passionate winemakers for whom growing and making wine is not simply a profession but is life itself.  And, fortunately, it turned out that my neglected high school French was not an obstacle because we shared a common language: the language of wine.
