for the position of being the world's largest wine producer. French wines accounted for 17.6% of world exports in 2005. French wine traces its history to the 6th century BC, with many of France's regions dating their wine-making history to Roman times. The wines produced today range from expensive high-end wines sold internationally, to more modest wines usually only seen within France. Two concepts central to higher end French wines are the notion of " terroir ", which links the style of the wines to the specific locations where the grapes are grown and the wine is made, and the Appellation d'Origine ...

Bordeaux: China and Choices | wine-life.co.uk
This post comes as a response to a recent Twitter post by US wine taster and critic James Suckling. While he and I obviously differ on musical grounds (he likes Pat Metheny; I would rather listen to the dying cries of a netted dolphin) this is not an attack on Suckling per se , it is rather a critique of that statement so often rolled out in response to people complaining about Bordeaux prices, namely that ‘you don’t have to buy it’. Suckling’s words were thus: ‘If some wines are too expensive don’t buy them. No big deal!’ This is, again and again, the choice that wine lovers are ... market research, surveys and trends
Appellation: Know where your wine comes from - Minneapolis / St ...
In this third part of a series about important wine terms and concepts, we'll talk about appellation, which tells you what region of the world your wine comes from. (You can read here about the first two terms, terroir and vintage .) Appellations are geographic areas that have been mapped out to identify the boundaries of a certain wine region, but in many countries they are more complex than just geographic areas. Here's are the basics you need to know when buying wine, along with five recommendations of great wines, available at local stores, that illustrate particular famous appellations. Every country that produces ... market research, surveys and trends

Let's rock, again | Rockpool Restaurant
Is it a Sydney restaurant? A Melbourne restaurant, lost? Or a Sydney clone of a Melbourne restaurant, conceived in Sydney in the first place?  The answer, of course, is all three. Rockpool Bar & Grill, Sydney , is the spin-off that just became the main game.  The monster threatening to eclipse the justifiably famous little place in The Rocks that gave Australia’s most recognisable chef, Neil Perry, his first bouncy springboard. Ignoring myriad side-projects, it goes something like this. In the beginning was Rockpool .  And Rockpool was good.  It was Modern Australian, and it indulged Perry’s talent for a broad range ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

New world order: Queensland wines set to rule
There was a time when a trip through Australia's premier wine country read like a road map of Northern Europe. From Burgundy and Bordeaux to the banks of the Rhine, the classic grapes that made these regions famous were reflected in the cellars of our own big name wineries. But as the market grows and consumer tastes diversify, a new Australian wine map is emerging, one complete with influences from Spain, Italy, Greece and lesser known parts of France. And with a climate not dissimilar to these warmer parts of the continent, Queensland is well positioned to take advantage of rising demand for fresh new names such as ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Larchmont's Priciest Wine Bottle: Can You Afford It?
Where is that most expensive vintage hiding? It may go against the grain for many these days, looking for the most expensive wine in town during these recessionary times when 'value' is the codeword. But there is an argument to be made for finding value at a high price. Wine connoisseurs, collectors and retailers would not put a price on an exquisite bottle of fine wine; it's like comparing costume jewelry to a real diamond, or for cooks substituting margarine for butter. But that was our plan, and it conjured up some interesting facts and surprises along the way. Wine shops offer the most variety; it is ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

NY Vitis vinifera variety studies - where Pinot noir is grown
We associate Pinot Noir with a single region, Burgundy, but in fact it is grown extensively in many places in the world, and it is made into wines with styles ranging from classic, generous Grand Cru Burgundies through much lighter regional Burgundy wines to the fruity red wines of Switzerland, Alsace, Germany and Italy. Insufficient color is often a problem with Pinot Noir, but even where color is lacking it is valued for the production of white sparkling wines as in Champagne. The fact that Pinot Noir wines can be produced with a range of styles offers reassurance to those who are experimenting with the variety. Regardless of ...

What is a 90 point wine? i dont really know anything about wines ...
Wine Spectator isn't the only organization that rates wines in this way, but Finance Guy's answer is good. 90 points is an excellent rating. If you see a 90 point wine for under $15, you are getting a good deal. * * * * On Lisa's answer, below: Agreed, to a certain extent wine preference is a matter of personal taste. In fact, top quality wines often tasty funny until you develop a taste for them. However, the ratings do tend to be fairly consistent with the expert tasters, say, within about five points. One taster may rate a wine at 90 points, another may give it an 85. Naturally, your local ...
Main difference between Bordeaux and Burgundy wines? - Yahoo! Answers
Bordeaux and Burgundy are first and foremost regions, and French law dictates what grapes can be grown in the various regions (this is based on the fact that the French have had many centuries of trial and error to see what grows best in each area). For the most part, the grape make-up of French wines is related to the consumer through the regional name on the label, as opposed to New World wines (USA, Australia, Chile, for example), which have moved to using varietal (the grape) names on the labels. Bordeaux uses cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, petit verdot, malbec and merlot for red blends, and sauvignon blanc and ...
