Max Bordeaux

Max Bordeaux – Enomatic Wine Tasting

I’ve been going to wine bars for a sip or two after dinner lately and I noticed that there were several wine bars in Bordeaux that serve wine by glass through an enomatic wine dispenser apart from Max Bordeaux, which is a wine gallery near Grand Théâtre, not a bar, that offers wine tasting events. So I got the impression that it was in trend right now in Bordeaux, and then I came across wine caves with the same machines on my Burgundy tour and got to think about the technology in a different perspective. I hear that people love it or hate it, and I’m sure that there must be a controversy over the effect of argon gas on the taste of wine.

Review – Portes Ouvertes en Médoc – Part 2

My journey into the secrets and myths of Bordeaux wine has led me to many things about wine, technical as well as political. I started to feel a bit puzzled, after the visit to St-Emilion last week and the encounters with sommeliers, about the business side of wine industry and the pure love and passion for wine. The more I discover about the politics and dirty deals going on in the wine industry, the less enthusiastic I become about studying. I’ve never been keen on St-Emilion from the beginning simply because it wasn’t complex or savoury for my taste. The wine tasting in St-Emilion last week and an agglomerated cork in  Château Cardinal-Villemaurine Grand Cru Classé, 2009 St.Emilion assured me to steer clear of St-Emilion.
