Going to Bordeaux for a week May May 29, Thinking about undertaking a short trip to Carcassonne for a day or two It is possible to take a TGV high speed train. Depending on the date of travel, the journey could take between 3 – 4 hours. Sometimes, one or two train changes are necessary – again depending on the date of travel. There is no bus. Train is the only way. There are some trains, but for most options you will need to change trains in Toulouse. Reservation is compulsory for TGV trains and you may have missed the really cheap fares as you are going in just a couple of weeks.

You can’t tell me that Bordeaux doesn’t have the commerce system, the resources, professionalism, capacity and connections to handle two systems of distribution and sales that cohabitate. Seems fair to me, no? I don’t see why there is this resistance. Besides, you the journalist said drink the wine in seven years, or 10 years. So we’re releasing it at the right time as far as the press is concerned. As for the wine, Engerer noted that even though the wines are not being offered immediately through en primeur , the winemaking and blending process remains the same and the s being shown are virtually the final blends that will eventually be bottled.

The original classification was drawn up by the Bordeaux Brokers Union for use as part of the regional display at the Paris Universal Exhibition. Based wholly on price, and including only the major estates of the Left Bank, it still defines the way we think about and refer to Bordeaux wines. In Liv-ex recreated the classification by ranking major Left Bank wines by their price.
Since then we have updated the classification every two years to reflect the market, publishing new classifications in , and In previous years, Liv-ex has extended the classification to include wines from the Right Bank which were not originally classified. This final table includes wines from Spain to Australia and will appear on Liv-ex Insights towards the end of next week. To warrant a classification, at least five vintages of a wine must have traded in the period.
The average Liv-ex trade price is expressed for a 12x75cl unit in GBP and is volume weighted. Price bands have been adjusted accordingly. Mission Haut Brion is clinging on to its place among the First Growths. The other First Growths comfortably maintained their positions. Palmer continues to lead the Liv-ex second wines, while flying fifths Lynch Bages and Pontet Canet also hold their spots in the category.
Leoville Barton, previously a third growth, has risen to the second tier.

New high-speed rail transport infrastructures produce profound time-space changes that make new activities possible. Our aim is to measure the impact of such changes on potential business or leisure travel between cities. The indicator is developed in the context of the high-speed rail line between Tours and Bordeaux. The results demonstrate the possibility of contact from a series of key cities affected by new high-speed rail infrastructure, both before and after project completion.
High-speed rail projects offer new links that compete with existing fast and efficient transport systems, especially air transport, complicating the global transport supply balance Armstrong,
Recent comments by wine consultant Stephan Derenoncourt have inflamed a quiet but growing criticism of the way Bordeaux conducts its.
Sangiovese vines of Brunello di Montalcino in Tuscany. Photo: by Giovanni. When invited to attend the industry tasting event for the unveiling of the Brunello di Montalcino vintage, and write about my experience, many thoughts raced through my mind. Upon googling the event title, and trying to learn everything I could about the event style to prepare myself, I found surprisingly little information on the web. I soon learned there was a good reason for that, as these vintage unveilings are trade tastings reserved only for those in the wine industry whose job warrants an invitation.
So, what are these industry tastings all about? And for people outside the industry, what do they mean for you as a consumer? These guidelines include where the grapes may come from, what type of grapes may be used, and specific aging requirements. We were also provided with helpful booklets listing all the participating producers and the wines they were showcasing. I quickly learned that one of the trickiest aspects of participating in this tasting was vying for the spittoons.
While spittoons were placed at each producers table, I sometimes found the bucket was just on the other side of a large, chatty Italian-man I needed to politely maneuver around to delicately spit my wine out. However, with so many wines to try in only 5 hours , I sometimes skipped the Rossos and went straight for the good stuff. You heard that right, the tasting lasts for 5 hours!
Mercifully, the venue had some Italian cheeses, crackers, and bread to cleanse the palate.

With a en primeur campaign that may represent a slight improvement on last year, but is hardly flying , the UK trade was similarly reticent about commenting on whether the timing of the primeurs tastings, just six months after harvest, allows buyers and critics to form a reliable opinion on the vintage. Two years ago, when the market was far more buoyant, Jancis Robinson MW put forward the case for fellow critics to hold back their scores until after prices had been confirmed, as happens for Burgundy, whose primeurs tasting take place well over a year after harvest.
We are not able to compare like with like. In addition, she highlighted the damaging effect such lack of consistency and transparency is likely to add to the more openly criticised pricing strategy of many estates.

Wine needs at least five professional ratings to get the Tb score. The vintage in Bordeaux was one of the most challenging since and It rained almost continuously during spring. Flowering was uneven resulting in poor set, millerandage and coulure. The threat of mildew was mollified by the arrival of hot dry weather during summer.
For a while vignerons were hopeful that plentiful sunshine and benign weather would allow the vines to catch up. Violent storms, wind and intermittent heavy rainfall in July and August hampered vine growth and created difficulties with fruiting. High humidity and cool temperatures prior to harvest led to a slowdown in ripening and the perfect environment for botrytis grey rot infection. Merlot did not perform well on the left bank. Chateau Margaux certainly was vulnerable to these conditions, but others, in their efforts to talk up the vintage, have shown superb Gallic denial.
You would be forgiven for believing this might be an exceptional vintage; such is the brilliance of the best professional liars in the world. In years gone by, the weather conditions, uneven ripening and disease pressure would have resulted in disastrous wines. Chateau Margaux avoided the worst rains by bringing in a picking team of people to harvest the crop at lightning speed. Chateau Lafite also raced against the elements and won.

This paper seeks to examine the various actors responsible for the recent tragedy at a clothing factory in Bangladesh. Rather than focusing on the actual factory owner, it evaluates the broader structural and institutional factors, plus a particular Western retailer strategy of fast fashion, that together explain the practical inevitability of such tragedies. As a case study of a particular incident, it presents data from newspaper accounts and descriptive statistics to evaluate the broader context of an industrial accident.
By examining the full context of the incident, it becomes apparent that there were systemic issues that effectively encouraged many parties to engage in workplace policies that almost inevitably can lead to accidents or at least labor abuses. The paper takes a much broader examination and analysis of institutional factors that shape work conditions than studies that focus merely on labor-management issues. Taplin, I.
