The spirit of Bordeaux wines
Each Bordeaux wine has its own personality, intimately related to the special touch of the master winemaker or estate owner. Blending permits the specific elements from each variety to mix and bind together to create new elements. In the case of aromas, hundreds of active molecules in the wine interact during the blending process to create a new wine with a complexity, delicacy, and richness that surpass by far the simple addition of the characteristics of each of the assembled wines. It is easy to understand why the decision to plant a certain type of vine is of utmost importance since it has a direct impact on the quality and personality of the final product. This also influences food and wine combinations, and the selecting, buying and storing of wine.
