The 2014 Bordeaux Barrels Diary: Patience Pays at Lafite Rothschild

Director Charles Chevalier waited for ripeness at Domaines Barons de Rothschild properties Lafite, L'Evangile and Rieussec

Posted: March 26, 2015  By James Molesworth

Next up in my 2014 Bordeaux barrel tasting tour of the first-growths is Château Lafite Rothschild. Director Charles Chevalier noted that the oddity of August's cool temperatures meant his vineyard team had extra work to do, both in terms of viticulture, to ensure ripening, and then extra diligence at harvest for sorting.

Posted: March 25, 2015  By James Molesworth

It's been a tumultuous stretch lately at Château Mouton-Rothschild, with a new cellar completed recently, and the passing of the legendary Baroness Philippine. Yet if anything could power forward through rough, it would be the S.S. Mouton-Rothschild, and director Philippe Dhalluin is admirably steering the ship.

The Great Exchange

A strong dollar in the 1980s turned Bordeaux first-growths into steals for U.S. wine drinkers

Posted: February 20, 2015  By James Laube

There was a time when currency exchange rates created a bonanza for American wine drinkers. My first real exposure to the benefits of a strong dollar occurred in the mid-1980s, when the dollar bought the equivalent of 10 French francs. The fanciest of French wines became bargains for American wine drinkers.
