NEW YORK, June 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bordeaux Wine Council, le Conseil Interprofessionnel du Vin de Bordeaux, has announced the Today's Bordeaux 2014 selection. The annual program, now in its ninth year, features well-priced Bordeaux wines available in the U.S. White, red, rose, and sweet wines from 25 Bordeaux AOC's are represented in this year's selection.
"Today's Bordeaux serves as the ultimate guide for both wine connoisseurs and occasional wine drinkers who wish to explore the various appellations and diverse terroir that make Bordeaux so uniquely special," says Bernard Farges, President of the CIVB. "This diversity also extends to the winemakers themselves as a new generation is now producing and innovating in the Bordeaux vineyards. This new generation includes both female and millennial winemakers who are bringing fresh, exciting ideas to how wine is being produced in Bordeaux. This year's selection is a reflection of these young innovators."
Bordeaux wine producers and their U.S. importers were invited to submit their wines for the selection earlier this year. All the wines in Today's Bordeaux are sold in one or more of the following 19 states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Washington D.C., and Washington State.
Six accomplished wine experts were chosen to taste through the submitted wines and made the final selection for Today's Bordeaux 2014. The judges included Elin McCoy, Wine Columnist for Bloomberg, Christy Canterbury, Master of Wine, May Matta-Aliah, Founder of In The Grape, Patrick Cappiello, Bordeaux Wine Council Ambassador and Wine Director of Pearl & Ash, as well as two Bordeaux "Wine Buffs."
The selection will be launched at press events in New York on June 24th 2014 and in San Francisco on July 24th 2014. To view the full selection please visit: http://www.bordeaux.com/us/wines/selection.
