Crémant production rises in Bordeaux

The 2015 harvest in Bordeaux included a substantial rise in the amount of wine destined for crémant production and a fall in that for rosé. Production figures from the ‘Syndicat Viticole des AOC Bordeaux et Bordeaux Supérieur’ showed a 2% increase in volume over 2014 to 2.9 million hectolitres. According to Vitisphere, the union’s president, Hervé Grandeau, was quick to point out that, “it is a great vintage in terms of quality and in fact normal in quantity. There is no lack of wine but no is there a glut.”
