You may/may not have noticed I have been away from the community for the past few days, I have been away on a staff training trip to Bordeaux. I have not been to Bordeaux before but the city itself is certainly worth a visit along with the various châteaux.
I am going to be posting up a few bits of the trip away and I am also going to be embarking on a slightly larger/more technical research piece looking at soil types and cross referencing this with vineyard plots to try and find my ideal Bordeaux wine.
I found it amazing when down next to the vines how different the soil types were even with plots only a few metres away. The vineyard plots in Bordeaux are very fragmented, however when looking at how they are split it makes perfect sense.
Anyway, I will be posting up a few photos and videos on this thread from the trip, I will then look to embark on the much larger research piece that I will share with everyone on here.
