About www.greatbordeauxwines.com

 

This website is an upgrade of old one, created in 2003. In 2015, due to a change in maintaining program for my website by web provider and my desire to change old look of my website to a current and proffesional one, I decide to hire a proffesional webdesigner (www.pellep.dk), to give my website major overhaul with new layout, simple structure,  user-friendly interface, easy navigation and search function + RSS. This "new" website kickstarted on May the 4th, 2015.

There are drop-down menus related to menu bar contents. This website is responsive, which means it adjusts itself, whenever you see it on tablets (f.i. Ipad) and on cell phones. It supports Android, Apple IOS and Windows Phone.

The choice of contents in menu bar like Harvests 2016-2009, Vintages 2015-2000 and Chateau Profiles is 100% personal. I'm confident that addition of my impressions while visiting Bordeaux during harvest, will help reader(s) to better understand tasting notes from barrel during primeur week and what a given vintage has to offer.

Various Tasting Notes chapter contains all other tasting notes, which don't relate to Chateau Profiles.

In Chateau Profiles there is a page called with description of the most important districts/communes in Bordeaux with facts, style of wines, pairing with food and places to eat. It can be accessed by clicking on every one district/commune listed in drop-down menu of Chateau Profiles.

If I don't have more than 5 bottled vintages of a given chateau to write TNs about, than this chateau isn't included in Chateau Profiles. I try hard to expand this chapter.

In News I mention regularly every update on this website. However, I've created Latest news (right column) to pass the latest news immediately to the reader.

In Contact you can write to me by email with praise or critisism, and come up with suggestion(s). I'll try to answer all inquires.

I sincerely hope my website will catch your attention, dear reader/visitor!
