Facts and information

About www.greatbordeauxwines.com

This website is an upgrade of the old one, created in 2003. In 2015, I decided to hire a professional web designer (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 navigation 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 chateaux in Chateau Profiles is 100% personal.

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

In Chateau Profiles there is a page with a 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 the 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'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 criticism, 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!
