Oak chips in Bordeaux wine?

>> Sunday, May 22, 2005

Oak chips in Bordeaux wine is not permitted today. The new boss of CIVB (the Bordeaux producers’ association) has proposed that it should be allowed in the future (but not for all wines). But we are far from there yet. He also wants the local growers’ associations (like his own CIVB for example) to have more power to decide about rules and legislation. Today the control is mainly in the hands of the INAO.
