Mouton unveils Catalan artist label for 2012 vintage

Chateau Mouton Rothschild has revealed its 2012 vintage label created by Miquel Barcelo, the final artist commissioned by the late Baroness Philippine de Rothschild.

The label depicts two rams on their hind legs, matching each other’s strength, against a hazy watercolour background of greens and blues.

Mouton Rothschild has commissioned an artist to design its grand vin label for every vintage since 1945, and the 2012 label was the final creation personally commissioned by Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, who died in August this year.

Inspiration for its Bordeaux 2012 vintage label came from the two rams featured on the chateau’s own emblem, said Barcelo.

Born in Majorca in 1957, Miquel Barcelo has risen to prominence in the past two decades. His work was exhibited at the Paris Museum of Modern Art in 1996 and the city’s Louvre museum displayed his watercolours in 2004.

In 2008, he created and painted a dome roof worth an estimated €18m at the United Nations' Palace of Nations in Geneva.

Previous artists commissioned by Mouton Rothschild include Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali and Andy Warhol. French artist Guy de Rougemont designed the 2011 vintage label, released last year.

Treasury Wine Estates to close historic Australian winery

Penfolds and Rosemount wines producer Treasury Wine Estates is to close the 130-year-old Ryecroft winery in McLaren Vale in order to cut costs.

Wine has been made at Ryecroft since the 1880s, but current owner Treasury said today (10 November) that it can no longer afford to run the winery. It will not produce wine from the 2015 harvest.

Treasury is seeking to reshape its business following a series of disappointing financial results, which culminated in a net loss of A$100.9m in its last fiscal year.

Ryecroft’s 33 employees were informed of the impending closure this morning, and the firm said it would try to relocate as many as possible within its business. It has nine other wineries and three bottling plants across Australia, according to its 2014 annual report.

‘Rosemount remains a valued brand within Treasury’s wine portfolio and will continue to be made at other South Australian wineries in the company’s network,’ said Taylor. Treasury still owns 900 hectares of vines in the Fleurieu Peninsula that includes McLaren Vale, south of Adelaide.

Champagne growers brick up government building

More than a thousand Champagne grape growers this week joined with farmers for street protests against excessive tax that led to activists bricking up the entrance to a local government headquarters.

Farmers' unions across France had called for a day of protest on Wednsday (5 November) against excessive taxes and regulation in the agriculture sector.

French news agency Agence France Presse estimated that 1,500 grape growers took part in protests centred on Chalons-en-Champagne, with hundreds more farmers joining them — many on tractors.

Around 3,000 farmers and wine growers were expected at the protest, with 500 tractors, local agriculture union FDSEA said just before the march.

It published a schedule for the protest that allocated a three-hour slot between 2pm and 5pm for activists to brick-up the entrance to the prefecture building in Chalons, which houses the area’s government.

Images released by radio station France Bleu, which was at the scene, showed that protesters stuck to the plan. They hauled breeze blocks into town and duly built a makeshift wall in front of the door, even as union leaders prepared to meet the head of the local authority for talks.

The Anti-alcohol laws will be toughen in Russia

It seems hopes of easing the harsh rules of regulation of the alcohol market in our country that suddenly appeared after the spring meeting of the Russian government in Abrau Durso, not destined to come true. So far everything is exactly the opposite.

Two bills relating to tighten the rules of sale alcoholic drinks deputies can see at the beginning of the autumn session.

The first bill includes a ban on the sale and consumption of alcohol in all buildings of the government, the same federal and local, the newspaper «Komsomolskaya Pravda». Thus, from the cafes and buffets located in office buildings and service oriented deputies and officials, will disappear even beer.

According to the second draft is expected to ban the sale of alcohol in cafes, bars and restaurants located in apartment buildings. However, the system of regulation of such a ban is at the discretion of local authorities.

According to experts, this initiative will benefit first of all chain restaurants and cafe large retail chains.

Russia set to invest $1bln in Crimean wine

The Russian government is considering investing up to RUB30bn (US$1bn) to develop winemaking in the recently annexed Crimean Peninsula over the next several years.

The funding is set to be approved at a forthcoming meeting of the Russian government under the leadership of Russia’s Prime Minister, Dmitry Medvedev, who has praised the quality of Crimean wine.

According to Medvedev, Crimea’s total vineyard area reaches 31,000 hectares and the region has perfect conditions for the development of winemaking.

At present, due to closure of the Ukrainian market to Crimean wine, the Russian government has ordered leading national retail chains to provide spaces for it on their shelves.

Stefano Campedelli: «I have a little allergy to wine guides»

Stefano Campedelli, winemaker and the owner of Azienda Agricola Marion, held a presentation their farms and introduced lovers of noble drinks his products in academy of sommeliers Mozart Wine House.

Stefano Campedelli: «I have a little allergy to wine guides»

The small producers are doing higher quality wines than the producers of multimillion parties. Ones are positioning themselves as producers of perfect Amarone often. In fact little family farms are the real defenders of this wine. But ultimately the quality product makes small producers.

MWH: I want to talk with you about the production of wine. A large number of producers come to us at the Academy and many of them use principles of biodynamic in their production. Do you think that biodynamic is a fashion trend or the realities of the modern world? Are you using biodynamic?

SC:Here, in my opinion, the quality of wine must stand at the head. It must take the first priority.

Even a great biodynamic master Josko Gravner believes that important thing is the quality of products. No matter it is biodynamic or not. I use the minimum number of chemistry.

I do not think that production of wine by biodynamic process is so necessary.

We live in a polluted world and we need to understand its realities.

There are two groups of people. The first believe in the biodynamic, the second use it as a marketing ploy. I do not use biodynamic.

MWH: And the last, the traditional question. Please give some advice to students of our academy sommeliers who are just starting out in the world of winemaking

SC: You must to taste, to taste, to taste. I’m not a sommelier. I studied all on my experiences. But I can say that the theoretical knowledge that students receive in the classroom is very important. And in the future you need to taste, to compare wines from different regions, and so on. It’s like a person who is going to run a marathon; he must to train every day to win.

I want to mention your tasting class. I travel a lot and rarely have met so professionally equipped classes. So, your students are very lucky (smiles).

MWH: Stefano, thank you for a fascinating tale and tasting. We are pleased to welcome you in our academy of sommelier Mozart Wine House in the future!

Rudy Kurniawan has served his sentence

A penniless and isolated Rudy Kurniawan has already faced 27 months in custody and should not face further time behind bars, lawyers for the convicted wine fraudster have argued.

pre-sentencing report submitted by Kurniawan’s defence team, Jerry Mooney and Vincent Verdiramo, says that their client is too poor to pay anything but a nominal fine of $12,500.

The US government has already seized millions of dollars of Kurniawan’s assets, it says.

It also argues for a prison sentence of 27 months and points out that Kurniawan has spent 27 months in custody since his arrest, meaning he could be seen to have served the appropriate time in prison already.

Indonesian-born Kurniawan, who last December was found guilty by a jury of making and selling more than $1m of counterfeit fine wines that he had concocted in the kitchen of his Los Angeles home, is due to be sentenced in New York on 29 May.

He could face up to 40 years in prison for his crimes, which also include fraudulently attempting to secure a $3m loan.

TWE forced to deny Pernod approach

Penfolds producer Treasury Wine Estates (TWE) has denied any approach for parts of its business from Pernod Ricard, after speculation of a possible deal saw its share price spike.

Treasury Wine’s share price rose by 15% on the Australian stock exchange after the head of Pernod Ricard’s wine arm, Jean-Christophe Coutures, said Treasury’s US wine assets were attractive.

Pernod Ricard is seeking to build scale in the US and last month agreed to acquire Kenwood Vineyards in Sonoma Valley, California.

Treasury, which has been considered a potential acquisition target since splitting from Foster’s Group in 2011, has faced repeated calls from some analysts to exit the US wine market following several years of weak return on investment there.

Coutures was quoted as saying Pernod would take a look at Treasury’s US assets, if they become available, but the firm is not actively seeking deals.

Such different glasses

The shape and the size of wine glasses affect the amount of wine that we pour. This was established by researchers from the University of Iowa (Iowa State University, USA). In the study, the researchers asked participants to pour into glasses of different shapes and sizes as much wine as they consider the norm.

As a result, it was found that wide glass is poured onto 12% more wine than in standard glasses. The color of wine is also influenced by the flow rate. The survey found that white wine is poured into a glass a 9% increase over the red wine. A decisive role played by higher contrast of red wine glass with clear glass. The researchers also found that a lot depends on where the glass has been when pouring the wine. In the glass, which is held in the hands, they poured into 12% more wine than a glass that is on the table.

According to plans of the Russian Alcohol Regulation system, by 2016 Russia should reduce by half the number of places where spirits are sold. The officials are betting on «weak» drinks, first of all, the wine. And rather soon Russia must get its strong wine industry.
