New Appellation for Bordeaux?  Add/Read Comments

As reported in Decanter the five existing Bordeaux Côtes appellations are gunning for a simpler AOC system; one that the consumer will find easier to understand. The Côtes de Bourg, Côtes de Blaye, Côtes de Castillon, Côtes de Franc and Premiere Côtes de Bordeaux will be called Côtes de Bordeaux, but will still be allowed to add their speicific origin to the label so we would see Castillon: Côtes de Bordeaux.
"Four of the five regions have agreed to the plan. Only Côtes de Bourg is resisting, where a spokesman told the local paper, 'There's no guarantee that the new AOC will be successful, and we want to keep the choice over our identity. If it works, then we will be happy to join.'
