indian bordeaux?

September 7, 2009

I was told recently that India in the grip of economic success for a portion (about 400 Million are or will shortly be middle class) of its population, is embracing wine at a feverish pace. India is now making wine in some of its cooler, high altitude areas. The quality so far has been far from ideal and is expected from a newborn wine region. To advance quality, some in the Indian wine industry have not only taken to importing France’s wine-making talent, but also its soil. Will wine made from grapes grown in India on soil imported from France taste like Bordeaux? Borgogne? Interesting tasting notes to be sure.
