I don´t know what this has to do with my posting abovePeter Chiu wrote:
If Pomerol did have a classification, it would not be the same as an AOC in Burgundy.
From what I understand, the laws there allow the owner of the Chateaux to label any juice from his newly acquired ( but must be adjacent ) vineyards under the name of his own Chateaux.
For example, if Chateaux Petrus bought up all the vineyards next to his plot - which he now owns - he is allowed to include the all juice from the new acquired vineyards as if they are from Chateaux Petrus.
So....what kind of a *classification* would that be ?
I maybe wrong ....but
>the laws there allow the owner of the Chateaux to label any juice from his newly acquired ( but must be adjacent ) ...
no, nothing has to be adjacent (not even in the Medoc), it usually has to be in the same class (or get permission).
In Pomerol a new vineyard has only to be of AOC Pomerol ...
Mark is totally right ...
