Christian just came back from a week of work in New York with some of our distributors. It started with Royal’s annual tasting event at the Museum of Jewish Heritage where 3 vintages of Valandraud kosher were presented (01, 02, 03). Valandraud was the hit of the event!
Wednesday 28, tasting event at Pasanella & Son, beautiful wine store downtown by the South Street Seaport. Presidial, Baby del Rey, Clos Badon, Virginie and Hugo were served and les 3 Petits Cochons graciously provided pates. Surprise visit by Jody Foster who enjoyed the Clos Badon and Hugo. What a shame I wasn’t there… she is one of my favorite actress.
Friday, private dinner organized by Amanti Vino in Montclair NJ for 26 collectors in a beautiful villa. Blanc de Valandraud No 2, Clos Badon, Franc Maillet cuvee Jean-Baptiste, Virginie and Valandraud 2000 and to finish, Quintessence de la Coume del Mas and our new high-end project in the Roussillon : Les 3 Maries. Silence during the tasting of Valandraud 2000… says it all. Franc Maillet JB and les 3 Maries were the surprise of the evening. 4 cases of 3 Maries bought following the event.
New York will never stop astonishing me. What energy!
