Primeur Campaign

Release of Troplong Mondot 2006, Chapelle D’Ausone 2006 and Haut Carles 2006, a nice choice of some of the best wines of the right bank, while waiting for the « stars ».

Last night, Murielle, Alain and I were invited for dinner by Corinne and Hubert de Boüard to meet Jeffrey Leve who owns a media (radio?) in Los Angeles and who is a real food and wine enthusiast. For this occasion, we drank: Champaign: Egly-Ouriet 1998, delicious and Sélosse with “ woody-oxidized” flavors which Hubert and Corinne like. Following, Batard Montrachet 1997 from Ramonet, then Angélus 1990, ripe and at its peak (17 years old: what a beautiful age!), Angélus 1955 which we greatly enjoyed, especially Murielle who was glad to see the high quality of this vintage. And Angélus 2001 with aromas of violet, ink, vanilla flavored blackberries, complex and very righ.
We had a very good meal with a nice family atmosphere as Coralie and Loïc also attended.
Today, we are having lunch with a friend winemaker and negociant. What do we have to do to stay thin in this job?
