We received at the office lots of chocolates for the holidays, sent by our business partners. Our attorney, Joëlle Bordy, sent us little pockets of personalized m&ms with her initials JB. Our world is becoming so impersonal that it is the attention to details that creates a more human space.
Mr. Robert Parker who was supposed to come in January to taste again and give a final note on 2005 Bordeaux cancelled due to surgery (back pain). Of course, I wish him good and prompt recovery. I hope he will be a good shape in March to taste our 2007 as well as 2006 and 2005.
To bad for him to have to wait to taste 2005, but interesting situation as all the other critics will have time to write and rate Bordeaux before him… The Wine Spectator and Jancis Robinson already started, and why not the Grand Jury Européen?
