In Japan, chocolate and Maury 2004 is the most beautiful gift and the best food pairing possible.
More good news regarding Japan: Présidial Thunevin 2005 was selected in the best 100 small price Bordeaux. It will be part of a large PR campaign organized by the CIVB (this contest takes place in many countries).
Villa Mongiron 2005 was also selected for China!
I found this astonishing blog: lebisrepetita, reserved to adults. In any case, a bottle of Valandraud 1995 was drank (it does happen!).
For your info, we purchased 636 new barrels for our 2007 vintage which costs more than 40 000 Euros.
