A big article on Bordeaux was published in the June 14 2008 issue of the Figaro Magazine. La Dominique received a nice note and I especially noticed 2 pages (140 and 141) written on us (Murielle and I) tasting Bad Boy 2005 in the real garage of a friend (and not in mine, of course) who lent it to us for the photo. This Libourne garage had an Alpine Renault and a Citroën SM. The journalist wrote a nice article (with a few mistakes, especially on garagists including the ones who don’t like to be called as such).
I was given the title of famous consultant (in the microcosm of the wine world) and mischievous agitator (which suits me well!): I was an employee of the Credit Agricole bank (in Dordogne), and currently customer of the Crédit Lyonnais. I had the privilege of having 2 parcels declassified in table wine (“L’Interdit” de Valandraud and Clos Badon), well.
Were also just released the special issues of Bordeaux Primeurs from Gault et Millau and Vinifera.
We spent the weekend near Paris to listen to our friends sing, drink and eat well: Yquem 1999, Pavie 1998, Pichon Baron 1989, Haut Carles 2003 etc…
Other than that, the En Primeurs campaign will certainly end this week. Phew!
