Grand Jury Européen

40 wines from the 2005 vintage were selected for the grand tasting organized by the Grand Jury Européen and I am happy to see that the following wines were included:
Fleur Cardinale
Haut Carles
Virginie de Valandraud
They will then be able to pit against 1st growths and similar wines in November’s tasting at the Villa D’Este in Italy.

For the Grand Jury Européen, François Mauss organizes these tastings blind and the results are often greatly debated, especially when they don’t correspond to the opinion of “others”.
I can’t wait for the results.
In any case, this 2005 vintage is of great quality, even for wines with lower notes. Only high prices cool down the demand.
