I just spent last week with Jean-Luc and Murielle in Shanghais to launch Bad Boy and visit our clients. I had a great time. They are a powerful couple: with a mix of tenderness, humor, energy and professionalism. A real driver for the next few months.

Between various press meetings, we went to a tasting at Shanghai’s Park Hyatt with Jean-Marc Nolant (Sommelier from the Park Hyatt), Vincent Landais (sommelier from French Touch International), Jean-Luc, Murielle and I.

The Park Hyatt is beautiful, 495 meters high (1624 ft). A mix of luxury with pure lines, plain, modern and the use of noble materials with a beautiful view of Shanghai.
It is currently the highest restaurant in the world with one of the best wine lists in China. No Chateau Valandraud at this time but this will change soon.

My favorites these past few days:
The unavoidable : Château de Valandraud 1999
My special Selection : A nos amours blanc , 2005, 100% muscadelle
