English tasting and "Chateau to rent"

The 1855 classification, « left bank », revised and price corrected by the British. The results: on top, Graves (red) forgotten in 1855 like Pape Clément or Mission Haut Brion.

Still across the Channel, Château Lascombes 2004 reached the top spot and was well received by the Executive Wine Seminar in front of other big names. However, a few wines, who could have also faired well in this sort of competition, were missing . Angélus, 2nd and 4th Ducru Beaucaillou. These results will please a few!

I received the 1st estimation for the cost of a eco friendly swimming pool for our chateau to rent in Château Valandraud (Saint Etienne de Lisse): it is twice the cost of a “classical” swimming pool. Tough to be a eco friendly hippy!
In the meantime, a few pictures of Chateau Valandraud – to rent as a guest house:
