Foire Aux Vins (wine promotions)

The Revue de Vins de France special issue for the “Foire aux Vins” (Wine promotion), tasted again 2006 and 2007 top Bordeaux.
They included :
La Dominique 2006 et 2007
La Commanderie de Mazeyres 2006
Prieurs de la Commanderie 2007

Also listed was a 2006 Dentelles cuvee from our Calvet-Thunevin vineyard (was it necessary). The comment and note is intended for amateurs looking for powerful wine and optimum ripeness: “warning, amateurs who like southern wine with a northern taste, stay clear”.

If this could bring some kind of consolation, Hervé Bizeul’s wines are treated with the same spirit, even if he got better notes.
…When I think that I teamed up with Jean-Roger and Marie Calvet to make wine which reflect the area, and not make Bordeaux, was I wrong?
