Alan Duran from the Periodic Review of Wine came Wednesday to taste 2009 Valandraud, Clos du Beau Père Blanc N°1 “Murielle” de Valandraud and Franc Maillet Cuvée Jean Baptiste.
This discreet American critic understands the importance of the Asian market. In fact, our wholesalers, wines and even critics should now take in account the new Chinese “order”.
Just before, I talked to Philippe Maurange (Revue du Vin de France) about the importance for RFV to be available in Asia. Parker and Decanter are already largely used by our customers and distributors.
So, why not have other source of information? Why not have more of a “French Touch”?
In the meantime, we expect to see a lot of critics in the coming week, and following the power of the English language, Chinese will soon be the main language used to promote our wines.
Mr. Lada understood that a long time ago.
