Successful 2009 : we’re still missing the sell of Croix de Gay and Fleur de Gay (Fleur de Gay was one of the wines which inspired us for Valandraud) and it’s normal : these wines are highly rated and very good. Their prices have been accepted by our clients for they were sold at the beginning of this 2009 futures campaign for less than 2000 and 2005.
Croix de Gay is a UGC wine and Faizeau, belongs to Chantal Lebreton, co-owner of Croix de Gay, is also one of the successes of this vintage with its incredible value for money, even it is still (too much?) unknown.
We drank at dinner a sample of Valandraud 2009, it is even better than in March, the late harvest on land later explain that.
Sonia’s chronicles :
Read the text (sorry, in French) of her visit at Valandraud, posted on Wednesday, October 28, 2009, it’s fresh, quick, full of humor and mentions Carlos in L’Essentiel and Murielle for the visit.
