Jean Marc Quarin selected Valandraud Blanc 2009 in his favorite. This made us happy, especially Murielle, who's been handling this project with determination and ambition since the beginning, with the help of our consultants and employees.
After Andreas Larsson, the Frenchman Gerard Basset, who works in England and represented the United Kingdom, was elected best sommelier in the world 2010 competition.
It's a first for Valandraud in Saint Etienne de Lisse and it went well: lots of people attended, amateurs, of course, visitors as well as neighbors and colleague owners or wholesalers. In the end, it was work for 4 with little down time and even some sales. The white was especially successful. We will do it again next year, but this time in Saint Emilion, in the “garage”?
