The December issue of Revue du Vin de France is full of articles to read, including a report on the architects of wine in Bordeaux, and a re-tasting of the 2001 vintage of classified growths and well known wines, including this comment: 2001, more than a rehabilitation.
I believe that several years ago, the Grand Jury Européen issued a statement and a similar classification and some of my friends bought many bottles of Angelus, Clos L’Eglise, Pape Clement, Rouget, Troplong Mondot, Bon Pasteur, Pontet Canet, etc... And I was able to check extensively their fine quality in their homes during meals.

The purpose in reading the results of the Grand Jury Européen, as well as journalists in general is, for example, to discover the qualities of a remarkable wine like Rouget, yet so understated, brought to our attention by one or more famous critic, this wine being cheaper than the icons which still end-up in good positions in these confrontations?
Meanwhile this weekend, we will taste some of my wines at the Carrousel du Louvre... including Fleur Cardinale, Pressac, Rol Valentin, Faugères and Carles.

A few articles I recently read on the web :
The Chinese market seen by The Wine Cellar Insider
Our projects in India , article published by the Indian Wine Academy
The next Valandraud tasting in Germany (in German).
Christian-Louis Col’s article (in French) on The House of Roosevelt in Shanghai

Also included in this week’s program: the new Saint Emilion classification.
A information meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, December 8 in the Dominican Hall starting at 9:30 am. There will most likely be a lot of people…
Warning, this hall is not named after the Jesuits Hall. There will be some atmosphere and it goes without saying that this new 2012 classification will raise questions, even anxieties.

Well, to prove my point:
