On Jancis Robinson website, Julia Harding MW published her notes and comments on April 13 on Bordeaux whites: Virginie de Valandraud Blanc received 16.5 and a nice comment, and Valandraud Blanc received 17 which confirms our ambition to be one of the top Bordeaux white.
For subscribers to Jean Marc Quarin’s site, Report No. 4 published on April 15, 2012 on 150 2011 Saint Emilion. Clos Romanile, Remi and Sonia Dalmasso’s wine was given a Special Selection and my wines and those of my friends received nice comments.

Jacques Berthomeau wrote a column on his site titled "Without hesitation, in the second round, I vote for Clos Badon from Saint Emilion, as it provides the veal its pedigree. “ Should we understand in his election column a reference to the General de Gaulle comparing the French to calves? My father, who was a follower of de Gaulle and a cattle farmer in Dordogne would have understood this comment... God rest his soul!
I love his photos and videos, especially the one of the harmonic motion which says it all, like the Sean Connery’s photo in 1964 in the film Goldfinger – which must have been used because on my name Thunevin, which could be loosely translated into English by “Goldwine” , where does Jacques find all these connections... In any case, it makes you want to drink some and celebrate your birthday every month.
