Murielle and I drank with our meal a bottle we received as a gift: Croix de Labrie 2007, simply delicious. What is Michel doing to make such sexy and charming wines, what’s his secret for making such a silky wine in this “average” vintage?

The campaign will end with the two stars of this vintage, Vieux Certan and Ausone with which Eglise Clinet and Pontet Canet, already sold out, prove that despite the gloomy atmosphere there is still great demands on certain wines which have been successfully produced, Domaine de l’A, Beauséjour Duffau, Calon Ségur, Domaine de Chevalier rouge, Clerc Milon, Croix Figeac, Léoville Barton, Pavie Macquin , Rouget and for us Virginie de Valandraud red and Valandraud Blanc. Despite this short campaign, I still can offer Peter Sisseck’s wines.

Peter Sisseck told me that Chateau Rocheyron 2011 will only be released in December, and that he plans to release Pingus, Flor de Pingus 2011 and 2011 PSI in the market that day, the 2011 futures will end for us this week. 

We will undoubtedly look forward to keep on selling futures in September when we will have a better idea of the 2012 vintage which will certainly have an impact on 2011 depending on the quality.
