Valandraud Blanc 2011: 19/20

Thank you Weinwisser, thank you René Gabriel for your recommendation given to Valandraud Blanc 2011, an encouragement to continue and Murielle, mentioned by René Gabriel, and I, can be happy of the stylistic choices made since the 1st vintage in 2003, already.

Thursday evening at L’Essentiel, we tasted our 2011 with Rami and his friends "traders" and "bankers", and our guest stars Michel Puzio (Croix de Labrie) and Michel Gracia (Gracia), my “garagist” friends who were also part of this path of history and built 2 beautiful brands in 15/20 years. The success they had with their 2011 futures campaign, the notes and comments they received which were rewarded with sales are proof.

The Ruinart Blanc de Blanc was good, as always, but this beautiful day was marred by news of one of my employees being in a car accident: the car coming from the front was driving on the left, the young driver was probably using his cell phone.

One can understand why the use of these damn cell phones is strictly forbidden while driving.
