A quick trip up to Paris Montparnasse by TGV from Libourne in order to meet Dominique Dhyser and Mario Dussurget at the Ecluse Carnot restaurant/wine bar.

I was invited to talk about their company, about my company, about previous work we had done together and about future ventures.

Good wines and good food during business meetings always tend to make the discussions more agreable and help to build up a good business relationship and more importantly trust. This is often how business is done in China…

Well, the Ecluse winebars should be sponsored by the CIVB. We always hear that Bordeaux wines aren’t available on Parisien tables and these establishments only offer Bordeaux wines with a selection of wine by the glass with easy pricing ; the price of the bottle divided by 7.5 for the 10cl glass.

Of course the wines served were ones that we knew well : Virginie de Valandraud blanc, La Dominique 2007. On the wine list are also Château  Fleur Cardinale, Domaine des Sabines, Bellevue de Tayac, Bel Air Ouÿ, and Compassant…

Thank you from us.
