Dégustation Primeurs...

This years futures tasting organised by the Union des Grands Crus à Bordeaux from the 31st March to the 3rd April should bring in the crowds yet again; journalists, importers etc., even though we are going through a difficult economic period with 2013 vintage already put down by many people.
But still many people should come, and not only for the dinners, the visits, the tastings and good food but to buy these 2013 wines and to look more closely at the 2011 and 2012 which are still available.
In my house and our historical winery that is Valandraud, in Rue Vergnaud in Saint-Emilion, we have organised our own futures tastings since 1998 when I was one of the first to do so though I was not a member of the UGC. A few friends, colleagues and stars such as Pingus came to join us with our amaterish organisational skills but we are friendly and we smile!
