My “week of Bordeaux” started quietly with a turn with the Pey-Labrie Mill. I did not want too to survey as of 8h30 the spans of the park of Expos… One Sunday morning, you imagine???
Bucolic tastings seemed to me much more sympathetic nerves. Fronsac direction and on the spot, I found a Champagne fellow-member with the dynamic vintages. I met also Isaure de Savennières, which second Evelyne (OIVienne P13). I knew already the field, but not rising generation.
On the barrel of Marcel Richaud, I found of the “Oiviens” P18-19. (I will try to make a post to explain you which is these Oiviens; -))
I finished with Jean-Michel Stephan de Côte Roast and Elian Da Ros of the Coasts of Marmandais. The last time that one had seen oneself, it was for one evening Brugean memorable at the time of the exit of “Terug naar of Wijngaard”!!!
Of 10h with 17h, intersected with a dresser, tastings were followed. But like known as Pierre: “what is well in this type of living room, it is that even while drinking much one does not have a headache; -)”
It was the hour however to turn over on Bordeaux and to find our friends bloggeurs. It was a priori the good moment to return (considering the world which left the living room to foot and by car). Obviously, one parked oneself contrary to Hall 3 and of the stand of Despagne, therefore after having crossed the totality of the carpark, one has resquiller to enter to 18h30 (closing time).
We found the troop of bloggeurs quietly sat at table around some glasses, alarming little of the traffic external or the closing of the lights of the living room. It is limiting the bouncer of Vinexpo which left us.
Thank you at the Despagne house for its reception intra-expo, in Mathieu to have kept a place to us on the quays and especially under the tent and to have answered present at David, the DB, Régis which bottled the following day, in Laurent and Champagne Aurélien, Francis, and Raphaël & Co.
