1855 (1855.com): Jim's Loire offers new service (cont) – Mouton–Rothschild

A distant glimpse of Mouton-Rothschild

En primeurs ordered from 1855 and known to be outstanding:

One bottle of 2004

Two bottles of 2005

12 bottles of 2006

A sphinx guarding entrance to Mouton

I asked one of the sphinxes that guard the entrance to Mouton-Rothschild if they knew when 1855 would be delivered the above wines. True to form there was no reply but I thought I detected a brief sardonic smile flicker across the creature's stone features ...  

Emeric Sauty de Chalon and Fabien Hyon are the senior 'management' team of 1855 (1855.com, 1855.con). Thierry Maincent was an administrateur and one of the directeur général délégués until he resigned his posts for personal reasons on 30th September 2010. Businessman Jean-Pierre Meyers, who is on the boards of L'Oreal and Nestlé, is a long-term shareholder of 1855.

Mr. Meyers has deep pockets (he married the heir to the L'Oréal owner).
And being the son of a rabbi, he surely has a direct connection to Yehova, or at least to the Rothschilds

Anon. I'm amazed he has any association with this fraudulent shower.
