Curiously we had our first contact with Jacques and Marianne Delaunay some 25 years ago in 1987. This was at the short-lived Restaurant Alexandre in Epeigné-les-Bois. Jacques supplied Alexandre with wine – we once drank a magnum of 1985 at the restaurant – and we met Jacques and Marianne one evening when the service was particularly slow. Unfortunately Alexandre had a habit of failing to pay his bills. The restaurant came to an end when Alexandre opened fire on his boyfriend or it may have been the other way round.
A touch of George Clooney or his elder brother?
