Photos from Bourgueil's invasion of central Tours in March 2010. I have only just got round to sorting these out, so I'm not sure I have got all the names right and would much appreciate any corrections or details if I have got names wrong – many thanks!

Pour le domaine du Petit Bondieu, c'est Thomas Pichet qui sert. Et celui que tu as "oublié", c'est Xavier Courant, du Domaine de l'Oubliée !
