Congratulations to the Gaudrelle team!

Had it been a Mr. Strauss-Kahn dinner instead, they would rather have chosen the Château Gaudriole’s “ammanite phalloïde” cuvée, I suppose ! And the winemaker could have been ... Claude Tapin, with due respect and apologies for the similarity to Dom. Pierre Bise’s most appreciated and talented boss !

thanks for the mention! It was a great event, however the event was in Portland Maine, not our young upstart cousin on the west coast.

Apologies Ned. Duly amended. Jim

Alexandre is the best....He is the most open mind of Vouvray... I hope the fund raising comite paid for the wine... We should propose him to do the same with Sarkozy....

Aynard ... but I thought Sarko drank orange juice?
