Dude, making me a nice offer to join a us importer at the Salon in Angers. If you attend, we will certainly need to clink a few glasses of Pineau or whatever.

'If you attend'!! Having attended every one of the Salons since 1990 and with the hotel room booked almost 'in perpetuity' I certainly hope to be there. Will be good to meet up.

.... and plan to be there. Will go to the Renaissance des AOC tasting on the Sunday morning at the Greniers de St Jean in Angers and then to the Salon on Monday.
