Jim, together with my best friend, Dr Michel Ingels, I used to “manage” a small-scale wine club which imported some French wine to Belgium, in the early nineties, “Les Amis du Vin” (how original). Domaine Cady, in Valette, was a regular provider of lovely Chaume bottles, “Ouche” or something like that. But the gentleman (a Philippe ?) in charge was roughly my age (approaching sixty now, I suppose) and elegantly bearded. Is he Alexandre’s father?
If that is the case, give them my regards.

Luc. Philippe is indeed his father. Will try to remember when I will doubtless see them during the Salond des Vins de Loire.
