FÊTE DE LA FLEUR 2013
I was there two yeas ago for the Fete and it was such a fabulous evening! I sat at a fabulous table with some of my favorite producers ... interestingly I had stayed at their various Chateaux during En Primeur!
Everyone who was 'anyone' in Bordeaux was there, including St. Julian Producers Philippe Blanc…
Perrier Jouët's Fleur de Champagne 1998. A pure delight, a mature Champagne at its peak. As light, delicate and fresh as on its release it is now showing a depth and complexity not obvious when young, along with appealing, subtle biscuity flavors.
It is also the perfect occasion to meet old clients, friends, collegues, the organisers and especially to do a tasting with the HEC Wine Club. The 13th December I'm off to thein , an event with the Wine Business Club and my talented friend and collegue Jean-Marie Guffens. I'm not going to be bored...
…special treat for you, the loyal and loving. We don't need to explain how they work, do we? We'll just say they were handmade, one layer at a time, and let you figure it out yourself.
Oh, before we go, it's worth mentioning these peanut butter cups have a dash of Fleur de Sel. That's right. Salted peanut butter cups.

This blend is a "special plot selection" with 60+ year old vines. The wine is partially fermented in oak barrels for 12 months, with traditional lees stirring.
…other kind?]. The medical device manufacturer from the midwest with his own personal wine locker at Fleur de Lys. There was the über-rich real estate magnate from Southern California, the Texas collector who became a born again Christian, the Tennesseans and the university professor whose hobby was putting on the greatest vertical tastings in the history of the universe.
All of them owned more wine than they, or any 100 of us, could drink in a lifetime. Even then, their pathology …

So chewy and crunchy! Make some noise and don't be shy with your dollars, gentlemen! This is one 's gift no one would mind having, am I right?

…Family Vineyard Fleur de Veeder Merlot? Good wine, but we don't call wines " Fleur" in California. Copain Les Voisins Pinot Noir? Please explain what you mean. Brander Au Naturel Sauvignon Blanc? Why not just say "unoaked" and respect the language? Arrowood Reserve Speciale Chardonnay? Memo to company: We don't spell "special" with an "e", and in the English language, adjectives precede nouns. Joseph Swan Cuvée de Trois…
