Why Big Red Diary?



A couple of interesting news stories on the wires this morning:

1. Drouhin ex-cellar sale
2. Chanson’s Clos des Mouches obliterated – it was the same for Domaine du Pavillon (Bichot), though Drouhin and a couple of others were able to find enough in-tact grapes to make some wine.

Re the appended pic – I really can’t understand why they didn’t contact me first, the organising committee of the St.Vincent would then have known to choose another day – I have my annual ski-race that day, so will have to miss it. Still, it’s not often that you get a bit of Hollywood in St.Aubin! 🙂

    “Obviously” now I see what you meant about Hollywood lol 🙂 .

    Never thought I’d see the likes of that in St A -any idea who’s idea the ‘signage’ was Bill ?

    ‘Tis an ambition of mine to attend a St Vincent – one day maybe.

    Dear MG, I hope Bill not mind me mentioning that after my next Corton trip I will blog some photos from the St Aubin St Vincent as Bill has more important things to do 🙂 (http://jonatcorton.com).
    You should definitely make a point of going, but only on the Saturday I think, that’s when the fun is to be had !

    Hi Jon,

    Bonne annee et meilleurs voeux !

    Am sure (somehow !) Bill won’t mind 🙂 . Would be great to see your photos, thanks.

    Maybe another year – perhaps the three of us ? Are the 2015 & 2016 venues known yet ? Am still regretful at missing the vendange time Montrachet breakfast as guess you might be but some of us have to work eh 😉 ?

      Hi Marko,
      yes shooting harvest was difficult to miss, I’m only getting one crack at all this, so long days and no diversions. There will always be another time and maybe we can relax and enjoy it more on another occasion.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
