Raise a glass, tip your bottle, manoeuvre a magnum – there’s been a lot of celebrating wine in the last week or two!! And what’s not to like about that? The capital hosted London Wine Week this month – a seven day ‘summer festival of wine’ with tastings, tutorials and special menus at pop-ups, wine bars and restaurants around the city during the 13 – 19thMay.
There is no doubt we all want to experience and know more about and wine. This Bank Holiday weekend we were all encouraged to celebrate National Wine Day on the 25thMay, in moderation of course!
We certainly celebrated wine in style this May with a fantastic visit to St Emilion with our clients and owners of Chateau Pavie wines. We enjoyed a magnificent lunch hosted by Philippe Develay, CEO of Vignobles Perse, at the Hostellerie de Plaisance and then a tour of the Pavie vineyard and Chateau, followed by a tasting of the 2017, 2018 and 2012 vintages. We were thrilled to taste the new vintage and, of course the signature 2012 – the commemorative vintage of their Classe A St Emilion classification. The day was absolutely magnificent and, again we thank Mr Perse, Philippe and the Chateau team for their extraordinary hospitality during the Bordeaux 2018 vintage campaign. You can see the photos on our Chateau Pavie 2018 gallery page.
