Dear wine lovers,
For the last 15 years, I have been used to tour the US in order to promote wines from other vineyards. This time, I was so blessed to include Rouge-Bleu wines in the tour.
And another blessing arrived just by coincidence a week before I took off : Our Mistral red which already had been awarded by a Gold Medal in the Paris Agricultural Fair received a 91 points on the Wine Spectator !
Of course, this has brought even more excitement to this tour. Thank you to all of you who have joined the 14 wine events (tasting, lunch, dinner) and thank you so much for having supported our wines. Please find here pictures of the photo album and here is also a part of the signing sheet.
As those awards come very rapidly to us, I would like to express that I don't take them for granted. True is th at we have started our wine venture with an outstanding 2007 vintage, weather conditions that we have been able to magnify with our biodinamic farming, our very old vines and our traditional winemaking with concrete tanks.
We have worked as much to continue this quality level with the 2008, a cooler vintage which has already expressed its potential with our very fresh and elegant rosé (heavy file - takes a while to open). As for the 2008 reds, they need a little time to smooth down but will surely have the "good spirit" and a lot of character.
