In this edition I will take you to meet the pas­sion­ate wine­mak­ers of not only Italy and Aus­tria but also France. It is the re­sult of ex­hil­a­rat­ing trips, amaz­ing tast­ings, dis­cov­er­ies and fab­u­lous meet­ings!

So in the first part of the mag­a­zine you will meet great wine­mak­ers from Bordeaux, Al­sace and dis­cover a few beau­ti­ful Ital­ian and Aus­trian winer­ies. In the sec­ond part you will dis­cover Ni­co­las Frion’s Wine & Food pair­ings, a great and promis­ing Chef from Bordeaux. He is the Chef of the fa­mous restau­rant Le Gabriel. N. Frion cre­ated a few recipes es­pe­cially for Vertde Vin to pair with Ital­ian and French wines. These cus­tom­ized cre­ations will tickle your taste buds !

In the third part, you will find a spe­cial Bordeaux Bordeaux En Primeurs re­port with a pre­sen­ta­tion of the year (me­terol­ogy), a TOP 100 as well as some Coups de Coeur wines.

In the fourth part you will find 700 wine tast­ing re­ports (Bordeaux, Bour­gogne, Rosés of Provence, Al­sace, Pied­mont, Vin­tage Cham­pagne, Tejo, Porto, Aus­tralia, Bri­tish Columbia…) and some French spir­its (Vin­tage Ar­magnac, Cal­va­dos, XO Co­gnac).

Bordeaux is one of the largest and one of the most renowned wine re­gions in the world. We believe its rep­u­ta­tion not only runs through the names of some very fa­mous châteaux and ex­cep­tional wine­mak­ers but its wealth is also seen in less fa­mous Châteaux. This di­ver­sity is the rich­ness of Bordeaux!

Pi­et­mont is one of the old­est wine re­gions in Europe. It offers a fan­tas­tic di­ver­sity of ter­roir (Barolo, Bar­baresco, Bar­bera d’Asti…), colors and style. Some of the great­est wines from Italy come from this re­gion.

Cham­pagne is a prod­uct syn­ony­mous with fes­tiv­ity, shar­ing, gas­tron­omy and ter­roir. It is a unique wine, both in qual­ity and in terms of no­to­ri­ety. This prod­uct has a spe­cial place in my heart that can be sum­ma­rized by the fa­mous quote of Napoleon Bon­a­parte «I drink Cham­pagne when I win, to cel­e­brate… And I drink Cham­pagne when I lose, to con­sole my­self.»

Porto is an emo­tional choice. It is easy to find a great, de­li­cious port wine «gour­man­dise « at a good value. For the anec­dote, Porto is the world’s third-old­est wine con­trolled ap­pel­la­tion and the first one for the for­ti­fied wines. Bour­gogne white wines are world renowned. We make some of best white wines of the world in this re­gion. So how can we re­sist the temp­ta­tion to dis­cover, ex­plore and taste the in­cred­i­ble di­ver­sity of Bour­gogne white wines.

Co­gnac… what can I say about this great Spirit. It’s one of the old­est and most fa­mous spir­its in the world and one of my fa­vorite del­i­ca­cies. In this mag­a­zine you will find some XO Co­gnac re­views.
