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.
