As many of you never had a chance to meet my sister Alix (seated on the left and Business Associate at Elite Selection Wines & Spirits Co) , after two days in Champagne we enjoyed a great dinner with our friends Terence, Paul, Sarah (from left to right)at the famous “La Coupole restaurant” in Paris. As we said, Campei and Yam Sing!!!
Dear De Telmont lovers and future ones, We were very enthousiast to show to our friends how Lhopital family improved their quality champagne through 4 generations. Thanks a lot, Bertrand!
Great evening and magnificient château, this year Fête de la Fleur dinner was taking place at château d’Issan (3rd Classified growth of Margaux Estate) owns by Mr. Emmanuel Cruse, as every two years after Vinexpo we have a privilege to invite our best customers at the black-tie dinner for Bordeaux but above all they are very good friends!!!
See below my very good friend Paul from Macau who was “intronised” and he is now a Commander of La Commanderie du Bontemps Médoc, Graves, Sauternes & Barsac.
Dear Lovers of Pessac,
During Vinexpo 2009, we had the pleasure to visit and to taste Chateau Haut-Brion 2004 and Château Mission Haut-Brion 2004 (see below)

This year we can not tell that Vinexpo 2009 was busy compared to two years but we did have some great meetings more efficient in a sense. Two of our houses were presented De Telmont Champagne house and Gelas Armagnac house. See pictures below:

Dear Cognac lovers,
Everybody knows because of my roots, I do love cognac but only good ones!!!. Here, we are in presence of Pascal Fillioux (owner of Jean Fillioux house). Thank you so much Pascal!
Dear Pauillac Lovers,
Just before Vinexpo 2009, we took our friends to a private visit of Château Lafite-Rothschild and followed by a special tasting (see left and right).
Thanks again for this excellent and rare time sharing with connoisseurs.
As always the warm welcome and generosity of Mr. Didier Cuvelier (owner) is at the level of this superb Château Leoville-Poyferré (2nd Classified Growth- St-Julien estate). Thanks again, Didier!!!
Dear Armagnac Connoiseur’s,
We enjoyed our visit and tasting in June with Philippe Gélas and also our great lunch!
I do realize even today armagnac is noble as cognac…and deserve more attention than before.
Thank you Philippe!
