Hey Mr. Celce,

Another excellent write-up on this superlative website. The tasting looks like it was a once in a lifetime event, and I'm sure this post is going to be the envy of the small but devoted group of CRB-lovers around the world. I am not familiar with your use of the term "foreign wines" for the Michaud and Marionnet wines which were at this event. Where they made by these other vignerons using grapes from CRB, or were they opened to add variety?


Thanks John,
My fault, I typed CRB in front of : a "foreign" wine. It's not a CRB of course (I've just corrected). Someone in the party joked about two "foreign" wines, meaning just that they were'nt from Clos Roche Blanche. They hadn't any relation whatsoever with CRB's vineyards, they were just added to the tasting for additional interest.

Bertrand – wonderful write up! Chapeau!

John. I called the 1989 Cabernet from Michaud and the 1990 Gamay from Henry Marionnet 'foreign' wines partly in jest as the Michaud comes from a short distance away in Noyers sur Cher but on the north side of the Cher, whereas the Clos Roche Blanche is on the south side. Marionnet is from further away in Soings on the edge of the Sologne and at the extreme east of the Touraine AC.

I added the two wines as they were both from very good vintages and thought it would be interesting to see how they were showing and we had nothing from these two vintages from the Clos Roche Blanche.
