its all over for another year

its been an amazingly intense week and now Bordeaux seems strangely empty.

we still managed to finish in style though with a great "post primeurs party" at Max Bordeaux with free flowing Montrose 2004, Pichon Baron 2004, Pichon Lalande 2004, Carbonnieux Blanc 2006 and Domaine de Chevalier Blanc 2006 and lots of fun.

thanks to all who participated. hope you had a safe journey back and are enjoying the first night off in over a week.

looking forward to seeing you all next year.

Léoville Poyferré

Huge thanks to Didier Cuvelier for coming to the Wine Gallery yesterday evening with a fantastic selection of wines - 2006, 2004, 2000 and 1996.

Tastings like these on a Thursday night just seem to make the weekends last longer. What on earth am I going to drink tonight to follow that ?

Thomas Duroux certainly wowed the crowds last night with an incredible tasting of Chateau Palmer - including the incredible 1998 vintage which is just simply fabulous at the moment.

Talk about longue en bouche ... if I close my eyes, I can still remember what it tastes like ! Wow !

Bordeaux destined to become new tourist hub

Bordeaux Merignac airport has just announced new flight routes that means that its never been easier to get to the wine capital of the world. All in all, 73 direct city flights !

To celebrate, we've started telling the inflight magazines about the Max Bordeaux Wine Gallery. Check out the latest edition of "Yeah Baby" ...

website on line !

its a little later than planned - and for that we apologise - but the Max Bordeaux website is now on line.

this is a really exciting venture for us and we hope that, in time, this will become an important hub on all information concerning Bordeaux - the wines, the city, the places to go, the people ...

stay tuned - it changes daily !
