Château Bujan - Côtes de Bourg - big-up to the Wine maker!

Clin d'oeil de Bujan
Clin d'oeil de BujanTHe bottle of Chateau BujanJust wanted to thanks Mr. Pascal Méli for gently welcoming us each year since 2007 on its booth during the Auchan (grocery chain) Wine Fair in Roncq France. Some years ago, Pascal handed over to us a glass of his wines. Both myself and my friend (Pierre Emmanuel) immediately liked the wine and the personage!. Since then, we are reloading our inventory with its Château Bujan and its high-end wine "Clin D'oeil (“Bujan's Wink") every year. Big-up to Pascal! keep going. See you next year, same place or maybe before at in your cellar!.

Your driver( s) in your pro life : Authenticity and humility

1.    What do you like about wine?
It's the best, simplest and shortest way of communication.

2.    How would you recommend to taste wine?
With the persons you love the most in your favorite and most comfortable place ;)
But if you ask how to taste wine in a technical way, I would say never forget to aerate or decant consistently the wine and use the most suitable glass.

3.    What's your favorite wine?
A dry and mineral Muscadet from Joseph Landron in the Loire Valley.
My favorite can change everyday depending of the temperature and my personal mood... So this one is the one for today ;)

4.    If you were a something related to wine (grape, terroir, wine...), what would you be, and why?
I would be a schist rock at the foot of a vine of Chenin Blanc in Savennieres, one of the most amazing Terroir that you can find overlooking the Loire river.
