The picture with Pierre is at La Promenade Hotel in Bourgueil. It can't be the place you are talking about? Great place for wine, also the best Beef tongue I have ever had! I spent 5 days there had a great time. The owner turned me on to several great wines.


Mike, it is indeed La Promenade.


FYI, 2010 Trinch! available from Kermit Lynch in Berkeley and also very delicious.

My Photo
I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
