Berry Bro’s & Rudd Ltd Extra Ordinary Claret 2009

bb-eo-claretProduced for Berry by Jean-Michel Cazes, this is an elegant claret, packed with juicy black fruits and cassis with a lovely balanced finish. Perfect for Christmas day lunch and great value at £12 (though 2010 now available – also a fantastic Bordeaux vintage).

WanderCurtis strategy meeting over three clarets

Chateau Moulin Riche 2005, Langoa 1997, Margaux 2000 – a fine way to celebrate Tuesday’s highly enjoyable outdoor Spanish tasting. Very thick rare ribeyes were a great acompaniment for this selection of Bordeaux’s, and seemed to clear the mind and the air as we decided on the future of the business.

We will continue the small format wine events but make it clear that we don’t intend to make a profit from these.They are primarily fun and educational. We will build on these and then have experience and knowledge to be able to offer a host of tastings on a more commercial level. We will start work on the Channing event, with the suggestion to run corporate events and expand our distribution list.

We have received samples from Bodegas Vizcarra and we are acting as agents to find JC and importer. We have a business meeting planned regarding our wine app.

We plan to go to Austria in September for our next wine tasting tour, and will do a small format educational event later in the year.
