Welcome to La Madelene : Rhone Wine Holidays

The Swedes hit La Madelene

blog33.JPGblog1.JPGblog2.JPGblog4.JPGJust finished a wonderful week here hosting Lars Rystadius’s wine tasting group from Sweden - 11 wine fans who have been touring European vineyards and tasting wines together for the last 13 years…what a wonderful bunch of people and what an appetite for life and wine. The pics show our visit to Domaine Montirius - watching Eric Saurel punching the cap on his bio-dynamic Vacqueyras, lunch in the late September sun at Verger des Papes washed down with a magnum of Bosquet des Papes and the bottle haul from our last evening’s drinking together: for the record…Bernardins dry muscat, Rabasse-Charavin Rasteau 2004, Gigondas Goubert cuvee Florence 1999, CDP Beaucastel 2000, CDP Grand Tinel cuvee Alexis Establet 2000, CDP La Nerthe 1994, and Bernardins Muscat de Beaumes de Venise which went down well with the pear and almond tart. Lars thanks for everything…you are all most welcome back very soon. The last pic shows the team singing happy birthday to Jude in Swedish…amazing!
