It’s Valentine’s week and love is in the air! This inspired Creation intern Baptiste Quinard from Burgundy to pen yet another passionate ode in praise of wine. Here is an extract from Carolyn Martin’s playful translation:
St Valentine’s Day brings to mind the Mayor of Bordeaux, Michel de Montaigne’s citation: “We never drink; we merely kiss and allow the wine to caress our soul”. That is how we enjoy wine!
. . . following the pleasures of Viognier, the lovers join in the celebration of love with the Creation Reserve Syrah. This dark and mysterious wine with its splendid architecture makes us understand that love is akin to a monument. Here the black cherries, the anise and sandalwood are like rare spices set to celebrate some ancient, mystic love.
