Meeting a couple that was making fantastic wine in south of France, Catherine and Laurent Delaunay.
They got me acquainted with the wines of burgundy and pinot noir and Nuits-Saint-Georges; and when I had the chance to be invited as a foreigner to attend today the 59 wine auction in the Clos de Vougeot with the good cause for the Hospices de Nuits.
I was really excited to attend. I learnt a lot about wines, we tasted an excellent vintage, it was 2019.
And we bought some bottles.
It was a fantastic weekend!
