LeDomduVin: Jacques Selosse et La Conseillante
Today, for a private lunch, I brought these two bottles chosen by the host (as always, suggested by your humble servant 😇 🍷🥂).
I like people who still dare to drink for the lunch!
In my opinion, it is very pleasing to see, as it has become a rare thing with the rise of low/no alcohol wines (and other beverages), as well as the loud and heavy anti-alcohol ad campaigns and the rapidly growing no-alcohol attitude, in recent years.
I mean, put yourself in my shoes, it is extremely difficult for a Sommelier, like me, who dedicated 32 years of his life and career to wine and spirits (alcohol in general), to see its decline and be reduced to nearly nothing, after being produced for thousands of years, without being able to do anything to prevent it.
Wine must no longer be viewed as a vulgar alcoholic beverage intoxicating and poisoning mankind, as it has been described and presented lately, but, once again, as having the intrinsic cultural and traditional values that made it part of a large majority of human lives for the past 6,000 years, at least.
NB: Tasting notes for these 2 wines coming soon
