Ormiale – a Bordeaux artwork

‘Don’t filter your wine. Filter your customers.’ This is clearly the most valuable bit of advice received by artist Fabrice Domercq, since he quoted it to me each time we met recently – once at a tasting of his no-additive wines organised by their UK importer Dynamic Vines (see above) and then at a subsequent meeting I arranged because I was so intrigued by his story and its relevance to Bordeaux’s current crisis whereby all but the top layer of châteaux are running at a loss because demand for basic bordeaux has fallen to such an extent. The French government recently agreed to pay growers to distill surplus wine into alcohol and to pull out vines in uneconomic locations.



Life is always better when I wine.

Koken is meer dan een recept.
