A very special day at Brasserie GENTIL in... Tokyo


A few years ago we had the pleasure of welcoming Tomita-san on a tour of our vineyards together with top sommeliers, organised by our Japanese agents Jeroboam. Just over a year ago we received our Japanese friend with his wife for a private visit to us where the couple was looked after by my small family. It seems this visit made quite an impression on Tomita-san that decided to create his brasserie that he decided to name Brasserie GENTIL.

As this is a premiere, I has offered to pay a visit to Tomita-san's newly opened establishment. He just took advantage of my brief Tokyo stay to organise a typical Alsace lunch for some of his customers...

Needless to say that GENTIL was served with some tarte flambée and with the excellent choucroute made from local cabbage. A very rare Magnum of our Pinot Noir Les Neveux 2003 was served for the occasion, much to the delight of the happy guests.

Many more new friends were made on that occasion, hoping they will visit Alsace one day and make new friends themselves... and spread the word.
