A happy 9/11 in New York


Could not resist photoshoping the above photo and replace former French President Jacques Chirac's favourite drink with a bottle of my own favourite beverage in its identical yellow  livery ;-)

A full busy day, father and son sparkling lunch (with Champagne Pol Roger... what else ?) together with Christine Wheeler that has graciously hosted Jean Frédéric for most of his NY stay. Christine, other than being a "doctor of the soul", is also involved in Arlene Willis' Grapes for Humanity. What better place than the Modern where Belinda Chang and her team promote Alsace to a point that the region should seriously consider making them honorary citizens of Alsace !

Off then to Acker Merrall, Founded in 1820, which is in their own words "America's Oldest and Finest Wine Shop". Instore tasting conducted by 13th generation Jean Frédéric, his dad just acting as paparazzi. Thank you to all their team for introducing our next generation and our wines to their clients.

The highligt of the day will be the long awaited and planned dinner at Mandarin Oriental's Asiate. Our 3 main grapes in 4 different flights going crescendo all the way up to our rare SGN "S" with a menu with wine pairing that will long be remembered by the happy few. Thank you Alice and Dan for making this possible.
