A Short Film on Visiting France’s Wine Regions

Bordeaux, Burgundy, Beaujolais, Champagne, Cognac and Provence.

1 min read

In April, I was invited on a press trip of a lifetime by the wine importer Wilson Daniels. Beginning in the city of Bordeaux, we traveled to Cognac, Paris, Champagne, Burgundy, Beaujolais and Provence. Along the way, I sampled wines, took feverish notes, snapped 2,100 photos and filmed several snippets of video that I have finally edited together into the following film.

In addition to tasting of the minuscule 2016 vintage of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (which I still can’t believe happened), highlights of the trip which I haven’t written about yet, include a taste of 1893 Cognac Lheraud, dinner at Restaurant La Maison de l’Aubrac in Paris, and a picnic lunch in the red-dirt vineyards at Château Gassier underneath Montagne Sainte-Victoire.

Once again, a special thank you to Wilson Daniels for inviting me on this trip. To learn more about my editorial policy, visit my About page.
