Thank you so much for setting up such a wonderful #Winophiles event. While I didn’t get to taste the Cigalus Blanc, it is now on my list. I so appreciate the path to discovering some great wines from Languedoc.
My pleasure, Robin – glad you could join us!🍷
Thanks for hosting, great event!
Thanks so much for hosting and for giving us the opportunity to learn more about George Bertrand and his wines.
Thanks for making time during a very difficult period in your life to attend. Take care.
Thanks for hosting, Lyn. Fun to see all the different takes on Cigalus with a few others tossed in for good measure!
TY, Jeff! 🙂
Thank you for hosting and featuring Gérard Bertrand Cigalus Blanc. Love the photo of you and him together. Was that at Château L’Hospitalet during the Jazz Festival? I dream of going for a visit during that festival.
No – it was as the post-vendage dinner last September. I have heard only amazing things from other writers lucky enough to attend the Jazz Festival…keep on dreaming, because it is worth the wait. 🙂
Thanks for hosting. Have long been a fan of these wines.
Thanks, Nicole. So great so many French #Winophiles joined in the Gérard Bertrand fun! Cheers~:-)
