18 Mar 2011/03/18 3 Chateaux Press Dinner
Together with our UK press partner Phillips-Hill Wine Marketing, Speechmark Bordeaux organised on 3 March a press dinner for 3 chateaux La Pointe, Marquis de Terme and La Dauphine. Three different appellations with different wines but with a number of similar objectives -Share their dynamic approach in the vines and cellars with the British wine press and communicating with the trade and consumers. The 3 producers spent a very enjoyable evening at the recently opened Michelin starred restaurant Gauthier Soho. The dinner was lively and full of interesting discussion on topics such as primeurs 2010, the current UK market and of course the wonderful meal made by top Chef Alexis Gauthier, that was a perfect match with the wines.
Among the journalists who attended were Margaret Rand (Decanter), Nicholas Faith (World of Fine Wine), Chris Losh (Imbibe), Gemma McKenna (Harpers) – all thrilled by this original idea of bringing together Pomerol, Fronsac and Margaux…all under the same roof!
