You know it’s going to be a decent event when the stamp on the envelope matches the invitation. The famous First Growth opened its new cellars, designed by Sir Norman Foster, at the opening of Vinexpo and invited a few friends to dinner. It was all fairly impressive.
The dinner was hosted by Château Margaux and the Grands Crus Classés of the 1855 classification. I went with my old friend Ronan Sayburn.
