Eleanor had the pleasure to join the diner hosted in Château Versailles by the Commanderie du Bontemps.
Within Versailles, the diner was hosted in the famous Gallerie de batailles. Which was illustative for the current situation of the Bordeaux Grand Cru Classés, according the Emmanuel Cruse (President du Conseil des grands crus classés en 1855).
The increased taxes in the US & the Corona virus in Asia both have a negative impact on two of the biggest markets for Bordeaux. While other markets still perform strong, we all hope those markets will recover relatively soon.
