Can a wine lover be limited to just one wine region of a country? Surely not. A thought that compelled me to chart a course in France from Champagne to Bordeaux, Rhône Valley,Beaujolais and finally to Paris.
My maiden wine tasting on Jour de Bastille for my French language institute saw Taittinger Champagne, Corbière red wine, French baguette and a number of enthusiastic souls saying “ah oui!”
Certain wine expeditions begin on an unconventional note. Mine has been one of those from being a person handling guns to one handling wine.
