Comedian has Joly time in Bordeaux

27 October, 2011

The Conseil Interprofessionnel du Vin de Bordeaux has teamed up with comedian Dom Joly to produce a series of videos.

Joly spent three days in the region and the videos feature chateau visits, wine school and an annual screaming contest.

Joly said: “I spent three fantastic days in Bordeaux in September. I think probably the most surprising thing for me was the variety of affordable Bordeaux wines – red, white and rosé – available.

"Like most people, I had an image of Bordeaux as being red, expensive and really only for wine connoisseurs, but in reality, there are a multitude of wines available for easy drinking with some amazing wines under £10. I would recommend a weekend in Bordeaux to anyone who loves food and wine.”

The videos can be found on You Tube.

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
