TRAIT – D – UNION

Monday 16 April 2012, Domaine Jacques Selosse, Avize

In Anselme Selosse style this was the “On”.

A note-card with tasting details, simply folded in three, with design and support to write and rest your glass on at once.

It advised:

A common appellation
Paths that cross
Villages that share
Gestures that connect and give a sense
Of wines of reference
From the same sun and different soils
Words exchanged
A moment ‘avisé’
A tasting
A hyphen. ‘Trait-d-union’

(my translation)

TRAIT – D – UNION

Une appellation commune
Des chemins qui se croisent
Des villages qui se partagent
Des gestes qui relient et qui donnent sens
A des vins référents
D’un même soleil et de sols différénts
Des mots échangés
Un moment avisé
Une dégustation
Trait-d-union.

Les Artisans de Champagne Le Salon à Reims 17 April 2012

Making its debut as a “Salon des refusés” in 2011, Les Artisans de Champagne again showed their Champagnes in a Reims annex the day after the third edition of Terres et Vin in Aÿ.

14 Artisans from Champagne each presented 3 vins clairs and 3 Champagnes.

1 guest invited from Burgundy, Nicolas Rossignol, showed a trio of vintages 2008, 2009 and 2012 from two Volnay 1er Crus Cevret and Cailleret.

Following an evening eating and drinking stars with the Artisans at L’Assiete de Champagne, the second exhibition installed this impressive avant-garde “Salon des Admis”.
