Who & Why

This year we tasted 801 wines, not only at the auction house, but also at organized wine tastings and on the fantastic Bordeaux trip organized by Armin Diel.
We had 10 perfect wines with full points (20/20) and 28 wines that were almost perfect (19.5-19.8/20). This high percentage is explained by our selection.
