Pic(k) of the Week: Wine discussions

Wine discussions

Cedric Vallors (r) – the U.S. Portfolio Manager for Domaines Barons de Rothschild– sits in animated discussions at a wine dinner.

And this was only at the start of the evening. Still to come: six wines from Chateau Lafite Rothschild, with each wine matched to a dinner course.

The Palm Restaurant
Tysons Corner, Virginia.
24 February 2015.

The Lafite estate has produced wines since the 1670s. It was designated as a Premier Cru Classé in 1855. A few years later, in 1868, Baron James de Rothschild would purchase Lafite.

  • Caveat lector: As a representative for Select Wines, Inc. —a wine and beer wholesaler in northern Virginia— I sell the wines of Domaines Barons de Rothschild. Any opinions here are mine alone.
