The patron will also be present at the award ceremony the following day at Vinexpo Bordeaux, accompanied by Jacques Dupont, journalist with the weekly Le Point magazine (co-organizer and partner of the event). All members of the wine trade are invited to the event which will take place in Tasting Lab 4, Hall 2, at 3.30pm!
