No Frédéric Mabileau tonight

"Vos papiers!"

Passport control 1 Frédéric Mabileau 0

Unfortunately although tonight's tasting and dinner with the wines of Frédéric Mabileau will be going ahead it will be without Frédéric himself. However, we will be fortunate in having Thomas Meunier, their commercial director, who is very involved with everything in the winery and the vineyard. Thomas speaks very good English and we will be in good hands. Tonight's wines will feature a rare vertical of three vintages of L'Eclipse, Frédéric's top wine.

Why no Frédéric you will no doubt ask. A very good question! I saw Frédéric with Thomas at Tours airport this morning as I was going through security and expected to see them both in the departure gate before boarding the Ryanair plane. No sign of them, so I got on the plane and saw Thomas was one of the last to get on. It was only after we were airborne that I was able to get to speak to Thomas and he explained what had happened:

Frédéric's identity card was out of date, so invalid for travel! He does have a valid passport but he had left that in Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil!

Our sincere apologies that Frédéric will not be with us tonight as advertised but as you can see due to circumstances beyond our control!
