CHAI LES CARMES HAUT-BRION
"Wine is magic.
Its elaboration, a science.
Our relationship is sentimental.
Its structure is an abstraction.
Its effect is a vertigo.
Its knowledge is a culture.
Its dress is virtual.
Only the language of the immaterial, of mind, can be used to describe wine.
Its house had to be at the very least an evocation, a minimum, an intuition, a reflection. The marvel of Les Carmes Haut-Brion deserved this consistency, I hope we are worthy.”
