2014 Cézanne

2014 Cézanne

I ran with the bulls in Pamplona the summer I turned nineteen. A French friend, JJ, from Aix-en-Provence was my partner in crime.  “La fiesta de San Fermín” is seven days and seven nights of food and wine. Full tilt boogie. You wake early every morning to join the “machos” in the street and test your courage against bulls that are as big as a Volkswagen. Thankfully, we spent two weeks recovering in Aix at JJ’s family’s estate. It was once owned by the Cezanne family. He painted many of his works there. JJ’s father introduced me to Sancerre, his favorite wine, and cheese from Abbaye de Citeaux. Heaven.

The “Cézanne” is tribute to Aix and my love of Sauvignon Blanc. Vive la France and à votre santé!
