A MEET IN FRANCE?

Recommended Posts

Are any of you discerning Jaguar enthusiasts likely to be in the Bordeaux area of France later this summer or early autumn? What about a get-together of a special kind?

The idea came to me after spending a very pleasant afternoon with Paddy O’Flynn, proprietor of The Wine Buff in the beautiful historic town of Saint Émilion. My wife and I, together with some friends, enjoyed sampling several exquisite wines and, importantly for me, most of them were affordable.

My thought is that if some of us could meet up in Saint Émilion we could imbibe in some rare and special flavours. Paddy is an interesting, informative and entertaining host, extremely knowledgeable about fine wines and I’m sure that you and your other ‘halves’ would have great time.

To get the ball rolling I’ll suggest the weekend of 10th / 11th September. Nothing has been arranged yet but if there’s enough interest I’ll follow up with more information.  Simply follow up this post and I’ll keep in touch.

Hey James,

I can think of few things better than driving the S-Type to St Emilion and imbibing Bordeaux with fellow enthusiasts (both of Jaguar's and the wine)! I think I'd need to stay nearby or assign a designated driver that wasn't me if we'e doing it properly! Not sure as to our schedules but I suspect it won't be possible, but I'll check it out and let you know if it's doable.

Cheers, Russ

Hi Russ

You’ve raised a good point, I might have left this too late, I suspect that, like you, many people will  have already made their travel plans for this year.

If there’s little interest this time I shall probably come back to the idea later in the year with a view to a rendezvous in 2017.

Until then, have a great summer,

Jim
