"But it is also necessary to know that our senses are imperfect, and that to make them faithful, the will, the attention are essential. Time helping, because the experience is very long, the thoughtful tasting provides to the taster, if he carries within him the love of Beauty, Truth and Wine, the deep joy of entering this domain where nature likes to concentrate its genius. " Jules Chauvet
