|"When good wine and the stories about wine by Jean Claude Pirotte are mixed together, you know there have to have been highlights. That's exactly what took place Friday, May 23rd at Francine and Clément Klur's vineyard in Katzenthal. Readings and tastings proposed by Yves Lenoir and Patrice Verdeil based on the stories of JC Pirotte. With a vagabond humor characterised by a confident tone and anecdotes, they shared their passion for mystérious blends. Senses capable of exciting the tasters. 10 short proses accompagnied charming, cultivated, and poetic conversation. On the piano, Antoine Pollac, distilled perfectly delicious music to accopmany the texts.
honored by certain rituals adpoted by the supporting public, it's an extraordinary garden..., no I don't remeber the name of the lost ball...., if I die I want to buried in a cellar with goood wine....So many songs for the cellars of wine or Beaujolais or Chambertin. Elixirs of youth were distributed to 80 lucky people from all over France who crowded the cellar. For the introduction, Jacqueline de Pauw, the director of the media archives of Kaysersberg and the association "par monts et par mots" presented the evening of poetry of the "Atelier du Rhin" that Clément Klur, a good-humored wine-grower, entitled under the themes "Gentil" (kind) et du "Voyou" (thug). Six grape types of alsace were served to winelovers throughout the night in the garden under a mild summer night. " original article in French from "Dernières Nouvelles d'Alsace mai 2008."
