I took this photo of Jérôme Prévost yesterday morning, in his cellars in Gueux. I love how dramatic it is—there wasn’t a lot of light, but my little pocket Canon point-and-shoot can sometimes do surprising things. Among the many wines that we tasted was the 2007 rosé, the first that he’s ever made. It’s a blend of the 2007 Les Béguines and a small percentage of red wine from the same vineyard, and even though it was only just bottled in July and won’t be properly disgorged for another year, it already promises to be amazing. Naturally, it inspired me to take another dramatic photo.
