Bontemps de Bordeaux wine!
Later on the same day, Jean Michel Cazes initiated Jean Pierre into the Commanderie du Bontemps. This is a sort of wine club that has its origins back to the Moyen Age. When the members came out in their colorful robes, I felt like I witnessing the revival of the the Da Vinci Code trilogy rather than to a wine aficionado club. In any case, it was entertaining to see Jean Pierre perform the wine ceremony with humor and dignity.
