On the expansive lawns of the Medoc first growth, Baron Eric de Rothschild and Philippe Casteja, president of the Conseil des Grands Crus Classes welcomed 350 journalists and chateau proprietors.

Guests included the cream of Bordeaux wine society, as well as journalists from every major – and minor – wine publication in the world.
