Terrific clip from Lucy Shaw, who writes Wine and City. (Click the link for the video clip.)

“During a recent trip to sunny Provence with Vins de Provence, I paid a visit to Château Routas in Côteaux Varois, inches away from Brat Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Château Miraval, where I was greeted by affable, baseball cap-wearing Scotsman and friend of Sean Connery, Grahame “Haggie” Haggart. Pairing up with Helena Nicklin, aka The Wine Bird, in the following video we taste the award-winning Wild Boar Rosé 2011 and an unusual Viognier/Chardonnay blend, Coquelicot 2008, the former of which is available from TheDrinkShop.com. Salut!”
