Wish My Name Was Brendan Moore
Nice rack. From vincon.com

We at UJ have been speaking a lot about wine tours in France lately. We want to go on them, but basically can't figure out how to do them our way.

The tours we've found seem either too hand-held, or too long, too expensive or too serious - and then we found Brendan Moore, the British-born, Chablis-residing, Burgundy-specialising, wine guru.

Moore offers tailor-made tours (couple of hours to a couple of days) that give you as much or little help as you need on your wine tasting journey. As a Brit, who's been living in the region for over 25 years - as well as being a wine consultant/expert for the last 15 - it's safe to say you'll be in good hands with Mr Moore. And not only when it comes to the tasting; Brendan knows of and can organise great dining spots, air-conditioned cars for transport (essential) and offers hotel recommendations, local history and insider knowledge.

And as you've probably read already, there's serious hype around 2005 wines - supposedly wines of '05 are the best they've been in 20 years - and, rumour has it, that these wines will be completely gone in less than two months.

So if you have any hope of getting your mitts on a case (or ten), seems like now's the time to cross the channel and fill up the car. With wine.
