Welcome to Just Delight Me…I am a true passionate for Food, service and Hospitality. I have spent my entire career dedicated to exceeding people's expectations and creating customer delight. In my early days as a student, I aspired to work as a journalist, however ended up taking a part-time job in a local restaurant whilst studying. I trained in the art of cuisine before studying management. I have worked in many amazing places, with some true inspirers. Later on, I worked for myself for 10 years and ran two amazing restaurants. I work in Contract catering now, but have aspirations to mentor others and bring praise to the table for places off the beaten track that fully deserve recognition. I know first hand how tough the restaurant business can be, and the difficulties one may face in light of high street competition. I support the small and hardworking business people of this world, but also love to be delighted… twitter.com/suzannehemchaou
We have six bottles of this little beauty, and after googling it and discovering that one cannot buy it wondered if I should opening it or flogging it. I decided on the former due to the fact that I’ve been drinking far to much mediocre vino lately and deserved a little treat. My father in law purchased this little stash who very sadly is no longer with us. I lit a candle, put it next to his photo, poured a little glass for him too and raised mine to his honour. My father in law (Fouad), was a lover of all wonderful things. Fine wines were one of his passions alongside treating his family every year to a holiday in Provence en mass. Being a middle eastern family, things never ran smoothly especially when we used to traipse around Cannes looking for a table of 20 most evenings. Caution to the wind is how we lived on those holidays and wonderful they were. I’m going off piste here, so down to business……this wine is a Bordeaux blend, silky, distinguished, luxurious, wonderfully classy with thin tannins. The 2002 is a divine example and literally went down a treat last night. So moorish in fact that it felt like it had evaporated. I had to share the bottle but could have happily drank the entire bottle plus more I guess. I doubt though that I would be feeling so bright this morning as I do. At 12.5% abv it was just perfect in fact- no grogginess for me. The wine is made from grapes from the Soussan commune in the Margaux appellation, and the chateau itself has had a renovation of sorts providing stunning brand new oak casks. Not sure if that was pre or post my wine but the clarity was just spectacular in any case. Highly recommended by me if you can get some….. Cheers to you Foufou.
