Carole Bouquet


31.05.2021, News

On June 3, Cité du Vin is hosting famous French actress and winemaker Carole Bouquet.

Outstanding French actress Carole Bouquet, a wine lover and winemaker, is invited to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Cité du Vin in Bordeaux.

The island of Pantelleria, situated between Sicily and Tunisia, took a particularly important place in Carole’s Bouquet heart. The island name means “daughter of the winds”.

In 2005 she launched the production of her own wine there, Sangue d’Oro. With her team, she has brought abandoned vineyards back to life to craft exceptional wines.

By taking on the challenge of resurrecting a classic wine, Passito, made in the pure tradition using dried grapes, Carole Bouquet is helping to preserve the winemaking heritage of the island. Her Sangue d’Oro is an exceptional vintage from old vines, a sweet white wine made from the Muscat of Alexandria grape variety: its aromas are very intense, and the grapes boast great resistance to extreme weather conditions.

Passito is suggested to be paired with almonds and pistachios biscuits, foie gras, roquefort cheese, almonds, or chocolate.

In 2011, she was awarded with the insignia of Commandeur of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by Frédéric Mitterrand, Minister for Culture and Communication, for her contributions to both culture and gastronomy.

The meeting with Carole Bouquet will take place online and in the Cité du Vin on the 3rd of June at 7 PM CET. It will be moderated by Jérôme Baudouin, editor-in-chief of La Revue du Vin de France.

You can participate in this event on site at the Cité du Vin by booking your ticket (places are limited), or online via Zoom.
