on GOÛTE le VIN 🍷 de GAME of THRONES dans notre 🚍 CAMPING CAR : INTERVIEW 🎤


We left to make a new report on the side of saint-Emilion and we were in the vineyards Bardet when suddenly among the range of wines that were presented to us I flashed on a bottle and I’m not told but what is this label that comes from where ? what do we do with that and there I had the good opportunity to meet Thibault who is next to me and who will tell us about this wine is of this one too, which are two cuvées straight out of what is happening in the “Game of Thrones” series that you all know, and well Thibault had the intelligence to go to recreate the wines of which one speaks in “Game of Thrones” just with that is told both in books and at once in the television series of you know, he will tell us about it now! We’re not going to lie, we, “Game of Thrones” we had never seen a single episode, on the other hand we know well the lord of the rings and to see that these two universes were similar to inevitably stung our curiosity so we asked Thibault Bardet to come for a ride in our camper to tell us the story of this strange vintage … Since then, Marie and I, every night secretly, as soon as the children are in bed, we are catching up … So hello everyone, so I started it I was a big fan of the series and one night with my roommate were just before the show drinking a bottle of wine in front of the episode and it’s a moment one of the main characters opens a bottle of wine that is a wine of “Dorn” which is an imaginary region, we said to ourselves “- Ho! we would really like to taste, to be able to taste this wine in real” so it was a revelation, and after some research I thought I must do the product did not exist so I decided to create it. so I started just then, thanks a little to the indices of the series, but it’s mostly thanks to the books where there was a lot of clues, a lot of quotes I had 40 just pages of wine quotes, and so once I had all this information I made a summary I went to see my father “- Daddy, you need a wine like this!” So, that’s to say, a wine so powerful, fruity, easy to drink, silky but a very intense color and my father he made me “-It’s easy there you describe the 100% Bordeaux Merlot” So we went on merlot, then after so in addition to the work of taste there was all the local work because “Dorn” is a rather arid region a little desert so for that to imitate this soil we took our plots only where there was sand, and as I’m really a fan I really like to go all the way, we spent in berry sizers to have exclusively only small berries to mimic the arid climate a bit because when there is an arid climate and the berries are naturally smaller all concentrated. So that’s why we went on this on this wine .. “- ok okay … but well we agree that … we are in Bordeaux we are in the region of saint-Émilion, so mythical region of Bordeaux so with a bottle that he is no less and suddenly we transgress everything and we go on ultra modern labels ultra trend and especially on a bottle that is … that is packed who is stocky, who recognizes himself slightly conical, and then a label that speaks to us first there is gold, there is bronze, we are really in a story we want to tell something, can you tell us a little bit about this label? “- yes of course then already …” “- Sorry, can we already be talking about the size of the bottle? how did you choose it? “” – I really wanted a wine not marketing “Game of Thrones” I really wanted a local wine that can be drunk at “Westeros” the region, the imaginary country of “Game of thrones” so for that I especially did not want it to be written for example “Game of Thrones” on my bottle, I was not interested because it’s I imagine that the inhabitants of “Westeros” do not know that they are in the universe “Game of Thrones” so I really wanted a bottle that if we put it in the series she lays banal with all the elements of the decor, so that’s why I chose this shape that makes it a … it’s more a bottle than a bottle it was really very important for me she is really stocky, shouldered and not a bottle Bordelaise what was made a little more industrially to facilitate the transport no I wanted something more authentic that’s also why it’s been stuffy with wax, finally clogged with corks and finished with wax to find this effect a bit of yesteryear and that’s it, so after the etiquette was made, well in mind in the spirit of “Game of Thrones” where we have taken a little graphic codes, so there then it is especially, for that one for the first cuvée where we see in fact, there is there, there is already then … The symbols of “Dorn”, the overlords of “Dorn” is the Martell, their symbols is the sun and spears, that’s why there’s all around we also learned from the vipers the olive trees because the vipers, Oberyn Martell one of the princes “Dorn” is nicknamed the viper, and he has his daughters called “Aspics of Sands” that’s why we have all around snakes we took over the writing the font of “Game of Thrones” the sun in the middle, and also including “Dorn” it was the only city, never to have been conquered by the “Targaryens” with the arrival of the dragons, that’s why we wanted to put fortifications all around the heart for a bit imaged like it’s the only rebellious of “Game of Thrones” and then after I made a vintage so that’s where I go a little traditional that is in Castillon and this cuvée if it is only in fact “the imp’s Delight” with the addition of the same graphic codes, but we have added two lion heads because there is one of the characters … There is Tyron who in the series says “once the … to sum up … once the war is over I will go to “Dorn” and I will make my own vineyard that I will call “The Imp’s delights” so, and its color is gold is its emblem is the lion, that’s why we did it’s this graphic code !! -“It’s awesome ! “- Well, we actually did that for the last season of” Game of Thrones ” So I do not think we do a lot of it even I think we’ll stop production so it really is really a limited product but after that moment I invite anyone who wants to come to the Property come, enjoy … “” – Well here I am, I invite you to come here in Vignonet so we are a few kilometers from saint-émilion come and discover the vineyards Bardet come to discover this wine if so is that there is still a little bit but normally in the boxes we keep a little bit a few and then and then like that you will also have the opportunity to discover this beautiful family and the wines that go with it and you will spend a nice moment, if you are in motorhome you can come and park along the Dordogne then if you are driving you park easily at the property! ” “- and if I can add also the 4th and 5th of May there is the” Portes ouvertes de St-Émilion ” so 80 castles open their doors, You will be welcome to come and taste all the wines that can be found here the trip by camper allows to make extraordinary meetings one will never say it enough, so if you liked this video do not forget to put a little blue, you can also subscribe, follow our news on instagram or join us on our facebook group “destination camping-car”.

    Depuis que nous avons fait cette interview, les média se déchaînent, ainsi on peut voir des interviews de Thibault Bardet dans "le Parisien", " Paris Match", BFM TV", "Golem", "Boursorama" et j'en passe… nous sommes juste passé par là un peu avant, et nous publions notre interview un peu après eux mais nous, on a des bouteilles 😉
