The "fête du vin" lasted 3 days on the 2 km Garonne river bank in Bordeaux. 650,000 wine degustations have occured: first of all, check the color, then smell it (the post) eyes closed to better appreciate the different aromas, and then taste it in your mouth.

Salut Claude. The finer things in life appreciated with such aplomb. Nicely caught. I wonder what thoughts are floating in his head as he assesses the nectar of the gods. Amicalement. Klaudio.

Now I wish I was there! Take glass, fill with wine, take a slurp and get drunk - the English way! Ha ha!
Nice candid shot as always.

Skål! A very attractive picture, well composed! The man here is really fully concentrated, I hope he approved of the wine.

this fellow looks a bit different than the "pirate" man you photographed a while back.
perhaps we can get them together and just see what happens haha
its exactly as you wrote in your note, the man seems to be following your precise directions.
good catch...speaking of which..that looks like a rather large ring on that woman's finger on the right!

Perfectly timed shot for the seasoned street photographer :-) The concentration on the man's face is very explicit discerning different wine aromas. Well captured!
Have a nice day always,

Ah, how typically French! This man is definitely savouring this glass of wine - smelling it and absorbing all the wonderful fragrances of it - before finally tasing it. I wonder if the person on the right is British - glass already empty and waiting for the next one!
A lovely candid shot, perfectly taken just at the right moment with good light and colours and excellent clarity.

Hello Claude, Nice scene from the wine testing. This man seems a connoisseur, he has closed his eyes for better smelling. Hopefully the aroma was good then the taste will be also good. Small portion, when he wants to test many wines. Perfect portrait. The woman on the right is waiting for the next probe. I wouldn't appreciate anything - I drink no wine at all.
