Guidelines to Visiting Parents
And I have four boys! I have a problem! But I have a brother who has a little girl, so maybe it will be the little girl. Yes, it never stopped but a long time ago there was not only wine. We had a lot of cows and it is a really big property, so we had different activities. But wine has been produced since the beginning. For us it is a family tradition.

T o introduce the children to the tradition of wine drinking! I have my property, he has his property. Do you ever keep secrets, if you have a really, really good wine, do you keep it from him? Yes, every day. I love the weather forecast! But for me, organic wine is not the real issue. The final issue is not to put any pesticides. Yes, at Larrivaux we prefer not to use a lot of added substances. Sometimes, if you have to use 1 liter of a certain product, we decide to only use half a liter.
We want to make a good product but without a lot of bad substances to protect it. When I was young I wanted to be a doctor. So not wine! I studied law at university for four years. In my fifth year, I decided to go into wine law. My aunt was working at Larrivaux but only on the weekends — it was not her principal job. Basile and I got married at Larrivaux in But Larrivaux needed someone, so I decided to stay for a few months… and I never left!
So you have to be passionate! It depends on the year. This past harvest, we only produced half of what our production normally is because of the frost in April.

Etiquette involving your guest room and in-laws
For me, when I drink wine from Larrivaux, I want to eat something. Which is perfect for me because I love to eat laughing! For me, French cuisine is when you have a plate in front of you and you know what you are going to taste. And when you have it in your mouth, you recognize the different tastes of the things you have on your plate. Do you produce your own fruits and vegetables here at Chateau Larrivaux? Not all of them, but I do have some vegetables, yes.

Did food always play an important role in your family? Wine was always there, but the food? Yes, yes, yes. I always saw my grandmother cooking, my aunt and my mother too. I always saw people working in the kitchen. You have the vineyards, but you also have the seaside. If you could choose one person to cook a meal for you, who would this person be and what would this person cook for you? Then, I choose my husband, because for my birthday he sometimes makes paris- brest and I love the paris-brest!
So every year I ask him to make one for me. Maybe my mother, to make some profiteroles — some choux with some vanilla cream inside and some caramel on the top. Here at Larrivaux, not every Sunday, but often, we have some choux with caramel. It depends on the recipe. For family recipes, I prefer to be with my family: my children, my husband, my mother. I always put a little bit, a little more, a little less….
But I want to learn. There is a dessert in Bordeaux — a strawberry macaron — inside you have whipped cream with vanilla and fresh strawberries. Cap Ferret is a dream in pastel blue and pink. The beach seems endless, the sky sinking silently into the waves that hit the shore like a rock, angry thunderous foam vanishing meekly on the golden sand.
I came to this headland touching the Atlantic in the Aquitaine region in France to eat oysters. In the summer months, the seaside villages turn into a crazy beehive, we skipped that and were welcomed by tranquil bliss.
This is the lap where mother nature lets the best oysters in the world grow slowly over 4 to 5 years, nurtured and rinsed by clear French waters. They are like babies, you have to look after them.
When Alison told me to pick oysters from the baskets at the entrance of the restaurant for my lunch, I felt like a kid in a candy store. Various shapes and colors, small and large shells, and they all smelled and looked so beautiful. I had an oyster tasting, which I highly recommend to get a feeling for the fine differences — there are no rules, you just follow your taste. The same counts for serving, some prefer this treat from the sea pure or with a squeeze of tangy lemon, or with sour mignonette, French shallot vinaigrette, just a few drops are enough.
Alison added a new inspiration to the palate, freshly chopped mint leaves. Whatever you go for, just make sure that the oysters come straight from the sea, freshly cracked open in front of your eyes, like at Chez Boulan. For the mignonette, in a small bowl, mix together the vinegar and shallot and season to taste with a little pepper. Arrange the oysters on a large plate and enjoy them pure, with a squeeze of lemon, a pinch of mint, or a drizzle of the mignonette — and a glass of chilled white wine!

For 10 years. He grew up here but after university, he went to Paris to be a journalist. He and his father used to speak about the idea to create a degustation — like this garden. This is the garden where we welcome our guests, but it used to be the garden of the Boulan family.
