Salut Monsieur Sarkozy!

Monday, May 7th, 2007


It is amazing just how selective memory can be, and in this instance, I refer to the American pistol whipping of for their opposition to the invasion of Iraq in 2003, which culminated in the bizarre use of the term ‘freedom fries‘, which I never quite understood. However, history is kind to the righteous, and France has made it through their election with Sarkozy in power, who I’ve been rooting for; whilst America is close to the end of its war on terror, and the decision to invade Iraq is as unpopular as ever. Indeed freedom fries seems a peculiar thing for the American public to have embraced, especially seeing as much of America’s initial freedom is owed to France for their support during the civil war when America was but a baby.

Sarkozy winning will have numerous impacts on the wine industry, as the man has vowed to take numerous steps toward reinstating French national pride in his first 100 days. Sarkozy has thus far broken many conventions, and with unconventional campaigns to win popularity like the Disco Sarkozy website, lovers of French wine can look forward to his promise to allow French wines more advertising, and to make the strategy for all AOC wines more modern and less restricted in their marketing approach.

Grape Thinking would like to say a heartfelt ‘salut!’ to Nicholas Sarkozy, and looks forward to France regaining its much deserved stature.
