Grand Cercle des Vins de Bordeaux

Start date  :  23-mars-2016
End date  :  23-mars-2016
Piccadilly - London W1J 0BH
 
En Primeurs 2015 vintage: A great vintage is within sight Weather conditions were kind and each crucial step along the way was achieved successfully. Bordeaux needs a great vintage and the myth that says years ending in 5 (or 0) are great years for wine, lends itself well to the idea that 2015 will be an exceptional vintage. An exceptional vintage requires verification at a certain number of stages over the entire Bordeaux wine region and at the harvest in order to evaluate it correctly. Of course the true test is in the glass and after several years in bottle. In Bordeaux an exceptional vintage is characterized by a high level of tannins, silky tannins, along with good acidity and aromatic complexity. In order to have balanced tannins and acidity the wine requires a sufficiently rich alcohol level. These elements are necessary for the wine’s potential in their youth and for their ageing potential. Flowering is a crucial stage which takes place the first two weeks of June in exceptional weather conditions – warm, dry and sunny. The fruit set (when the grapes first start to form) should follow under the same climatic conditions. The final stages of the different grape varieties should ideally happen in August and September when the weather is warm but not excessively hot, with dry, sunny days and cool nights. Harvest: White and sparkling wines Harvest for the earlier grape varieties is Sauvignon, which begins at the end of August/beginning of September. In 2015, white grapes were harvested a week earlier than in the previous year, in roughly the first week of September. Flavourful golden Semillon grapes were picked on around 10 th September. Harvest: Red wines Harvest for Merlot began in mid-Septemver in areas where the grapes ripened early (approximately 21 st September) and ended with Cabernet grapes. The first analysis of the grapes was very encouraging, and the anthocyanins suggest a high-quality vintage. 2015 vintage: Wine tasting in London on Wednesday 23rd March 2016 Business France and the Grand Cercle des Vins de Bordeaux are delighted to present nearly 50 crus at an en primeur press and trade event taking place in central London on Wednesday 23 rd March 2016. A s well as the 2015 vintage, other vintages will also be available to taste. The Grand Cercle des Vins de Bordeaux represents top châteaux from the right and left banks. Producers will unveil a range which clearly shows that there are superb, top‑of‑the‑range and well-priced wines in Bordeaux. For more information on this event, visit:  www.grandcercletasting.uk

Fund & Grow: Business Development in the United Kingdom (Health / Masterclass Paris)

Start date  :  15-mars-2016
End date  :  15-mars-2016
Business France, 77 boulevard Saint-Jacques - 75014 Paris
 
The spotlight is on our next-door neighbour London, the helpful hub for health company funding! When thinking about international sources of funding (whether R&D or capital injection), the USA is often what first comes to mind for French and European companies. But did you know that only a mere 2h15 train ride away from Paris / 1h35 flight from Lyon is one of the most dynamic cities in the world for company funding? We’re talking about London, of course, considered by many investors as a  central hub for company funding in Europe , thanks to its enabling business environment. London is full of national and international stakeholders constantly on the lookout for new investments. From business angels to large laboratory corporate ventures and leading investment funds, any project is capable of finding sources of funding. Still relatively unknown in France, business angels provide the invaluable opportunity for any company offering a marketable service and looking for active investors to help them develop their business, to get their foot in the door of the UK market. Although extremely competitive, the UK market offers valuable business opportunities to any innovative company that is ready to invest. Here are some figures: - In 2014, British business angels invested £1.6m in the UK. - 29% of investments made by business angels were in the health and medtech sectors. - 40% of business angels investing in health and medtech between 2012 and 2015 expect a return on investment of between 1-5x, 20% expect a return of between 6-10x, and 10% expect a return of 10x and above. On  15 March 2016 , British and French experts in business development and finance will lead a  special seminar at the Business France head office in  Paris and   answer questions from French companies wishing to know more about the potential benefits that the UK could bring to their businesses. Please contact Pierre Goffaux, Trade Adviser at Business France UK , for further information on this this event and on potential sources of funding in the UK.
