August Bordeaux
August 1849. Chaillot. To August Franchomme in Paris: "Please send some of you Bordeaux over to me. I need to have a glass of wine today and I have nothing at home. But do wrap the bottle up and don’t forget to mark it with you stamp, you know – the messengers!! […] How suspicious I have become!"
When He live in Paris, Chopin liked to drink wines – French and imported. His favourites were: Rüdesheimer that is Riesling from the banks of the Rhine River, champagne and more popular at that time among citizens of France red Bordeaux.
