As for winemakers, the know-how and the emotions of the musicians exalt while sharing.

"When we create wine, it is a bit like us: there is creativity, we try things, if it doesn’t go well, then we come back to it and then share it. Wine is sharing, and this is perhaps why I feel good! "

This parallel between wine and jazz was a real inspiration for the pianist, so much that he plans to return to compose in Saint-Emilion, this time as a solo pianist.

"I will do everything to do it. I will come, lock myself, work like a beast and must sort something. I can not be more sincere because I was really touched. It was a sweet moment, an important interlude ... When you're there, you feel protected. It'll go far into my heart, for a long time and it will take time for me to recover."
