For us at Maxwell-Storrie-Baynes however, we could not have been more proud of our own Li Lijuan “Lily” who was sworn in with this high powered international group of wine aficionados.

The Hospitaliers de Pomerol was formed in 1968 reflecting the extraordinary growth in popularity that the Pomerol AOC has received during the past half century amongst its fellow BordeauxVineyardsvineyard AOC’s. Following in the traditions of the St Emilion “Jurade” The Hospitaliers are charged with the task of promoting Pomerol to those whom they have influence with both in France and internationally. Lily has had an important role in the ever growing relations between Chinese investors and Bordeaux over the past five years since she arrived here. Having managed a significant estate in the Entre-deux-Mers for a Chinese buyer, co-written a book about pairing Bordeaux wine with Chinese foods and now overseeing the Maxwell-Storrie-Baynes “China desk” she assists Chinese nationals with expert advice and investment opportunities for those seeking to buy a Bordeaux chateau vineyard.
