i have this one at home , but i dont Know if its the good one :) 

nice video! love that cleaned trachy, it looks so tropical. 

Btw i see nice some aloe saponaria have you tried with striatula its is so fast and even more hardy than saponaria...

Thank you much, i'm happy you like it ;)  no i didn't try yet, but the aloe i got here are very fast to grow, so if the striatula is faster its so cool :) i'm gonna check if i can find some on them and try them :) thanks for your tips :)

Better.........?? hahahahah  i would say very very very good yes !! lol but better.... who knows? 

 

Ici, le rosé est roi (presque 90 % de la production régionale). C’est d’ailleurs en Provence que sont produits les plus beaux rosés du monde. Les meilleurs d’entre eux peuvent être classés selon plusieurs profils. Certains offrent un caractère frais, délicieusement fruité et désaltérant, comme au domaine des Terres Promises, aux châteaux Rasque et La Coste. D’autres séduisent par leur fort caractère, expression d’un seul cépage, tel le pur braquet salin du château de Bellet, ou d’un assemblage original comme au Clos Cibonne où les rosés font la part belle au tibouren, un vieux cépage méditerranéen. Leur personnalité peut aussi provenir de la patte du vinificateur. À ce titre, le très coloré et intense bandol du domaine de la Bégude ou la cuvée Garrus du château d’Esclans, élevée presque un an sous bois, sont incomparables. D’autres vignerons laissent leur vin s’approprier le plus possible l’expression du terroir. Citons le goût ferrugineux et iodé spécifique à la commune d’Ollioules du domaine de Terrebrune, à Bandol.

We did have a 1990 Chateau Mouton-Rothschild last night and it was very good in the French astringent style,....followed it up with a 2003 Sawyer Cellars Bradford Meritage (Bordeaux style), which kicked its butt! :)

Looks similar to Las Medulas (a gold mine in my area made by the Roman Empire)
