How about a little wine poster porn for a Wednesday? The image here is by Bergerac born Jean-Pierre Got. He producers, exclusively it would seem, vintage-styled posters for the wine trade. This image is for the Castel owned Malesan brand from Bordeaux utilising their racehorse logo. ‘Pur Bordeaux’ is a play on pur-sang meaning thoroughbred horse (or pure blooded) and is based on the bronze horses statue on the Quinconces Plaza fountain in Bordeaux. There is a limited edition (500) signed and numbered Malesan posters available at the Summer “Bordeaux Fête le Vin ! ” (June 29-July 2) wine festival.
