La Parcelle 8 spent 26 months in new French oak with additional time in bottle and is debuting nationally through Winebow Imports, retailing at $125 a bottle.

•Earlier this week, Pernod Ricard USA sponsored Women U-Night, an event in the Dallas Arts District highlighting the city’s Women’s Nighttime Safety Charter, which encourages nighttime operators to sign a pledge to prioritize women’s safety at night. “It is vital that our nightlife businesses champion the safety of women at our local establishments,” said Pernod Ricard North America chairman and CEO Ann Mukherjee. “It is our duty as leaders in the industry and in the community to encourage local residents and businesses to take action.” While the Women’s Nighttime Safety Charter is new to the U.S., other global cities like London have adopted similar initiatives.Subscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
