    Not to mention half the Top 14 French rugby players. Even the 2007 World Cup Coach Bernard Laporte has a Gaillac estate. Jauzion, Pelous fight for listings at the club restaurant. The other half of course have restaurants – nothing new there. Michelak managed to lose €1.2m in 6 months, whereas Poitrenaud and Pelous partner with established operators.
