Notes from Ansley: Baudoinia Compniacensis

Ansley at the door to a Maison Surrenne cellar. The black stuff is a local mold, Baudoinia Compniacensis, that grows on the evaporating fumes from barrels of cognac. Below our cellar at the ranch had it after a few years, probably from the old cognac barrels we were using.
