VertdeVin - - Interview -

Wine is an im­por­tant part of my life and it is a job that you can not do with­out pas­sion when you are a pro­ducer.

Ob­vi­ously in my pro­fes­sional life the in­ter­ac­tions with my tech­ni­cal team and my con­sult­ing oe­nol­o­gist (Michel Rol­land) are al­ways ex­cit­ing. I also love in­ter­act­ing with con­sumers and try­ing to make them be­come reg­u­lars.

In my so­cial life: the mi­lieu of wine is an en­vi­ron­ment that is in­creas­ingly open where one in­creas­ingly ac­quires friends.

In my pri­vate life: wine is of­ten too im­por­tant: We can not get up with­out think­ing about the weather and the con­se­quences that it can have es­pe­cially dur­ing the har­vest where ob­vi­ously the sleep is long to come ...

In my cir­cle of close friends I try to avoid talk­ing about wine but very of­ten some­one comes back to it just to talk about the wine served at the ta­ble.

What was your last wine emo­tion?

My last great emo­tion was a Pétrus 82 which con­firms that this vin­tage is very ex­cep­tional and marked the spir­its.
