VertdeVin - - News - Jonathan Choukroun Chichep­or­tiche

that I in­vite you to dis­cover this 2017/2018 Win­ter edi­tion of VERT­DEVIN mag­a­zine. For this is­sue I chose to ex­plore and to taste prod­ucts from France, Aus­tria, Si­cilia, Scot­land, Ire­land, South Africa and Ore­gon. It is the re­sult of ex­hil­a­rat­ing trips, amaz­ing tast­ings, dis­cov­er­ies and fab­u­lous meet­ings!

So in the first part of the mag­a­zine you will meet great wine­mak­ers and spir­its­mak­ers from Ore­gon, Scot­land and Ire­land. In the se­cond part you will dis­cover Ro­main Guyot Wine & Food pair­ings, a great and promis­ing Chef from Bordeaux. He is the Chef of the fa­mous restau­rant Le Gabriel. Chef Guyot cre­ated a few recipes es­pe­cially for Vert­deVin to pair with Cognac VS, Cognac VSOP and Cognac XO. Th­ese cus­tom­ized cre­ations will tickle your taste buds ! In the third part, you will find a spe­cial spot light on Sauternes & Food Pair­ing. We are all used to tast­ing Sauternes with foie gras but there are so many other things to dis­cover. The wines of Sauternes of­fer such di­ver­si­ties of style, of wines that it is easy to match them with many salty and sweet recipes. Test new pair­ings and dis­cover them to your fam­ily and friends. Feel free to think out­side the box, you will not be dis­ap­pointed !

In the fourth part you will find 600 wine & spir­its tast­ing re­ports (Bordeaux, Bour­gogne, Provence, Châteauneufdu-Pape, Loire, South Africa, Si­cilia, Aus­tria, Ore­gon) and some spir­its (Whiskies, Gin).

Bordeaux is one of the largest and one of the most renowned wine re­gions in the world. We be­lieve its rep­u­ta­tion not only runs through the names of some very fa­mous châteaux and ex­cep­tional wine­mak­ers but its wealth is also seen in less fa­mous Châteaux. This di­ver­sity is the amaz­ing rich­ness of Bordeaux ! In this mag­a­zine you will find pre­sen­ta­tions of some wines from Pomerol, La­lande-de-Pomerol, Fron­sac, Canon-Fron­sac, Cadil­lac Côtes-de-Bordeaux, Sauternes…

Ore­gon is one of my fa­vorite amer­i­can wine re­gions. This state has a great di­ver­sity of ter­roir which is un­for­tu­nately of­ten over­looked. There are a lot of dif­fer­ent ter­roirs, pos­si­bil­i­ties in the same re­gion that gain recog­ni­tion step by step. In this sec­tion you will find re­views pre­sent­ing not only wines and but also spir­its from all the state !

Provence… This re­gion has a great di­ver­sity of ter­roir which is un­for­tu­nately of­ten over­looked. Provence is of­ten know for rosé but this re­gion pro­duce also white and red! For this time I choose to in­tro­duce to you some red wines from Provence.

Bour­gogne white wines are world renowned. We make some of best white wines of the world in this re­gion. So how can we re­sist the temp­ta­tion to dis­cover, ex­plore and taste the in­cred­i­ble di­ver­sity of Bour­gogne white wines.

Si­cilia… this name is syn­ony­mous of great life­style, eva­sion, epi­cure­anism and of course wine! It’s one of the old­est places where mak­ing wine in the world

Aus­tria… It’s syn­ony­mous of great white wines. Some of best Ries­lings are from this coun­try. So how I could not re­sist the temp­ta­tion to go and to dis­cover the Wachau and Vi­enna re­gion.

Whiskies… what can I say about this great Spirit. It’s one of the old­est and most fa­mous spir­its in the world. It’s pos­si­ble to find a Whisky/Whiskey for each time, each oc­ca­sion, each taste of one’s life. To en­joy on the rocks, with a cigar, as an ap­per­i­tif, in a mix, as a di­ges­tif or to pair with a whole meal (yes we can !). In this mag­a­zine you will find some great Whiskies, Bour­bon, Scotch re­views...
