Saint Jean du Barroux - Nouveau Master from South Rhône
"I developed my love for wine from my family, thanks mainly to the passion of my parents and their background with the wine trade (agricultural engineer, oenologist, laboratory research manager, wine retailer and bottling technician).
Having been trained as an oenologist... tasting, cellar and vineyard operations are part of my daily life. As a member of wine-tasting clubs, I have also learnt to develop my appreciation for a variety of wines. Pierre Bise, Devès, Cazes, Beaucastel, La Janasse.....all of these prestigious wineries enriched my professional career, enabling me to discover the secrets of a great wine.
Research of the land and superb quality without compromise are my goals. Creating wine with a natural approach is my primary principle. Passion, sincerity, respect and sharing are my true values. The wine of Saint Jean du Barroux reflects my philosophy."
