Olivier Poussier

The ace of Greek assyrtikos, in magnum!

At the cellar Iosif, on the island of Paros

During  sunny holidays  in the archipelago of the Cyclades, in Greece, a local refreshment is essential. Planted at 400m altitude on the island of Tinos, between Andros and Mykonos, this assyrtiko is a pure miracle. Like crystal at times, salty and delicately peppery this wine reveals perfectly its granitic terroir in a hyper concentrated energy. This magnum found  in Naoussa, on the island of Paros, will not be too much!

Gerard Margeon

He leads 324 sommeliers

Orchestrating  the world’s most extensive sommelier brigade, that of Alain Ducasse’s establishments – 324 sommeliers, including 44 sommelier chefs – forces him to frequent assiduously  the airports. His app Air France reveals that in the past four years, he has visited 31 times Tokyo, 27 times the United States, 12 times Hong Kong … for a total of 1 535 000 km! Born in the Hospices de Beaune in 1961, he keeps time to go to the Cyclades, in Tinos, where he produces a wine vinified and distributed in France by Stéphane Derenoncourt, and to collaborate with Grandes Serres, a trading house installed in Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
