Wines To Find, Ep 72: French Wine Importer Talks Wine and Frost
Show Notes

Guest: Paul Doroussay of Pierre Clos Imports. Wines tasted: Domaine Coteaux des Margot 2019 Chardonnay and 2018 Gamay.

Michelle and Sandy are joined by Paul Doroussay of Pierre Clos Imports. Paul grew up in Burgundy, France,  farming and making wine on his family vineyard, Domaine Coteaux des Margots, located in Mâcon , which is in the southern most area of Burgundy, near Beaujolais. The Mâconnais region of France is best known as a great value area for white wines. Being in Burgundy, those white wines are mostly made from Chardonnay varietals.
It was always the family plan that he take over the vineyard one day. As part of that plan,  he traveled to the U.S. after finishing wine school for an internship. While in the U.S. he met his future wife and that changed all those plans!

Now, he is an importer of French wines, living happily in California wine country. A treat for WTF listeners, this is an insider's perspective of winemaking from two of the world's most renowned wine growing  regions.

As they taste two of his family's wines, a Chardonnay and a Gamay, Paul shares first-hand accounts of the recent freeze in France, how that impacted not only his family's vineyard but so many across France, the difficulty in being a small producer anywhere in the world and the differences between the U.S. and French winemaking industries.
