Young Burgundian Vignerons Visit World of Pinot Noir 2011


Rusty Gaffney and Jay Selman have a casual and intimate conversation with Alexandrine Roy and Thomas Bouley, participants in the “Young Turks of Burgundy” tasting at the World of Pinot Noir. We were impressed by their charm and willingness to share their insights into the role of young vignerons in Burgundy today and their impressions of American Pinot Noir.

    That was a great listen. And, for the record, the French sounded just fine.

    Nice audio! I like Alexandrine’s holistic approach to the growing of the grapes and the understanding of what it really takes – very impressed.

    Yes, the butchered French needs excusing. You could try learning to pronounce the French/Italian/German words and names phonetically, before air—it isn’t that difficult, since your guests were right there next to you!
