Fantastic video. The dude from Mazel kept referring to a Gerard and a Christophe, two winemakers from the Ardeche. Do you know who they are? My French is more than a little rusty, and I couldn't make the names out. In that vein, any other recommendations from the Ardeche? I feel these are my people and would be happy to support them.



Hello John, Are you sure Gerald from Le Mazel was referring to Gerard? Gerald Oustric. And I actually don't remember a Christophe. Will try to relisten. But from the Ardeche, I like le Souteronne from Hervé Souhaut. Certainly Andrea Calek. I'll try to think of some more.

Sorry, Alice. It was Andrea who was talking -- not Gerald. I take it that he was referring to Gerald Oustric and Christophe Comte of Domaine des Vignerons. Thanks again, I love Souhaut and Calek and I'm open to more recommendations, should they occur to you.

I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
