Debra Meiburg MW Meets the Winemaker 137: Bertrand Sourdais, Domaine de Pallus
Debra catches up with Bertrand Sourdais of Domaine de Pallus, located in the Loire Valley in France. They discuss the winery’s specific location in Chinon, a very small appellation of about 2,200ha in the North of France between Bordeaux and Paris, the strengths of the region and the “sweetness” of the climate. They discuss Bertrand’s other passion – music, with Debra asking how he came to be a “rock star” in an international band, and how his music and winemaking relate.
They discuss how a winemaker’s personality comes through a wine, and conclude with a detailed discussion on the various food matches for Chinon.
