Aperçu du document
Whether THE TASTING PANEL goes to the brand execs or the brands
call us, there is an abundance of news to report, from the latest
releases to behind-the-scenes experiences with some of the world’s
most influential importers, winemakers, distillers . . . well, you name it.
We may not have enough pages in each issue to devote as much
attention as we would like to each person whose path we cross, but
please note that if it’s in the publication, we deem it noteworthy
—Meridith May, Publisher & Executive Editor
Proficient in French
n late January, David Milligan, President of David
Milligan Selections, Inc., stopped by THE TASTING
PANEL’s offices to present a choice selection from
his extensive portfolio. As the former President of
Diageo Château & Estate Wines (then Seagram’s),
Milligan developed an intimate knowledge of the
French wine industry as well as close personal
relationships with producers across France—from
Burgundy to the Rhône, from the Loire to Bordeaux.
He created David Milligan Selections 15 years ago
and also serves as President of the U.S. division
of Joanne Bordeaux, the number-one exporter
of Bordeaux wines, representing more than 100
châteaux, including the 55 classified growths.
On this visit, Milligan concentrated on his nonBordeaux offerings, including two crisp, minerally
Sancerres from Fournier Père & Fils and a charming
old-vine Pouilly-Fuissé from Château Vitallis, as well
as the stunning single-vineyard Châteauneuf du
Pape “Les Combes d’Arnevel,” both blanc and rouge,
from Jérôme Quiot (see Meridith May’s review on
page 42). The Gigondas from the old and important
Château de Trignon (owned by Quiot) proved to be
an iconic expression of this terroir. On a lighter note,
Millligan also offers a charming proprietary unoaked
Chardonnay from the village of Chardonnay in
the Mâcon, appropriately called Chardonnay de
Chardonnay and bottled under screwcap. Our best
advice: When David Milligan offers you a glass of
wine, drink it!—David Gadd
