“I am fascinated by the way the myriad of factors affecting each vintage are expressed in wine. These can be environmental, influenced by trends at the time, or speak of the particular nuances and preferences of the winemaker. For this reason, the overarching theme of my top picks is the opportunity to taste multiple vintages of some iconic wines, preferably surrounded by the stories of their origin.”
