Tips from the great winemakers-4 Dominique Demarville


Dominique Demarville
Chef de cave at Champagne house Veuve Clicquot

For people who have just started to learn about wine, the most important thing is to be curious, and don’t hesitate to ask questions.

My parents were not in the wine business, and I didn’t work in the wine industry at the beginning. What drives me to learn more about wine throughout my life is curiosity. I was always curious about what happened during the vilification process, and what makes a wine tastes like this.

Curiosity helps to open up your mind. If you are not curious about wine, you will never become passionate about studying it.

Also you don’t need to follow what other people feel about a wine. It is important to be confident about your own taste, your own senses, and your intuition.
