Top 10 influential wine consultants

10th December, 2013 by Gabriel Stone

6. Denis Dubourdieu

Denis DubourdieuClients: Cheval Blanc, Yquem, Bodegas Chivite in Spain, 4G Wines in South Africa.

If it’s your white wines that are in need of attention, then look no further than Denis Dubourdieu, Professor of Oenology at the University of Bordeaux. His own family has owned Sauternes property Doisy Daëne since 1924 and Dubourdieu’s expertise both as an academic and bona fide vigneron make him hot property for wineries looking to improve quality.

In his quest for age-worthy white wines, Dubourdieu and his research team have dedicated themselves to identifying and tackling the issues that surround premature oxidation. From vineyard health through to pressing, fermentation, lees stirring and bottling, Dubourdieu’s clients can take advantage of his theories about how to create white wines with longevity to match their quality. That said, fans of traditional old white wines such as Rioja’s Lopez de Heredia Viña Gravonia or Marqués de Murrieta might find his stance a shade too purist.

    Amazingly, you left out David Ramey who Robert Parker claimed as one of the best in our industry!

  2. Greg Gillooly says:

    I’ve always maintained that there are only two stories to tell in all of fine wine promotion: the ” hallowed ground” story and the “magic chef” story. Now the “magic chefs” come to the “hallowed ground” where ever it may be. What a wonderful world this is!
