Gerard Basset calms first date wine nerves



First dates are never easy, especially with the additional worry of picking the right wine. But never fear, Gerard Basset OBE, MW, is here to help.

In a new video entitled “First Dates”, Gerard is seen matching different French wines to people’s styles and personalities, ranging from the glamorous and chic through to a cooler and more laid back vibe.

Gerard Basset, OBE, MW, said: “We are always striving to be creative. I’ve already matched French wine styles to film stars, designers and fashion trends, but I believe this is the first time I’m potentially providing a love match.”

This is the latest in a series of videos from the French Wines with Style campaign which seeks to present French wines in an accessible way by using different style descriptions to help demystify the diversity France has to offer.
