Having tasted over 50,000 wines throughout his career, he is a connoisseur of DRC and has had a close working relationship with the owners since 1983. These vintages have been carefully selected by him to showcase the combined power and seduction of the domaine, which is the essence of Burgundy. Peter has led numerous landmark tastings throughout his prestigious career in Paris, London, Stockholm, Tokyo and Kyoto. This will be his first landmark tasting in the United States.
