“Your best wines are never the consequence of your genius” Michel interviewed by WineSearcher

“Your best wines are never the consequence of your genius,” says Michel Chapoutier in an interview with WineSearcher.com, “but the consequence of hazard [chance].”

“You live your life chasing the luck you had when you made some amazing wines,” says Michel. “You speak to old winemakers and ask them: ‘What is the best wine you ever made?’ They will tell you and then if you ask: ‘Why didn’t you make it again?’ they say there was some climatological reason but nothing different in the winery.”
