Jean-Pierre has written the BIVB’s tasting notes for all vintages from 1998 and he is frequently asked to speak on Burgundy wine at conferences and seminars across the world. Today, he is a board member of Vitagora-Vigne & Vin, wine editor of Bourgogne Magazine and sits on the expert panel that advises the European Gustatory Sciences Centre. He has also been asked by television channel France 3 Bourgogne to present a weekly programme on Burgundy vine and wine. He also organises tailor-made, personal visits to Burgundy. Jean-Pierre's talent as a wine taster has long been established. Throughout the years he has formed a vast network of relationships, both personal and professional in the region's wine industry, which makes him a reference when it comes to Burgundy.
