Winemaker Maurice Robert
Sometimes our daydreams take us backward in time, too. To 1982, for instance, and our first sip of Maurice Robert’s stunning blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon at Restaurant Taillevent, Jean-Claude Vrinat’s 3-star restaurant in Paris. The warm goat cheese, the toasted walnuts—the memory of the pairing has somehow refused to yield to the passage of 37 years now. A great wine will do that to you.
