100 point Winemaker Jean Hoefliger
While Jean Hoefliger has a delightfully ribald sense of humor and razor-sharp wit, he is dead serious when it comes to oenology. His latest project is called “Theorize,” referring to Jean’s constant exploration of winemaking technique and his Swiss training that brought him such success at Château Lynch-Bages, Château Carbonnieux, and Newton here in the valley, not to mention countless consulting projects (and numerous 100-Point Wines) working with the esteemed Michel Rolland.
