We were delighted to welcome back Pascal Rossignol of Le Caveau, Kilkenny – www.lecaveau.ie
Pascal gave a fascinating talk and tutored wine tasting on wines from Burgundy, and the up-and-coming region of The South-West of France. Pascal is originally from near Gevrey-Chambertin, Burgundy, and his experience takes him from the vineyards of his native Burgundy, to being a Sommelier, to running one of the best independent wine merchant business in Ireland for the past 10 years. The students really enjoyed Pascal’s presentation on Burgundy and the South-West of France.
Le Caveau won the Bridgestone Guide Wine Merchant of the Year 2005, and in 2008, Le Caveau were awarded ‘Fine Wine Merchant of the Year 2008’ by The Sunday Business Post. The Bridgestone Guide writes ‘The selection of wines M. Rossignol imports and his extensive connections with wine growers in France means that the wine company actually has pretty much all the wines your life needs. The shop is the most charming space in which to browse, service is superb and delivery is fleet. It would be hard to better Le Caveau.
Our thanks to Pascal.
Update: Pascal has written a note about his visit to us here at the school. Read it here.
