Michel-Jack Chasseuil, avid wine connoisseur and owner of the world’s more prestigious wine collection.
In 2018, I attended Thierry Forbois’s Way of wine ritual for the first time. At the age of 77, nothing could have prepared me for what I was going to experience during this evening. I never imagined that drinking a glass of wine could become a sensual and aesthetic experience of such depth. One must really have to live this unparalleled moment to feel the intense emotions it awakens in you.
The Way of wine ritual is a living art without precedent in the world. Privileged I feel to have experienced this moment of grace in my lifetime. I kind of feel like if I was a guest attending one the first Tea Ceremonies hundreds of years ago. Is it unusual to witness the emergence of an art form? At the risk of sounding pretentious, I’d hazard that in the history of human achievements, it’s rare.
