Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW
Editor-in-Chief and Reviewer
Born and raised in rural Maine, USA, Lisa graduated from Colby College, ME, with degrees in English Literature and Performing Arts. Her wine career began by happenstance when, living as a struggling playwright in London after college, she was offered a job as the manager of a wine bar. Upon acquiring the position, she promptly enrolled for classes at the WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) and continued her studies with them until achieving the institution’s highest accreditation level: Diploma. Lisa progressed through wine sales and marketing roles in the UK wine trade throughout the ‘90s and early noughties before moving to Tokyo in 2002, where she worked as a wine buyer for one of Japan's top fine wine importers and a wine educator at Tokyo's Academie du Vin. In 2008, Lisa moved to Singapore and began writing a column for Robert Parker’s website, eRobertParker.com. Later that year she achieved her Master of Wine (MW) qualification and the Madame Bollinger Medal for excellence in wine tasting. In 2013, she became the Editor-in-Chief for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate and RobertParker.com. She is also the publication’s critic for the wines of Australia, New Zealand, Sonoma County and Oregon. In 2015, Lisa’s first book, Taste Like a Wine Critic: A Guide to Understanding Wine Quality, was published. Recently, she relocated to Napa, California, to set up the new office for The Wine Advocate. She now lives in Napa with her British husband, two young daughters, their Border Collie and three sheep.

Description


Jean-Pierre Moueix was a legendary figure that towered over the Right Bank and today his son Christian and grandson Edouard Moueix continue as guardians of some of the most revered château in Bordeaux. This tasting will examine three exemplary estates, Belair-Monange in Saint Emilion, La Fleur-Petrus and Trotanoy in Pomerol, three of the finest terroirs on the Right Bank. Attendees will have the opportunity to compare each one from some of the finest vintages of the last 20 years: 2009, 2010 and a preview of 2015. We will be joined by Christian Moueix and Tod Mostero  Winemaker, Dominus Estates to offer insights as well as those from Bordeaux reviewer for the Wine Advocate, Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW.
