Goodbye Alex…


Alexandre Brault 2020I’m very sorry to hear that we lost a good wine friend.

Yesterday, Alex Brault left us tragically early.

For a number of years, he was an integral part of Alex Gambal’s (yes, two Alexes!) operation in Beaune. When Gambal decided his time was up in Burgundy, Alex Brault entertained the idea of making a bid but he soon realised that he had no chance when the Boisset company became the prime suitor.

Alex was undaunted and set up his own operation in Meursault – and he was making some lovely wines.

Only a few hours before I got the news, I’d put him on my list of producers I’d like to visit over the next weeks…

He was one of the good guys…

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

There is one response to “Goodbye Alex…”
