An Illustration of Gastronomic Impressionism dedicated to wine, by the Impressionism of painting.
Everyone knows the impressionism of painting. Well, I wondered if Impressionism could be gastronomic and especially dedicated to wine. And if we could imagine a bridge between these two impressionisms...
This is how the concept of "Vinpressionnisme" was born: how to visually express the organoleptic qualities of wine. Pictorial impressionism illustrates winemaker impressionism we might say.
When I worked as a wine merchant in Paris, we assigned color codes to wines with a green dot for white and brown for red.
So I had inspirations to push the principle further with complex visual compositions - major impressionist art works - to illustrate wine profiles according to my vision and my taste.
Aujourd’hui, je ne propose pas seulement des vins de qualité illustrés par des peintures fascinantes, mais aussi une certaine conception du lien qui les relie. »
