Jacques Boissenot (1938 – 2014) and son Eric consult for 95% of the Grand Crus classes from the Bordeaux region of France.
Xavier and Ricardo were able to pull the renowned blender and “Winemaker of the Decade” off the precipice of retirement into a consulting role with Maquis.
Jacques and Eric Boissenot has blended the components in such a way as to give Maquis wines more elegance by filling the mid palate and by achieving a good balance between freshness and suppleness. They have been an invaluable resource for Maquis by adjusting the picking dates and managing the extraction of tannins in a softer manner during the fermentation process.
The Boissenots have helped Maquis find the combination of power, elegance and finesse that is common to the world’s best wines.
