Rhone: Patrick LeSec Selections

Patrick Lesec has recently been recognized as one of Robert Parker's Wine Personalities of the Year (The Wine Advocate, Issue 144, Dec. 31, 2002). "A wine broker who has become heavily involved in winemaking, Lesec fashions personal cuvées of top-notch wines in addition to representing some cutting edge producers. He continues to build an impressive portfolio of high quality wines made as naturally as possible from old vines and low yields. He produces wines from Burgundy, Languedoc-Roussillon and the Rhône Valley. It is the latter area (particularly the southern Rhône) where his strengths are most obvious."

Since 1993, Patrick Lesec Selections has established a well deserved reputation as a source of first class, estate-bottled wines from Burgundy, the northern and southern Rhône, Languedoc-Roussillon, the Loire and Alsace. But as a wine broker, negociant, wine consultant, master of élevage and winemaker in his own right, Patrick Lesec has a somewhat unique position in the French wine universe.
