Required comprare kamagra senza ricetta dictionary drugs.
Snapshot 2009-11-19 14-12-09Denis Dubourdieu is all at once a scientist, a vineyard owner and a wine maker. Educated as an agro-scientist, an Oenology Professor at the university of Bordeaux since 1987, he has concentrated his research studies on yeasts, aromas and colloids. He is considered as one of the top specialist in the winemaking process (and often referred to as the “godfather” of white Bordeaux wines) and the ageing of white wines. Nevertheless the work of his team has also greatly contributed to deepening our knowledge of red wines aromas. Denis Dubourdieu attends to the family vineyards as a vine grower, a wine maker and is a consultant to numerous wine producers in France and abroad.
Denis Dubourdieu and his wife Florence both come from old families of wine growers of the Bordeaux region. Assisted by their son, Fabrice, Engineer in Oenology, they produce wine from several estates totaling 120 hectares, in the Sauternes, Graves and Premières Côtes de Bordeaux regions. The vineyards are run by 2 companies: Pierre & Denis Dubourdieu EARL (Doisy-Daëne, Cantegril & Haura) and Denis & Florence Dubourdieu EARL (Reynon and Floridène). In the latter part of 2006, after completing graduate studies in business and marketing, Jean-Jacques, Denis’ youngest son, joined the family vineyard. In charge of purchasing and marketing, he is also responsible for promoting the Dubourdieu brand name across the French and American markets. During the wine-making process, he oversees the harvest at Doisy-Daëne and Cantegril.
