  1. My opinion about wine

    la cave de l'insolite à Paris

     Welcome to this site. My name is Jean-Charles Botte ex sommelier of La Méditerranée (restaurant in Paris)and sommelier Xich-Lô

    I am a wine writer specializing in natural wines (organic farming and a winemaking with natural yeast and just a little  sulfur).
    In France, there are 30,000 independent estates, and only 2,300 growers in organic farming for the year 2010.


     A journalist called me : the natural wine advocate and Crazy sommelier. 

    Jean-Charles Botte by Lara



     I am 47 years, I weigh 77 kg for 1m87. I drink 2 glasses of natural wine per day and I'm against alcoholism. When I drink  chemical wine, I have a headache and stomachache. I am very sensitive with chemicals inclued in the wine

    I have interesting ideas and convictions about wine. My first book will be downloadable in a month:  tasting lessons with a organic sommelier (translated by Geoffrey Finch)

    Happy reading
