The founder of Paris Wine Company, Josh Adler, got his start in the wine business guiding bike tours in the wine regions of France and working in wine retail in San Francisco for a few years. He ran the restaurant and retail wine program for an emerging American Chef in Paris but realized that his benefit to the world of wine was not table-side service, but his knowledge of the American wine market married with his knowledge of French culture and French wine producers. He founded a French wine exportation brokerage where he connected and fostered relationships between French producers and American distributors. Later Josh applied all his connections and knowledge to producing his own wines that represent the regions they come from at prices suitable for daily drinking. Taking samples of wine from certified sustainably grown vineyards from throughout the entire Loire Valley, each year the Paris Wine Company selects blends that best represent a Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc, a region which includes Sancerre. We have tried a number of times in the past, without luck, to have the Deux Moulin Sauvignon Blanc in Kompas Wine Club, so we are very happy to share arguably the highest quality-to-price ratio wine in the market today. What we like about this wine is that it is not fruit driven. There is fruit, sure, but it is not the most prominent aspect of the wine. The minerality, florality and herbal notes are at least as prominent–without being weird. This is a wine that is both an accompanist and a soloist; food-friendly but delicious all on its own, too. Unfortunately, and unknown to us while we were selecting this wine for Kompas club and writing it up, Josh was in the final stages of his battle with cancer and passed away. RIP Josh.
