Tour de France

After breakfast we took DD up to Remy to meet sommelier Christopher. She was eager to take him up on his offer to give her a tour of the wine cellar and offer her a glimpse into the profession. Christopher greeted us warmly and we introduced DD. He started by showing her the expensive vintage wines in the front hall case that we had seen the other night. Then he proceeded to take us to the back side of the case where there were different bottles including several signed by John Lasseter with special labels depicting some of the Pixar movies.

Through his thick French accent Christopher spent about 20 minutes showing DD all the different types of wine storage and explaining all the different types of glasses they use in Remy. Apparently there are like 12 to 14 different shapes and sizes of wine glasses for all the different types of wines and each type needs its perfect shape glass to best bring out its flavors. He also described his basic daily duties as a sommelier in Remy and patiently answered DD's few questions.

DD left feeling a little overwhelmed at how much preparation and knowledge is required for the job, but she enjoyed seeing Remy and learning a little more about what a sommelier does. Thank you Christopher!
