A souvenir of your strongest emotion:
The strongest emotions I felt during my life are certainly related to my family. Certainly my daughters’ birth has been one of the significant momentdof my life. . Admittedly though, my life path has not been a typical one, as a young man I was quite explosive, it has taken years and experience to allow me to become a more thoughtful person, a deeper man…. But at the origin of all my strongest emotions is that first meeting with my now wife Lole – without her I would have none of the subsequent moments which have meant so much to me
The person you admire most:
From an early age I have always had a passion for airplanes, and I always dreamed of being able to pilot one. So because of this, my heroes were the Wright brothers, and especially the pilot Charles Lindberg, who completed of the first ever solo flight across the Atlantic in 1927 with the plane Spirit of Saint-Louis.
Your ultimate dream meal
A good bottle, a baked homemade bread, a slice of salami and a piece of mountain cheese; all seasoned only with people I love. A simple meal, one that that would fill both my stomach as well as my heart.
With whom would you share your dream dinner?
For the charisma and the ability to have influenced the world, I'd get to my table Napoleon Bonaparte. But with the idea of sharing a wonderful Krug…I definitely associate this with the image of Marilyn Monroe for its all her lively sensuality and sweetness; and perhaps also because it she is some kind of dream of all of us.
What makes you a Krug Lover
The love I feel for the history of this Maison and the desire to be unique.
Your favourite Krug food pairing
One night we had a wonderful party and we have combined a typical dish from Milan, the famous Cassoeula, composed of pork and cabbage, with a different set of disgorgement of Krug Grande Cuvée. The link that was formed was an apotheosis for the taste buds. Then I would combine Krug with pizza, as well as with the beluga caviar or king salmon or… simply combining it with our desire to drink something exceptional.
