Every Friday TheChampagneSommelier will ask 5 questions about 5 coeur de bouteilles to friends and Champagne lovers from near and far. This Week we took a bubbly chat with our champagne loving friend Nicolas de Rouyn from France. Merci Nicolas !
Nicolas de Rouyn
My name is Nicolas de Rouyn. I am French, I have this blog called BonVivant and I am a wine writer and a wine lover. I am living in Paris and works as directeur de la Rédaction at Bettane+Desseauve.I pretend not to have a favorite wine or appellation and I value curiosity and discoveries. My favorite wine magazine is EnMagnum, the quarterly mag I created with Thierry Desseauve and Michel Bettane in 2015 😉
