学生时代研习古典音乐的贝丹曾怀揣着成为乐团指挥的梦想。1977年在大学里教授古希腊语和古拉丁语时,贝丹决定注册巴黎葡萄酒学院的品鉴课程,当时在学院任教的都是知识渊博而且对葡萄酒充满热诚的业内大师如Steven Spurrier,Michel Dovaz等。凭着超常的天赋和惊人的记忆力,贝丹一年后便在院长的要求下从学生转成了讲师。 80年代初,贝丹应出版人之邀开始担任《葡萄酒评论杂志》(RVF)的主编,数年后遇到了他眼中最有天赋的年轻葡萄酒记者切里•德梭。二人首次相遇在勃艮第慈济院拍卖期间,同一个晚上同一家酒吧观看同一场足球赛,从足球聊到到葡萄酒,二人多年亦师亦友的合作自那天起 从未间断。 1995年贝丹和德梭合著出版了第一版 «贝丹德梭法国葡萄酒年鉴»,这本年鉴详细收录了法国各个产区最优质的酒庄,被酿酒人和爱好者视为最有影响力的葡萄酒评论书籍,其 英文版和日文版经已数次重版,中文版也已经在中国面世。 如今的贝丹和德梭作为法国最有影响力的酒评家,受到各大酒庄和消费者的敬重,但他们却始终保持着低调的作风,从不以葡萄酒评论界的“大腕”自居。他们认为,酒评家应该在酒庄和消费者之间起到桥梁的作用,而不是引导消费者去喜欢某种特定的口味。“每个人都有自己喜欢的口味,不管哪个葡萄酒产区或哪个年份都 能产出让人拍案叫绝的佳酿,酒评家每年的工作就是把酿酒人的成功之作都如实地记录下来,至于买哪一款则由消费者自己决定。”

 

While teaching ancient Greek and Latin to university students back in 1977, Michel Bettane enrolled wine courses at the « Academie du Vin » in Paris for his own pleasure. With exceptional tasting ability and memory, Michel quickly ranked amongst the best students of his group and was offered by wine experts Steven Spurrier and Michel Dovaz to act as a teacher amongst his own peers at the same academy a year later. In the early 1980s, Michel began his journalistic career as Chief Editor at La Revue du vin de France, where he would meet several years later Thierry Desseauve during one of the famous auctions held at the Hospices de Beaune. Work relationship led to friendship, and collaboration led to association yielding to the publication of the first edition of «Le Classement des Vins de France par Bettane et Desseauve» in 1995. Immediate acclaim was received for this publication from both winemakers and consumers alike whom were long hoping for a new methodology in wine criticism. Michel Bettane is today widely considered as one of the World’s most talented wine taster, and as a living encyclopedia filled with pages of human interactions with the winemakers composing the complex patchwork of France’s vine growing regions…

Michel Bettane 米歇尔•贝丹

切里•德梭很早就意识到他生平的两大爱好—传媒与葡萄酒。高中时代,他在家乡诺曼底的鲁昂市创立过一份摇滚音乐杂志《Rock》,和为数不多的团 队成员们一道齐心协力写文章,卖广告,寻找印刷商,甚至每天在演唱会和学校门口兜售杂志! 与此同时,德梭频频光顾父亲的酒窖,每次都从一箱箱波尔多、勃艮第或罗纳河谷的名庄佳酿中“借”出一瓶两瓶来,可以说,在法国医学界颇为有名的父亲无 意中或无奈中成了他的葡萄酒启蒙老师。 在巴黎完成经济与新闻学学业后,德梭前往波尔多拜访了多家酒庄,而正是在滴金堡Château d’Yquem,与这款传奇葡萄酒的酿酒师们面对面交流下来,他发现葡萄酒的世界里竟然藏有那么多的人文、历史、技术当然还有味觉上的奥秘,就算倾其一生 也难以将它们全部揭晓。就在那天,他决定成为一名专业葡萄酒记者,只有这样才能够同时满足他的两大爱好! 1989年,在贝丹的力邀下,他正式担任《法国葡萄酒评论》的执行编辑。在他担任执行主编的15年期间,杂志奇迹般地起死回生,订阅量增加了三倍,并把那一代当时默默无名但今天已是耀眼明星的酿酒师们推向了全世界。 1995年,德梭和贝丹共同出版了《贝丹德梭法国葡萄酒年鉴》),从此二人成为法国葡萄酒界最有影响力的专家组合,更多的书籍和每年更新出版的年鉴陆续问世。 1998年,他因《Le Livre du Vin》这本书被授予葡萄酒届最重要的文学奖Edmond de Rothschild奖。 2005年,他与贝丹共同创立了贝丹德梭独立葡萄酒资讯机构,在法国、英国、意大利与中国的众多刊物上,向专业人士和葡萄酒爱好者提供关于法国葡萄 酒最新消息和最有深度的报道。 他们每年还在世界最富盛名的景点,如巴黎卢浮宫、伦敦沙驰现代艺术博物馆、香港会展中心,不久后还会在上海苏宁宝丽嘉酒店举办贝丹德梭Grand Tasting精品酒展,把法国乃至欧洲最棒的葡萄酒和它们的酿酒人带到中国来。

From an early age, Thierry Desseauve developed two passions: Medias and wine… Creator of a rock magazine during his high school times in Rouen, Thierry and his friends rapidly developed an appreciation for articles writing, advertisements selling techniques, and publication and distribution options for their “rocking” paper to be sold to their fellow students at the school doors or in concert halls… Aside from a vivid interest in musical medias, Thierry inherited a particular interest for wine from his father and forged his first tasting experiences while “borrowing” some of his dad’s finest bottles in the family cellar.
Freshly graduated from National School of Journalism, Thierry decided to combine his two passions and became Executive Editor of La Revue du vin de France in 1989. With triple digits increase of distribution within 15 years, the magazine became the reference for readers seeking both for celebrated wine estate names as well as unknown and freshly discovered wine gems. Awarded with the “Edmond de Rothschild” prize in 1998 for his “Le Livre du Vin”, Thierry Desseauve partnered with Michel Bettane in 1995 to launch the first edition of their «Le Classement des Vins de France par Bettane et Desseauve». This new wine publication aiming to inform wine lovers and professionals via very precise rating and ranking of over 50.000 French wines then became, and remains today, the reference amongst yearly French wine guides…
