He deeply understands the life cycles and personalities of 4,000 different plants, which he harvests in the famous wine country of Chateau-Chalon, France, and around the world. He gathers these rare herbs to enliven the dishes of Michelin chefs in France. He also distills the herbs to make the world’s finest spirits… all without ever tasting a drop.
