Associate Director | Private Clients
The drinks trade has always been my blood; on my father’s side my great, great, great, great grandfather established McMullen’s Brewery in Hertfordshire in 1827, and on my mother’s side, my great grandfather founded The Glenlivet whisky distillery on Speyside.
I joined the Goedhuis team in 2010, shortly after working in the vineyards of Chateau Bauduc, owned by the ever-enthusiastic Gavin Quinney. My present role includes advising clients from the UK and abroad on how to create and manage perfect cellars for both drinking and investment.
At Goedhuis we love Burgundy but I specialise in the great wines of Bordeaux and particularly enjoy visiting the region. I adore mature Pauillac and the best St Emilion & Pomerols; at the moment I have a passion for 1998 Cheval Blanc… but that may change next year! I also have an ever-increasing addiction in the wines of Burgundy. My first En Primeur campaign at Goedhuis was 2010 Burgundy which is one of the greatest modern day vintages. Favourite growers include Domaine Fourrier, Denis Mortet, Benjamin Leroux, Hudelot-Noëllat, Domaine Dujac, Emmanuel Rouget, Sylvain Cathiard & Armand Rousseau.
Outside of work, my passions include travel, family time and watching all sports, particularly Football (Spurs). And, back in 2011, I defeated a giant of a man to win the Boodles Boxing Ball.
