    Biographie

    Britannique, Jasper Morris, est titulaire du diplôme envié de Master of Wine, décerné à la suite d'un examen qui, avec 8 reçus par an, passe pour l'un des plus difficiles qui soient. Négociant pour le compte de la maison londonienne BBR (Berry Bross & Rudd), il s'est pris de passion pour les vins de Bourgogne, et s'est installé dans la région. Il explore depuis 1981 ses domaines et terroirs, ce qui lui a donné une expertise sans égale sur les vins, leur lieu de naissance et les hommes qui les font.

    Jasper Morris MW developed a reputation as a leading authority on Burgundy while running his own importing business, Morris & Verdin Ltd from 1981 to 2003, at which point he sold the company to Berry Bros. & Rudd. He continues to work for Berry Bros. as Burgundy buyer.

    Jasper has been a Master of Wine since 1985, was responsible for all the Burgundian entries in the Oxford Companion to Wine and contributes frequently to The World of Fine Wine Magazine, among other publications. He also lectures internationally on pinot noir in general and Burgundy in particular.

    Though a frequent visitor to the principal Pinot Noir growing countries of the world, Jasper now mainly divides his time between the UK and Burgundy. His reputation as a Burgundy expert was further enhanced in October 2010 with the publication of Inside Burgundy, a lifetime’s study of the vineyards and vignerons of the region, which has subsequently won the prestigious André Simon award for the best wine book of the year.
