Aymeric de Clouet
Aymeric de Clouet was appointed the Paris Court of Appeal's sole wine expert in 2011 and since then has been working with the high courts on intentional cases of wine fraud. Because of his intricate knowledge and highly experienced palate of French wines, in a legal dispute, the judge relies on his expert opinion on a bottle, case or veracity of the appellation.
De Clouet also oversees more than 30 wine auctions per year as an independent expert, guaranteeing the authenticity of wines and ensuring that those being presented are described as accurately as possible. His work at private auctions has included the cellars of former President Francois Mitterrand, Alain Delon and La Tour d'Argent.
In 2017, de Clouet was Knighted in the order of Agricultural Merit by the Ministry of Agriculture.
