About Bettane + Desseauve

Every year, Michel Bettane and Thierry Desseauve and their expert team taste more than 50,000 wines. Michel Bettane is a leading French wine critic, who for 20 years up until 2004 was a writer for the French consumer wine publication La Revue du vin de France. Following the acquisition of La Revue du vin de France by Marie-Claire and the media group Lagardère, Bettane and his colleague Thierry Desseauve left the publication and launched their own series of wine guides, Le Classement des Meilleurs Vins de France. Bettane also appears in publications such as Le Monde, Decanter and The World of Fine Wine.
