A Yanks Mantra: Quality, Not Pedigree
JEFFREY DAVIES IS NOT your typical Bordeaux négociant, or wine broker. An American who spent his junior year in college at the University of Bordeaux more than 30 years ago, Davies returned to France after graduation to study at the Institute of Oenology, started writing for wine publications, and eventually launched his own wholesaling business, Signature Selections. J. Davies represents a new breed of broker who realizes quality, not historic classification or pedigree, is most important. He works with small producers who believe in hand-harvesting and keeping quality high through yields. Below is just a small sampling fo his wines.
