Q&A with Philippe Andre

Q&A with Philippe Andre

Philippe Andre, Oceanique, Chicago 

Which classic grape varietal is the most underrated?
Chardonnay, it’s absolutely perfect as it won’t stain my beard!

What kind of flavors inspire you most? 
I look for notes of bright citrus, stone fruit and a kiss of brioche in most of what I drink. Also orchard fruits like apple and pears that show up in wines that have some age on them give of this amazingly rustic essence like a 20yr+ Savennières.  Everything has to be in balance and not too overdone or I get weirded out.

Choose a drink to match with pork – and why? 
Vintage Champagne of course! Bright complex flavors along with the tiniest of bubbles makes for a perfect pairing. It powers through the richness that pork brings to the table while making you want another bite!
