Peppercorn David

The British wine writer and wine importer David Peppercorn M.W. (*1931) gained a reputation as a Bordeaux specialist from the late 1950s onwards through many tasting notes. The well-known US wine writer Frank J. Prial called Peppercorn "one of England's leading authorities on Bordeaux". Peppercorn is married to wine writer Serena Sutcliffe M.W., who, like him, holds the coveted title of Masters of Wine. They were the first MW couple, she only the second MW wife. Peppercorn authored the books Bordeaux, The Wines of Bordeaux, The Simon & Schuster Pocket Guide to the Wines of Bordeaux, Mouton-Rothschild 1945, The Wine To End All Wars and Great Vineyards and Winemakers. He was awarded the Order Chevalier dans l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture.
