Sommelier Cyril Frechier of Campagne - Biography

Seattle, WA

November 2008

The breakdown of Frechier’s 450-label list at Campagne is a reflection of Chef Daisley Gordon’s food: 80% French and 20% of the region. Frechier was at Rover's for 16 years, and during that time he worked with wines from all over the planet. But Campagne is very French, so Frechier has returned to his roots, taking the opportunity to pair French wines – often lesser-known ones. Frechier says Washington State is a fantastic wine region, but the wines are more opulent and bombastic. He chose dishes for our tasting that worked best with French wines – and took the opportunity to show off France’s diversity while he was at it.
