Bravo Pierre !

Best Wine Newcomer 2007:

Pierre Paillot, sommelier, Mint Restaurant, Dublin There has been considerable change in the Irish hotel and restaurant trade over the last year.The high point being the delightful makeover of Patrick Guilbaud’s restaurant at theMerrion; the low point being the hugely disappointing Shelbourne revamp.Through all the noise and heat, quality has, as ever, risen to the top. L’Ecrivain’s Martina Delaney and Sheen Falls’s Damien Trinckquel take the top sommelier spots (Delaney for the third year in a row). But if these wine winners glance over their shoulder they will see a rising star in Rhone-trained Frenchman Pierre Paillot, whose wine list at Mint in Ranelagh is a vinous and aesthetic masterpiece.
