Sarment Launch Fine Wine Services For Yacht Owners

By B. Roberts

During the 2010 Monaco Yacht Show, the leading fine wine advisory service, Sarment, launched a specialised high-end service dedicated to owners of superyachts and yacht manufacturers.

Sarment Yacht Services offers a high-end comprehensive wine management service specifically tailored to luxury yacht owners. Bringing together some of the industry’s finest award-winning sommeliers from the world’s top restaurants, Sarment will provide yacht owners with unparalleled fine wine expertise, impartial buying advice, exclusive access to the world of fine wine and a whole range of exceptional services, including yacht cellar planning and management for new-builds.

Founder of Sarment Yacht Services, Bertrand Faure Beaulieu said, “For no good reasons there seems to be a breakdown in service and value when it comes to the enjoyment of fine wines aboard superyachts.” Bertrand continued “The ultimate in fine wine service will now also be available for the ultimate superyachts.”

Sarment Yacht Services includes the sourcing and delivery of the world’s finest and rarest wines in perfect condition; offering the ideal wine storage offshore and onboard with a seamless transition from a yacht owner’s cellar and their wine onboard.

Master Sommelier and UK Sommelier of the Year, Christopher Delalonde, added, “Younger wines are better suited to yachts: champagne and white wines do not have the same issue as reds. The slight rocking of the yacht will tend to make the oldest wines evolve faster – so those fine sediments that we decant out at home or in a restaurant are shaken back in the composition.”

Providing private Sarment sommelier’s, yacht owners will be consulted on buying the finest wines to fit their unique tastes and specifications, how to enjoy it and the finer points of yacht wine management.
