Jeannie Cho Lee MW replaces Jasper Morris MW at Sotheby’s

After three years on the Sotheby’s Wine Team, Jeannie Cho Lee MW will replace Jasper Morris MW as a consultant for the annual wine auction.

Morris, who has been a Master of Wine since 1985, joined the team after it partnered with Hospices de Beaune and spent three harvests with Sotheby’s. His vast knowledge of Burgundy has helped support the allocation of wines for the auction. Morris has chosen to step away from this role to focus on his growing platform ‘Inside Burgundy’, a website dedicated to Burgundian wines.

Stepping into the role is Jeannie Cho Lee MW, another acclaimed and experienced Master of Wine who in 2008 became the first person based in Asia to earn the MW title. Lee’s experience includes being a wine judge, critic, editor, television host and author of three award-winning books: Asian Palate, Mastering Wine and The 100 Burgundy.

In her new role, Jeannie will oversee the wine selection for Sotheby’s annual auction, as well as host tastings for the Hospices de Beaune.
