Thierry Rautureau grew up on a farm in France's Loire Valley, then embarked on a working culinary tour of Europe and California. He landed at Rover's in Seattle in 1987, where he combined local produce with classical technique. Today he also runs Luc, a bistro named for his father. Choosing a wine to drink with the richness of Thierry Rautureau's wild salmon tournedos recipe and the sweetness of the caramelized turnips with Pinot Noir sauce suggest a riper, New World Pinot Noir in lieu of a Burgundy.
