Robert M. Parker, Jr.'s
THE WINE ADVOCATE,
"Fran Kysela, unlike most Americans, was born into a family that
consumed and appreciated fine wine. One of the youngest specialty importers, Kysela began his career as the national sales manager for the import arm of
Kermit Lynch's sprawling wine business. Subsequently, he worked briefly for
another high quality importer, Weygandt-Metzler in Unionville, Pennsylvania.
Inevitably, Kysela founded his own firm, dedicated to discovering high quality
top estates in France and Italy [and Portugal].
Kysela's offerings all tend to be extremely pure, ripe, fruity wines...in short, faithful reflections of their appellations. He is not an aggressive interventionalistic importer à la Robert Kacher (or to a lesser extent, Neal Rosenthal, Eric Salomon, or Peter Weygandt), but neither does he permit his producers to take a laissez-faire approach to their work. In a few short years Kysela has emerged as one of the finest palates and selectors of top wine, whether it be an inexpensive Muscadet or a top of the line Burgundy."
