LONDRES

En résumé

Born in Lons le Saunier in the area of Jura. I am now with my brother the 5th generation in the family working in the catering industry. I also had a grandfather and uncle producing wine under the iconic appellation Chateau Chalon.
I still remember the bottling and a tasting at a very young age of a Chateau Chalon 1875.

I started my studies in catering in Le Mans, and then Nice and finished combining my passion for wine studying an extra year in Toulouse as a sommelier.
At this time I had the chance to come in England for a job experience, where I discovered the huge international wine market that exist in the country.

After few harvest and vinification with Michel Issaly in Gaillac and Laleure Piot in Pernand Vergelesses I headed to Birmingham at Hotel du Vin where I meet few people who guided me through my professional experience as my studies.

I then took the opportunity to go to Spain for a year and came back to London and entered few competitions and exams.
I have been working for Gordon Ramsay more than 5 years as head sommelier, managing a team of 14 people and finally passed in 2015 the renowned Master Sommelier Diploma.

I also spend as much time as possible in vineyards in order to understand the geography, grapes and everything as much as history related to each area.

It is now down to us, sommelier, to convey our knowledge to the guests, staff, friends and family.
