Our guest speaker
Pauline Lhote
Pauline Lhote
Winemaking Director @ Domaine Chandon
As winemaker at Chandon, Pauline Lhote is responsible for every part of the winemaking process from grape to glass. She is passionate about bubbles as she grew up in the Champagne region of France and earned a National Diploma of winemaking in Reims. Among other public interventions, she has been hailed as a female leader in the industry by the likes of Glamour, Marie Claire and Nylon as well as “Rising Star“ by The Drinks Business and acknowledged in Wine Enthusiast’s 2017 40 Under 40 and in Create & Cultivate’s 2019 100 List.
We will talk about

What are the aspirations and convictions of a successful woman in a traditionally male-dominated industry?

How can we foster innovation within the wine industry?

How can Domaine Chandon best incarnate that modern vision, while crafting sparkling wines of the highest quality?

In order to answer some of these questions and have an open discussion, we will warmly welcome Pauline Lhote, Winemaking Director for Domaine Chandon. Her Winemaker Assistant, Laura Fontaine, will also attend and contribute to this magical moment.

Pauline will do a stand alone to present her career path, a glimpse into her role at Chandon, and vision. She will then take us on a tasting journey through a selection of Chandon sparkling wines, an opportunity for both winemaker and audience to interact and also learn from each other.
