After working more than 20 years in mergers and acquisitions consulting activities related to the wine sector, I took a new challenge : applying the principles I believe in on vineyard that was being set up. These principles are a careful winegrowing on a great terroir on very old vines, inspired by my Bourguignon heritage.

After owning for more than 20 years the Domaine de l’Ile Margaux in Bordeaux, I decided to move to Roussillon in 2003, thrilled by this promising land. I am the estate manager and my most important decision was to choose those who work daily in the vines and the winery.

After a ten-year experience as a wine merchant, almost half of which was spent in his own cellar in Banyuls sur Mer, I joined Domaine de Vénus as Sales Director of Domaine de Vénus, a position that was created on the occasion of my recruitment, given Domaine de Vénus’ ambitions in pursuing its national and international positioning in the quality wine segment for the restaurant and wine merchant sectors. I am also in charge of all the communication of the Domaine.

After studying wine making and enology, I left Versailles for the Roussillon in order to elaborate new types of wines. I joined the Domaine de Vénus in 2005 and was given the chance to do what I always waited fo : being the Cellar Master. On a daily basis, I am in charge of the vinification, assisted by our consultant, Agnès Piperno. I am also in charge of administrative work.
