Champagne's Chef de Cave of the year!
We were thrilled to hear that Nicolas
Jaeger, cellarmaster at Alfred Gratien,
our oldest suppliers and the people
behind The Society's Champagne
Brut, was voted Champagne's Chef de
Cave of the Year 2018. This comes on
the back of his being named
Winemaker of the Year by the Year by the Guide
Hachette earlier this year.
nominated alongside Clément Pierlot
from Champagne Pommery and
Michel Fauconnet from Laurent
Perrier and was chosen by the panel
and an online vote for his
contributions to the development of
the image of Champagne. Typically
humble, Nicolas said that it was an
honour for him to receive the award as recognition of the work of his family (he
represents the fourth generation of cellarmasters at Gratien), the hard work of
the growers who produce beautiful grapes for them to work with and the whole
team at Alfred Gratien. Nicolas, we salute you!
Why not raise a glass to toast Nicolas' success with his lovingly crafted Champagne?
