Champagne Henriot announces the appointment of its new Wine Maker, Alice Tétienne
Champagne Henriot is very pleased to welcome Alice Tétienne as its new Wine Maker, starting from April 1st, 2020.
Alice Tétienne joined Champagne Krug in 2015. An oenologist, she is responsible for vineyard relations and is part of the tasting committee.
Born in the Champagne region and driven by a desire to acquire a global understanding of the vineyard, Alice Tétienne started studying the wine growing field in order to understand the raw material and the influence of the terroir on the vegetative expression and the quality of the grapes. She holds a Degree in Vine Sciences and a Master in Vine and Terroir. During her studies, she integrated different wine-growing estates and research centers, in order to adopt a vision that is both field-based but also scientific.
In order to be able to enhance the value and develop the image of Champagne, Alice Tétienne then explored the communication sector by obtaining a Master in Wines and Champagne and immersed herself in the Marketing department of the Laurent Perrier Champagne.
She then concentrated on oenology, obtaining the National Diploma of Oenologist, being awarded with the prize for oenological innovation and the prize for the dissertation.
She joined Centre Vinicole Nicolas Feuillatte in 2014 as an oenologist, supporting members on grape pressing and winemaking, then Maison Krug in November 2015.
Alice Tétienne thus acquired a global and transverse knowledge of the elaboration of Champagne wines, starting from the raw material, its selection and its understanding, up to the elaboration of the blends. She has also developed a strong sense of interpersonal skills and a solid knowledge of the Champagne vineyards.
Gilles de Larouzière, President of Champagne Henriot, comments: "I would first like to thank Laurent Fresnet, who for 13 years has greatly contributed to enhancing the precision and elegance of our Champagnes. We are very happy that Alice Tétienne is joining us. A brilliant and talented woman, she will contribute to grow the influence and the valorization of Champagne Henriot, which began in 2018, thanks to her culture of excellence and her strong spirit of collaboration with our partners in the vineyard. By appointing her, I of course also have a special thought for another talented woman, my relative Apolline Henriot, who in 1808 founded our House ".
