Focus on ... Claudie, our Master Sommelier ... in the following presentations of "those who work for you at CARRE".
Yes, the CARRE is lucky enough to benefit from the advice of a Master Sommelier (the name does not yet exist in the feminine, unlike Sommeliere!), Reflecting above all a very beautiful friendship. THANK Claudie for your brightness, your sparkle and the magic of the wine that you send us so well.
Sommelier since 29 years, Maitre Sommelier, Best Young Sommelier of Burgundy and Franche Comté 1990, Claudie is animated by the wine tasting since always. For her, he speaks of a history, a civilization, a culture, a landscape and it is transgenerational! It comes from his childhood memories where at each family meal a vintage made time travel with family scenes of that year, which generated laughter and friendliness even beyond quarrels! What magic! Then that right to have red wine with cheese, once we had made communion! It was pride to have finally left the world of childhood! And there, she says to herself: wine is divine!
How not to do his job when you are formatted like this. She wanted to be an oenologist, it was banned because "it's not a job for girls! Epicurean, she chooses the restoration as training. She discovers a job she did not even know: sommelier. She talks to her restaurant teacher at the end of BEP who answers "it's not a job for girls! ". There, it is too much! She continues her studies in a class where there is a mention sommelier and she goes to the end.
After having worked in sommellerie at Château de Gilly, then in restoration in the Loire and Cher, in Loire Atlantique and since 16 years in the saumurois, his passion for training and the transmission of good taste for better eating is becoming stronger. For our Claudie, a sommelier is a smuggler of messages and emotions between the winemaker and the customer around the kitchen. And it is bright in its initiation workshops or diners agreements wine and food because it creates the dishes according to the wines and she lives the Wine, from the verb Vivre ! She likes experiences such as the "wine and music" evenings that she has created or train salespeople for the needs of wine companies ... " It's a job that if you do not do it with your heart energy does not pass. Because wine is for me a living being and he speaks to me! She said with great emotion. His favorite phrase of the great men is that of Salvador Dali "Who knows how to taste never drinks wine but tastes its secrets".
Great Epicurean, defender of the culture of taste, do not tell him especially that the wine is alcohol ... Because there, from the top of its 1.50m, it is likely to smoke by the ears! She will tell you wisely that "wine is made to be shared, alcohol to be burnt!"
