Pauline Lhote

Winemaking Director, Chandon California

Pauline earned a National Diploma of Winemaking in Reims and early in her career she focused on crafting rosé champagnes. Pauline then set her sights on Chandon in the Napa Valley, the first French-owned sparkling wine house in California. She arrived in Yountville for a three-month internship in 2006, fell in love with the region and has stayed in Napa ever since. Since she was promoted to Head Winemaker, Pauline has been working with her team to create a new wine style, playing up the California brightness and increasing the vibrancy and intensity of Chandon’s flavors and aromas. 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.

More than 40 individuals came together to orchestrate the sharing of savoir-faire learned on the ground at our Maisons around the world. This undertaking led to concrete actions: significant investments in environmentally-friendly equipment, training for farmers and wine-makers in new technologies, assistance in attaining responsible viticulture certifications and support for scientific and university projects to disseminate knowledge and transmit living soils to the future generations.
