About Émilien Boutillat:

Émilien Boutillat joined the Piper-Heidsieck family in October 2018 being appointed chef de cave, taking over from renowned Régis Camus. Thanks to the dynamic approach and philosophy of excellence to balance both tradition with distinction, Piper-Heidsieck is the most awarded Champagne House of the century. At age 34, Émilien was awarded the IWC Sparkling Winemaker of the Year 2021 - presented by the world’s most comprehensive and influential wine competition, the International Wine Challenge in London.

Émilien is one of the youngest winemakers among the prodigious Champagne Houses. Born in Champagne and raised on his father’s Pinot Meunier vineyard, Émilien has a broad experience, being the chef de cave for Champagnes Cattier and Armand de Brignac from 2014 to 2018, along with working vintages at wineries in Chile, New Zealand, South Africa, California, Rhône Valley and Bordeaux.

His exposure to such a wide variety of locations and winemaking practices has allowed his skills and know-how to flourish and shape him into the open-minded chief winemaker. Speaking several languages, this young and talented ‘cellar master’ has taken advantage of his Champagne roots and international career to develop a dynamic approach to his profession with an inquisitiveness and positivity.

And Émilien helped lead the charge for Piper-Heidsieck and Rare Champagne to become the first group of Champagne houses to be B-Corp certified.

Join Émilien for a 90 minute masterclass. Light snacks will be provided.
