Champagne Charles Heidsieck announces new Chef de Caves

Champagne Charles Heidsieck is proud to announce the appointment of Cyril Brun as Chef de Caves for Charles Heidsieck, from 25th May 2015. Cyril joins the winemaking team under the management of Régis Camus, and will be working closely with Director of the house Stephen Leroux. His role as Chef de Caves will centre around maintaining the continuity of the ‘Charles’ style, and also managing the house’s relationship with grape suppliers and partners.

Cyril joins the Charles Heidsieck family after working for Veuve Clicquot for the last 15 years, where he looked after wine development and communication. He comes from Aÿ, from a historical family of Champagne growers, negociants and barrel makers, and has a background in oenology.

Cécile Bonnefond, CEO of Champagne Charles Heidsieck commented. “After the tragic death of Thierry Roset in October 2014, we are very happy to welcome Cyril as Chef de Caves. With his expertise and passion, Cyril will be committed to continuing the exceptional work carried out by his predecessors.”
