Dominique Demarville is one of Champagne’s legendary winemakers, with an impressive career spanning more than two decades as a vineyard director, cellar master and general manager at some of Champagne’s leading Maisons. 

In 2003 he became Director of vines and wines for both G.H.Mumm and Perrier-Jouët before moving onto Veuve Clicquot where he was Cellar Master and Deputy Director.

They were golden opportunities to delve deep into the complex world of champagne winemaking at the highest level which in turn allowed him to come into his own and leave a distinctive mark. 

At Veuve, Dominique made significant improvements to La Grande Dame and launched a new multi-vintage cuvée, Extra Brut Extra Old, which was quite a new concept at the time.

Dominque recently inherited a new role, as Cellar Master and General Manager, for Champagne Lallier in 2021 where he says there is great opportunity for progress and creativity. 

It was my pleasure to interview Dominique during my recent visit to Champagne.
