Jean-Philippe and Alice Loriot

New Horizons

2006 Jean-Philippe finishes his winegrowing course and joins his parents working on the estate, taking over in 2013. Determined to protect and build on his heritage, he creates a 100% Meunier vintage cuvee in a nod to the Festigny vineyards. He obtains France’s HEV certification for the entire estate. Thanks to him, Loriot-Pagel Champagnes are now exported almost all over the world, as far afield as Australia.

In 2017, his sister Alice joins him, leaving her career in banking to return to her roots and write the next chapter in the family’s 180-year history.
