67: Champagne Talk with Cynthia Coutu - Wine and Spirits Part 3 The New Paris Podcast

    • Culture et société

Women and Champagne have a long history together. In fact, If Champagne became shorthand for luxury and celebration, it’s entirely thanks to the business acumen of Barbe-Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin, commonly referred to as “La Veuve (widow) Clicquot.” Not only did she invent the riddling table, but she also turned the small, fledgling business she took over after her husband’s 1805 death into a global empire. Still, as is true with much of the broader world of wine, women in France’s Champagne region remain underrepresented both in production and leadership positions. And, I would argue, in the minds of consumers. That’s where Cynthia Coutu steps in. She joins me to talk about her Champagne club Delectabulles and how she works to champion women on all sides of the bottle.
