4. MADAME LALOU BIZE - LEROY

 

Madame Lalou Bize-Leroy has been widely known for years as the "Queen of Burgundy" and one of the most powerful women in wine. Today, she is behind the most expensive red wine sold in the world, as well as white wines that bring tears of joy to even the greatest wine lovers, if you are lucky enough to even get close to her almost legendary wines. At almost 92 years old (born 3 March 1932), Madame Lalou Bize-Leroy is indeed a living legend, and she is still active both in the vineyards and on the estate.

If we look at the current situation for a moment, 92-year-old Madame Leroy is in charge of no less than three companies: a negociant business called Maison Leroy, the Domaine d'Auvenay, and Domaine Leroy. The Maison Leroy negociant business is a classic trade business, as you would associate it with Burgundy. Here, Madame Lalou Bize-Leroy runs the negociant business with all her values in mind, and therefore only the best grapes are purchased. Most of the wines are made from grapes from parcels where Bize-Leroy and her people tend the vines themselves throughout the season. This ensures raw material of the highest quality.

Few people have influenced the ’rise-to-fame’ of Burgundy as much as Henri Jayer, and then Madame Lalou Bize-Leroy. And if the great Henry Jayer is often referred to as the "King of Burgundy", surely Madame Leroy must be the rightful inheritor of the throne as the "Queen of Burgundy".

5. ARIANE DE ROTHSCHILD

 

Born in El Salvador and living in Bangladesh, Columbia & Congo (DRC), Ariane de Rothschild is a French banker, chair of the board of directors of the Edmond de Rothschild group since April 2019. On becoming female The first CEO of the Edmond de Rothschild group in 2015, as the only woman on the company's board of directors, she soon realized that "there are stereotypes about the role of a woman". In the years that followed, Ariane proved that women have great potential in leadership positions. She tirelessly strives to modernize a company with a long legacy and tradition that can sometimes stifle innovation and progress.

Not only does she possess rare leadership abilities, Ariane is also known as a great mother. She inspired her children about wine and brought to the world of wine a talented winemaker, Eve de Rothschild - daughter of Ariane. Eve has helped revive unique wine flavors that seemed to have been forgotten. These are wine flavors that break all the rules, while still honoring the traditional values of the Rothschild family: boldness, excellence and transmission.

It can be said that Ariane de Rothschild is a role model and inspiration for women, not only for wine lovers but also for women everywhere in the world.

6. EMELINE BORIE

Emeline Borie is the daughter of François-Xavier Borie, who is the current owner and the woman behind the revival of Château Grand Puy Lacoste. Currently, Emeline is supporting François-Xavier in managing this winery, investing and constantly improving quality to reflect the uniqueness of Pauillac's terroir.

With the great achievements that Emeline brought to Château Grand Puy Lacoste, she continued to make an important mark that few people can do, which is becoming the President of the Pauillac region. In this new role, she is responsible for regional issues such as protecting Pauillac from global warming, improving the environment in vineyards, and eliminating stereotypes about feminism.

7. BÉRANGÈRE TESSERON

Château Larrivaux was founded in 1581 and has always been run by women. Taking over the winery in 2005, Bérangère Tesseron has continued that noble family tradition with bold marks on the world wine map.

For Tesseron, being a woman in a world dominated by men was a test of perseverance: "At first, it was difficult - and not just because I'm a woman." but because I was young, some of the men I worked with didn't take me seriously. Fifteen years later, most of them have retired and I'm still here."

When asked about what makes the women of Larrivaux different, Tesseron shared: "Passion! All Chateau Larrivaux women are strong women. They are passionate, they love their family, they love tradition, and they really give me this sense. So I'm just here to take care of Larrivaux and… Pass it on to the next generation."

Bérangère Tesseron's story is like an impressive note in the harmony of the wine world, making anyone who loves wine constantly admire.
