Their names are Ludivine, Juliette and Alexandrine. They are respected oenologist and winemakers, working in Burgundy, France and beyond. They present a new face of Burgundy, more feminine and modern. They are undeniable pieces of the wine industry in Burgundy and seem to be on an equal footing with men. However, to get where they are today, they had show more determination, to show more envy than their male counterparts. When a woman inherits the family estate, it is above all, in the overwhelming majority of cases, because she does not have a brother capable of taking over. Women oenologists must always do more than their male counterparts to convince of their abilities and establish their credibility.
Are women changing the style of Burgundy wines? Do they make wine differently? Do they have a particular way of looking after their vines? Do they have a different palace from that of men?
You can taste the sensitivity in the wine of those who made them. And if sensitivity is not the prerogative of women, it remains one of their strong points!
