Brun will join Charles Heidsieck on 25 May, where he will work under the management of Régis Camus, and alongside director of the house Stephen Leroux

Brun – who currently works under Dominique Demarville at Veuve Clicquot – has been at the LVMH-owned house for the last 15 years, where he is senior winemaker, looking after wine development and communication.

He comes from Aÿ, from a historical family of Champagne growers, négociants and barrel makers, and has a background in oenology.

Cécile Bonnefond, CEO of Champagne Charles Heidsieck commented. “After the tragic death of Thierry Roset in October 2014, we are very happy to welcome Cyril as chef de caves. With his expertise and passion, Cyril will be committed to continue the exceptional work carried out by his predecessors.”
