World's Best Sommelier
After a few experiences in Parisian restaurants, he decided to take the leap in 1984 by opening, at age 24, his own Parisian bistro, his very own "baby" which now contains nearly 10,000 bottles. In 1992, his professional career led him, for the first time, among the candidates selected to represent France at the World Sommelier Competition where he won the first prize. In April 2015, he received the Honoris Causa Medal from the prestigious MOF competition (Meilleurs Ouvriers de France). Philippe also served as a sommelier during the state dinners at the Elysée, under the presidency of Jacques Chirac and is today, the President of the Sommeliers of France.
