Sylvie Cazes

In 1989, after studying foreign languages and training at the Institute of Oenology, as well as at the Institute of Business Administration, Sylvie Cazes joined her brother in the group composed of AXA-Millésimes estates (which include the château Pichon-Longueville) and those of the Cazes family (which include château Lynch-Bages).  In 1995, she became Director of Communications for the group.

Starting in 2001, she developed wine tourism activities within the family-owned group. Among these activities is Bordeaux Saveurs, a travel agency specialized in organizing trips to the most beautiful wine-growing regions, which is at present owned 100 % by Sylvie Cazes.

In 2011, Sylvie took over the restaurant Le Chapon Fin, an institution in haute cuisine in the Bordeaux region. She has given the restaurant a breath of fresh air by bringing together a young, creative team.

After completing an Executive MBA at HEC Paris, Sylvie Cazes became Managing Director of the Roederer group estates in Bordeaux: Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande and Château de Pez. Her mission led her to restructure these two magnificent properties and to uphold their prestige all over the world.

From 2008 through the end of 2012, Sylvie Cazes was also elected President of the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux and board member of the Conseil des Grands Crus Classés en 1855.

In May 2014, Sylvie and her three children acquired Château Chauvin, a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé, with the desire to continue the work she had carried out up to then while providing the estate with the best possible assets for success in this new chapter of its history.

Alongside her contribution to the world of wine-making, Sylvie Cazes was also a member of Bordeaux City Council in charge of promoting the wine-making industry and wine tourism from 2008 to 2014. Finally, since 2008 she has been in charge of a project which is dear to Alain Juppé, the establishment of La Cité du Vin. In January 2015, she was named President of the Fondation pour la Culture et les Civilisations du Vin.
