La Sommelière, a major European player in the wine cellar market, has selected Léa Perret as the ambassador for the new Apogée range. Crowned the best young cellarer in France in 2022, she now represents an innovative range of wine cellars for aging, connected and remotely controllable.
This launch marked a turning point in La Sommelière's collaboration with the largest wine merchant in France: Nicolas. With 498 stores, our partnership with the number one wine retailer in the city center allows for a perfect combination of experts to offer a quality experience to wine lovers.
Portrait of Léa Perret
At just 26 years old, Léa Perret is the rising star of Lyon and French gastronomy. She discovered the most beautiful bottles in her grandparents' cellar and with her aunt, a sommelier in Lyon, and has turned it into a profession-passion.
Winner of Les Rabelais de la gastronomie prize in 2021, she also holds since 2022 the title of "Best young wine merchant in France". We met her in the Nicolas cellar on the rue des Jacobins in Lyon, which she co-manages. She agreed to become the face of our Apogée range, the latest innovation from La Sommelière, which creates a perfect case to age the most beautiful bottles while keeping control, even from a distance.
