ALEXANDRE JEAN

Sommelier
Paris, France

Alexandre Jean
Alexandre Jean has been a sommelier for 15 years. His career is one of distinction lead by a creative enthusiasm for wine. In the same manor that a poet might reinterpret words to create rythmic compositions that speak of love, Alexandre redefines the classical associations of wine and food that one is usually accustomed to. He started his career in Beaune, Burgandy, a city rich with history of wine. He then began working in one of Paris most famous culinary institutions, La Tour D’ argent, where its cellars hold some almost mythical wines that he describes as catalysts for time travel. For 8 years he worked along side Mr. Alain Senderens, at three michelin star Lucas Carton, where the avant guard cuisine allowed him to fully discover the universe of agreements between food and wine. Since 2006, Alexandre has been working with total freedom of expression and choice along side Pascal Barbot and Chrsitophe Rohat at 3 michelin star restaurant L’astrance. Alexandre has been named sommelier of the year in 2011 by Chef Magazine, and sommelier of the year in 2009 by the Gault & Millau Guide. Besides creating one of the most unusual experiences one can ever have tasting wine by visiting L’astrance in Paris, one can also attend his wine discovery and tasting courses that he teaches in his very limited free time.
