    Odilon de Varine joined Champagne Gosset in 2006 as deputy managing director. In 2016, he became the cellarmaster for the house and will also continue in his deputy managing director role.

    For Odilon, wine is the family business. He was born in Reims, his mother was a grower in Burgundy and his father looked after the vineyards of a well-known Champagne house.

    Odilon completed his degree in enology in Reims in 1989 and spent two years as cellarmaster at an Alsatian domaine. In 1991, he moved to Champagne and worked as cellarmaster at Champagne Deutz (1991-2003) and Champagne Henriot (2003-2006) before joining Champagne Gosset.

    As chef de cave for Champagne Gosset, Odilon plans to continue the philosophy of Jean-Pierre Mareigner, the former cellarmaster, “At Gosset we first create a wine. The bubbles make it sublime.”

    Odilon is married with six children and when he is not enjoying his family or fine wine, he pursues his passion for rugby and restoring and racing vintage cars.
