Haute Living has a terrific piece featuring Cyril Delarue, commercial director for Champagne Bollinger in North America, in a Mother’s Day roundup that includes quotes from seven “Power Players” and the advice their mothers gave them.  The article is titled, “Mom Knows Best: 7 Power Players Share the Best Advice Their Mothers Ever Gave Them,” and includes an image of Cyril holding a bottle of Bollinger.  See below for a quote from Cyril and a link to the full article.

“I could name some of the great values my mother taught me, they are all helpful today, but one thing I am very thankful for is the fact that she originally advised me not to work for the family business…her own family business! She wanted me to be free in my choices, without pressure to live out some already determined “destiny” and it has been always very helpful. Doing things my way allowed me to make my own route. In my twenties I decided to study wine and winemaking and the business and being able to do it on my own terms led me to fall in love with it organically. I would soon realize how special Champagne Bollinger and our family business really is and was drawn back to it but I’ll never have to wonder if it was the right choice.”
