Yohann's career in wine spans over 14 years. He has worked at some of the most prestigious restaurants in Europe and also attained the ultimate professional credential pertaining to wine – Master Sommelier – which can only be accomplished through various levels of certification and stringent and thorough career assessment. This all requires at least 10 years of professional experience. In addition, he is the only Master Sommelier in Asia.
Before attending wine school, Yohann became interested in wine at an early age while helping at his uncle’s vineyard in Loire Valley, France. With the dedication to pursue a career in wine and the desire to broaden his horizons, he decided to relocate to the United Kingdom. He soon had the opportunity to work at Hotel du Vin. Here, he was mentored by Master Sommelier Dimitri Mesnard. This man encouraged him to enter competitions to increase his wine knowledge and develop his skills as a sommelier. In 2011, Yohann took home the U.K. Sommelier of the Year award before moving to Macau and taking on the role of head sommelier at Robuchon au Dôme at the Grand Lisboa.
