As a participant in global tasting panels and as an educated grower in Aÿ, a grand cru village, Caroline’s discerning palate is not only finely tuned but functions as a tool that paints with consciousness. Each piece of art transmutes the character of a wine into a meticulously orchestrated interplay of granularities or into a vertical cascade of gold, capturing the very essence of its liveliness. The vitality experienced on the palate can be translated into an animated gesture on canvas, while a meticulously crafted wine finds representation in a precise knife stroke, embodying the artist’s mastery of pictorial technique.
Caroline’s distinct signature is unassuming yet recognizable. As a self taught artist, she didn’t want to sign her works, she found her signature in upcycling residues. She employs a humble metal clip, the kind employed to secure corks during the long maturation of select prestige champagne bottles in cellars. This unassuming staple forms the letter ‘C,’ symbolizing both Caroline, Champagne and Creativity. It serves as a subtle acknowledgment of her role in repurposing grapes and wine residues into art, encapsulating the core of her contribution to the world of wine.

Her creations extend beyond mere paintings; they embark on an intimate odyssey into the heart of the grape, commemorating the symbiosis between palate and palette.
