Top Ten—Élyse Lambert, Master Sommelier

Top Ten—Élyse Lambert, Master Sommelier

For those who sleep with a corkscrew under their pillow.

July 8, 2015

The Court of Master Sommeliers recently welcomed Montreal-born Élyse Lambert into their ranks, one of only seven new recruits. Here's what she loves, besides kicking ass in the wine world.  


1. MY NEW RUNNING SHOES
"
Pink Nike Pegasus 31s. Didn't buy them for the color for sure...but when I tried them on the store, I fell in love with their comfort. The color is growing on me now, and I am running, running, running!"

2. NESPRESSO MACHINE
"
Because once you adopt this machine that gives you a coffee without compromise each and every day of your life...always use the milk frother for my first coffee of the morning!"

3. COCOMIRA DARK CHOCOLATE
"
Perfect chocolate and caramel combination. By itself, on vanilla ice cream with some homemade crumble...so scrumptious."

4. ABC KITCHEN IN NEW YORK CITY
"
My last trip in the Big Apple was so great, which I love for its restaurant scene. ABC Kitchen was such a treat! Great food, great service, small but well-balanced wine list. A must if you go to NYC."

5. HWY 1 IN CALIFORNIA
"
I accomplished one of the things I had on my life 'to-do' list recently: driving for a few hours on Hwy 1, following the ocean. How many times you can say "wow" in one day."

6. PRODUTTORI DEL BARBARESCO
"
For their story, their wines, and their price. I love Nebbiolo!"

7. THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY
"
Just because! I like happy movies, and this one has a great landscape and soundtrack."

8. A TRIP TO CHABLIS
"
Lovely village, great wines, welcoming people. Au Fil du Zinc restaurant is a must. Fantastic wine list at more than a decent price. Great food. Pass my regards to Fabien, the owner, and ask for his wine recommendation."

9. HOT YOGA
"
What a great way to find your inner balance and sweat everything out. Love it for the focus."

10. LAGUIOLE
"
My corkscrew never leaves me...except in the airplane. I love my Laguiole. Looks great, works well, and has a life guarantee."
