Paris, Thursday, 9 June 2011 - Press release.


1855 announces today the appointment of Gérard Pangon as editor-in-chief of 1855 Magazine.


As a journalist at Télérama for two decades, Gérard Pangon was a film critic, he was in charge of television and radio services, and he created the website. For four years, Mr Pangon was at Radio Classique, where he presented the daily radio show "Place de la Musique." He managed the classical music website. Gérard Pangon also has a doctorate in chemistry and he taught high school before becoming a journalist.


With film, music and cartoons, Gérard Pangon continuously seeks to share his passions. For him, culture can only be revealed when exchanging with readers and listeners, with whom he always establishes a great complicity.


"Since 18 months now, Gérard has been regularly contributing to 1855 Magazine, and with success. To entrust him with our magazine was a very natural decision for us. He will ensure that 1855 Magazine is well on its way to becoming the most prestigious magazine for wine lovers," says Emeric Sauty de Chalon, President of 1855.


"To discuss wine and all that relates to it, one has to also try to be as subtle as a Woody Allen film, as elegant as a Mozart sonata and as intriguing as a Stieg Larsson thriller. Mission Impossible? Perhaps. What is essential is to make the effort," says Gérard Pangon, Editor-in-Chief of 1855 Magazine.


1855 Magazine is a semi-monthly magazine published by 1855 with a circulation of 50,000 per issue.


1855 was the year when Napoleon III had the greatest wines of Bordeaux classified. Today, 1855 offers wine lovers the largest choice on the Internet, with more than 25,000 listed. The aim of 1855 is to build the world's leading luxury brand in the sale of great wines.
