Nicolas Laurent - South East Asia Associate Sales Director, Cult Wines

Having watched Cult Wines from a distance since 2015, at hearing news of our Singapore venture Nicolas seized the opportunity of joining us in September 2018 as South East Asia Associate Sales Director, moving away from his four-year posting as Le Club FICOFI Advisor in Singapore, looking after 40+ UHNW Members of the world’s most exclusive wine club, by invite only.

There he developed an impressive and extensive knowledge of investment-grade wines through regular events held for clients, and in sourcing them the finest and rarest wines produced anywhere in the world. Prior to that, he spent a combined two years and a half at Wine Connection in Singapore, and Bureau Stephane Fouquet in Bordeaux, as a Wine Speaker and Wine Broker respectively.

He holds a Master’s Degree in International Business from KEDGE Business School in Bordeaux, and in 2015 he achieved his WSET Level 3 with Merit. When he does not practice tennis, golf and running, his interests include contemporary art, (fine) dining, cigars, whisky, timepieces, vinyls, and travelling the world. When in Singapore, he likes to mingle with other members of Straits Clan and FrenchFounders. Coming back to wines, and aside from work, Nicolas is driven by his curiosity, and he loves to share bottles (ideally magnums!) from the Beaujolais, Jura and Loire Valley regions, as well as of the new wave of quaffable Californians and Australians.
