Caudalie was born in 1993 when Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas had a chance encounter with Dr. Vercauteren, the world’s leading expert on grape and grapevine polyphenols. During the grape harvest, on the family vineyard the Château Smith Haut Lafitte in Bordeaux, the professor revealed to them the extraordinary antioxidant power of grape and grapevine polyphenols.
