The Future of Champagne

Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon, Chef de Cave of Louis Roederer

Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon is the chef de cave at storied champagne house Louis Roederer, and one of the leading voices in this ancient and enigmatic industry.

This was an incredibly fun episode to be a part of — Jean-Baptiste brought a couple of bottles of champagne along to the recording, and over a flute or six we spoke about his predictions for the world of wine, the truth about biodynamic champagnes, and why all wine, really, is about our childhoods. Enjoy.

Our thanks to the Savoy for playing hosts. 

This episode has been recorded at Mark's Club, read by Joseph Bullmore and produced by Martin Lumsden.
