Our interview with Jean-Marc Roulot will be released on I'll Drink to That! tomorrow. You won't want to miss his very personal retelling of his own life history, or his entirely frank discussion about his own wines and the situation in Burgundy since the 1990s. We talk about why he left the family domaine at the age of 20 to pursue a life away from wine and Burgundy, and why he returned at 32 with the determination to make great wines. He also tells us what he did to change the winemaking after he returned. Jean-Marc reveals how he met his wife, Alix de Montille, and reveals what he was missing in his own life that he found as a member of her family. He also gives his own contrarian assessment of recent vintages, talks about what new wines he will be releasing soon, and does not hesitate to describe in-depth his actions to remedy premox. If your are curious about the house style of Domaine Roulot, he reveals the source of that as well, in addition to describing what it is.
This is a tremendously open and in-depth talk with the head of one of the world's most admired wineries. Do check it out tomorrow when it is released. The track should be online and on iTunes by noon.
