Ludo Lefebvre recently began making a Burgundy, Maison Ludo, with vintner Ray Walker. The first bottles will be released in 2015. Here, three wines that inspired the chef.
Domaine François Raveneau Chablis Premier Cru Montée de Tonnerre
“This is the crème de la crème of Chablis. All the high-end restaurants sell it; it’s really an aspirational wine. I was lucky to work in so many Michelin three-star kitchens, so I developed a very expensive wine palate early on.”
2011 Domaine Jean-Marc Brocard Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses
“Mr. Brocard is a good friend of my late grandfather. When I went to France for my wedding reception, my grandfather, dad and I went to visit him and he did the most amazing vertical tasting of Chablis for us. Of course, we started at 10 a.m.”
