CHRISTOPHE LACAU, PRODUCER IN THE WORLD OF ENTERTAINMENT
ART, WINE AND DIVERSITY
The similarity that struck Christophe Lacau, it is the diversity found in the Saint-Emilion wines. This wealth is comparable to that of showbiz, “artists are like Saint-Emilion wines: there are good ones, small ones and great ones in the small”. And the similarity does not stop there. Building a show is a very long process, made of work, reflection and passion. “At the start of a show nothing is won, they are built the same way but the result is never the same. It has to be the right year, the right occasion, and the ideal assembly. It is a whole year’s work to get to the final product, as is the case with wine!
THE PERSON BEHIND THE WINE
Through this comparison, Christophe Lacau celebrates the work behind the development of a wine. “As in a show, it’s about sharing, exchange, this human side is very important”. And humanity, the producer finds it in each Saint-Emilion wine, “I met a lot of great guys here, the growers of Saint-Emilion are above all great people who have a heart of gold”. In Christophe Lacau, Saint-Emilion found an enthusiastic ambassador. He is now Vigneron d’Honneur of the Jurade and Bourgeois of Saint-Emilion. A logical conclusion for this wine lover, being a friend of Patrick Timsit, another fervent ambassador of these appellations.
