As president of Bordeaux négociant CVBG, Mathieu Chadronnier is among the world’s most important fine wine figures. As well as making a brilliant varietal Merlot with his wife, Anne Laurence, at Château Marsau in the Côte de Francs, he also trades with 66 different countries. Listen to us chat about why great wine is defined by quality not geography, New World icons, the changing Bordeaux wine trade and why he’s happiest walking in the Alps with his camera.
