Finally, we taste the wines at Château de Lascaux in English. We’re accompanied by the winemaker himself, Jean-Benoit Cavalier. These aren’t his AOC Pic Saint-Loup wines (which we tasted in French), but they still bring a lot to the table. We talk about wines with love handles and wines that taste like entire baskets of fruit. Limestone deposits. Yin yangs. What didn’t we talk about? It was a fun show.
The French episodes cover some of the bigger badder wines from Château de Lascaux, and this episode refers to them heavily. I even retaste Les Pierres d’Argent at one point, eager to see how the two different white wines compare side by side.

Oh and hey, Episode 20! That feels like a landmark. Next episode: Jean Heritier, our guest from episode 1, comes back and gives us a neat treat and the episode ends with a guessing game!
