Talent attracts talent. That’s why Ludovic du Plessis, the CEO of Champagne Telmont, is often seen hobnobbing with the likes of tennis great Serena Williams, music prodigy Pharrell Williams, and Oscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

Plessis’ skills were honed at Paris Dauphine University, where he earned a degree in marketing that was a harbinger of things to come. His foray into wine began in communications and later as a brand manager for Dom Perignon. He dabbled in Cognac for a while, as LOUIS XIII’s Global Executive Director, but the call of Champagne was too captivating to ignore, so Plessis made Champagne his career.

Enter Champagne Telmont, the Leonardo DiCaprio-backed brand for which Plessis is CEO. Telmont might be Plessis’ biggest play yet, ushering the century-old house into a new era and more sustainable future. From reducing the House’s carbon footprint to organic viticulture, Plessis’ role ensures that we’re all drinking the best wines in the safest way possible— in a way that will last.
