Egon and The Beat Konducta keep it classy in France.

Madlib fans are surely well-versed in the producer’s penchant for excavated funk, mushroom caps, and blunt smoke. But the latest addition to a perpetually expanding palate is none-other-than the oldest marker of exceptional taste; an aged-to-perfection bottle of vino.

Seeing as how celebrations were in order this past week — upon the release of Lib’s latest collaborative project with Freddie Gibbs — a moment to showcase his growing fondness of crushed grape product has surfaced. In a new video from France’s Radio Nova, a crew shadows the producer and longtime manager, Egon Alapatt, as the duo tours a champagne vineyard in France. Guided by Jerome Prevost of Champagne La Closerie, Egon and The Beat Konducta go behind-the-scenes of a world-class operation and chop it up with a master vintner on the cross-sections of spiritual jazz and singular bubbly.
