For its first vintage, Fusées takes off from Bordeaux, a powerful terroir but a little picky in terms of voting intentions. For quite a few people, who have not been drinking it for a long time, Bordeaux wines embody this dad-style mondovino full of arrogance, overpriced Cabernets and cosmetic oenology. It was still true yesterday, it is a little less true today, and tomorrow will probably be a better day. But our subject is not that.

Our subject is the winegrowers who move the lines, the dining cellars which burn the planks, the tables which have it under their elbow, the apprentice chemists who see their cuti, the great elders who pass the hand and the young shoots who take up the glove. Expats, outlaws and will-o'-the-wisps who inject new life into a vineyard straddling tradition. In short, all those who make wine more beautiful, bigger, more alive.

Heavyweight! 252 pages, 17 reports and a kilo five (the printer says so...) of end-of-harvest celebrations, trailing fermentations, road trips to the sea, picnics in the vines, drunken dinners, little ones for the road, confidences, fights, full vintages and stashed cuvées, all in bilingual French-English. A smooth program to patch things up with Bordeaux!
