Denis Pommier is a winemaker near Chablis, in Burgundy. Since 2008, he has put away pesticides and glyphosate. Two years later, his vineyard won the title of "best chardonnay in the world". His conversion to organic is a success.
He did not imagine at the time how much his decision to reconnect with nature would be trying for him, for his wife Isabelle, his children and the estate. Frost, hail, mildew, heat wave... Starting with the 2016 vintage, the elements were unleashed and jeopardized his commitment. At the cost of enormous sacrifices, he faces, without giving up his organic label.
By retracing a year of work in the vineyards - from pruning to harvesting - through the story of Denis Pommier, this book paints a powerful and sensitive portrait of a winegrower and takes the reader into the daily life and behind-the-scenes of viticulture. It also reveals the work and sometimes bitter difficulties that a bottle of organic wine contains.
Denis Pommier has been based in Poinchy since 1990, in the heart of one of the most prestigious vineyards in the world, now certified organic.
Antonio Rodriguez is a journalist and author of the blog ChablisNews.
