Water, river, wine with mixed destinies. A link between the vineyards of Bordeaux, the Gironde estuary is a mirror where the poetry of the houses bordering it can be read in the open air. Left bank in Margaux, Château Rauzan-Ségla. Right bank in Saint-Emilion, Château Canon. This singular work approaches with an unprecedented visual writing these grands crus classés and their intimate strengths. For more than a year, five renowned photographers, Patrick Messina, Jérôme Bryon, Brice Braastad, Thomas Dhellemmes and Luc Manago have set their lenses around the properties of the CHANEL house in order to express through their artistic gaze what unites them and what distinguishes them both. The pen of Patrick Wald Lasowski, both historian and novelist, navigates between their distinctive universes to extract their substance. Heart of the story, the estuary is a mysterious, elusive universe, which begins an atypical pagination going up its shores. A special book for lovers of art and great wines.
Patrick Wald Lasowski, author Historian, specialist in the 18th century, Patrick Wald Lasowski is also a poet and novelist, renowned for his stylistic precision. In his various works, he has no equal in evoking the density of a period or a style and navigating through eras he has not known. In Wald Lasowski's books, the "By the same author" page looks like a list of diplomas, as the fields of his works are numerous. Passionate about History, this University Professor does not hesitate to revisit it in his texts and short stories with an alert, atmospheric style. A true storyteller, never a pedant, he proves that the novel is a good companion for great History. Sharp, without unnecessary passion or excess, Wald Lasowski knows how to be surgical when he writes about the treasures of the greatest jewelry houses such as Van Cleef & Arpels or Boucheron, or, for the first time, about the two historic properties Château Canon and Rauzan-Ségla. .
