By visiting Marcel Lapierre in Villié-Morgon, Sébastien Lapaque set out to shed light on the approach of one of the main inspirers of French winegrowers who have turned their backs on swollen and standardized wines to produce tasty and natural wines. At a time when their "new wave" wines were making their mark in wine merchants, in bistros and even at the table in canvas restaurants, the winegrower and the writer together retraced an astonishing adventure which began at the end of the 1970s. .

Several decisive meetings and a new understanding of hygiene and wine microbiology prompted Marcel Lapierre to resume working the land and to leave aside insecticides, pesticides and synthetic fertilizers to return to the cellar with a full grape. of vital energy that he has worked year after year to vinify without oenological cosmetics. With a claimed objective: to fight against those who strive to "erase the memory of taste".

The author

Free spirit of a gourmet and pyrotechnic erudition, Sébastien Lapaque is a unique voice in our literary landscape. He is a writer, critic at Literary Figaro and columnist at the Wine Review of France. Author of four novels published by Actes Sud (including The Convergence of the Trade Winds, 2012, and Postcard theory, 2014), he has also published essays, chronicles and two volumes of a counter-journal (Randomly and often, 2010, and Otherwise and again, 2013). Since At Marcel Lapierre (Stock, 2004) and The Petit Lapaque of the wines of friends (Actes Sud, 2006 and 2009), he imposed on wine a non-conformist discourse combining agriculture, literature, history and ecology and a singular qualification of naturalist.
