By visiting Marcel Lapierre in Villié-Morgon, Sébastien Lapaque endeavored to shed light on the approach of one of the main inspirations of French winegrowers who have turned their backs on inflated and standardized wines to produce tasty and natural wines. At a time when their "new wave" wines were making their mark in wine shops, in bistros and even on the tables of canvas restaurants, the winemaker and the writer together retraced an astonishing adventure that began in the late 1970s. .

Several decisive encounters and a new understanding of the hygiene and microbiology of wine prompted Marcel Lapierre to resume working the land and to leave aside insecticides, pesticides and synthetic fertilizers to bring full grapes into the cellar. of vital energy that he devoted himself year after year to vinifying without oenological cosmetics. With a claimed objective: to fight against those who persist in "erasing the memory of taste".

The Author:

Free spirit of a gourmet and pyrotechnic erudition, Sebastien Lapaque is a unique voice in our literary landscape. He is a writer, critic Literary Figaro and columnist at French Wine Review. 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, columns and two volumes of a counter-journal (randomly and often, 2010, and Otherwise and again, 2013). Since At Marcel Lapierre's (Stock, 2004) and The Petit Lapaque of friendly wines (Actes Sud, 2006 and 2009), he imposed on wine a non-conformist discourse combining agriculture, literature, history and ecology and a singular qualification as a naturalist.
