Abstract:

The Laverzac family gathers twice a year around its patriarch, Aurelien, on its magnificent vineyard in Bordeaux. But this particular summer, a storm of family tension starts to simmer'one that will be far more devastating than anything that could beat down on the grapes. With the vineyard's future at stake, Aurelien, who has dedicated his whole life to it, fights to preserve his domain by choosing his successor. Jules, the youngest of four sons, adopted thirty years earlier, seems to be the only possible candidate. He possesses all of the necessary qualities for managing the vineyard: he is charismatic, an excellent leader, and loves working the land. But why should the adopted son inherit this colossal fortune' The vineyard is full of rumors. And Alexandre, the only son to have settled in the area, takes great offense. Passions flare, fueled by the rivalry between the brothers, the jealousies of the women in their lives, the demands of the land, and the hierarchy of the region where the only things that count are the grape harvest and the next vintage. In the heart of this storm, it is up to Jules to confront the ghosts of his past and face who he is. Through this rich story in the heart of the Bordeaux vineyards, Fran & ccedil;oise Bourdin explores the dramas that threaten the future of one family's name and estate.
