of Grand Cru
Grand Cru is a beautiful portrait of legendary winemaker Pascal Marchand. As a twenty-something aspiring poet from Montreal, Marchand became so enchanted by the Burgundy region that he picked up and left to work the Harvest—and never looked back. Three decades later, his passion and innovative techniques—including biodynamic winemaking—have propelled him to international stardom. Shot over his most difficult year, the 2016 season, the film is both a love letter to the art of wine and a cautionary tale as winemakers like Pascal must face the unpredictable forces of climate change.
