From Constantinople to the King’s Climbing
Vine in Fontainebleau, along the banks of the Loire River, exploring
Burgundy and the vineyards of French-speaking Switzerland, the
mysteries of Chasselas are revealed, keeping step with each period
in time. A camera has never looked so closely at a grape, geneticists
have never listened so closely to the heartbeat of a grape variety.
From seed to Grand Cru, from the infinitely small to geography
worldwide, this is the history of Chasselas as you’ve never seen it.
