First Growth / Premiers Crus (12)

premiercruBursting with sumptuous cinematography depicting the vineyards of Burgundy, an assured cast and a feel-good script, First Growth is vintage French film-making about the art of making wine. Charlie, the son of a wine grower, left his vineyard home to become a renowned Parisian oenologist and the author of a hugely successful wine guide. When Charlie returns to help his family’s failing enterprise he struggles with temperamental weather, a delicate grape and the doubts of his father (Gérard Lanvin). Can the wine critic become a wine producer?
