A small town holds fiercely onto its secrets. In the heart
of Gascony, a fire ravages the warehouse of one of
Armagnac’s top estates, killing the master distiller. Wine
expert Benjamin Cooker is called in to estimate the value
But Cooker and his assistant Virgile want to know more. How
did the old alembic explode? Was it really an accident? Why
is the estate owner Baron de Castayrac penniless? How legal
are his dealings? The deeper the Winemaker Detective digs,
the more suspicious characters he uncovers. There is more
than one disgruntled inhabitant in this small town. As we
witness the time-honored process of Armagnac distillation
and the day-to-day activities of the hunt, the market
and the struggle for power and duck confit, we get a
of the traditions of southwestern France where this mystery
of possible arson and murder lies below the surface.
