Overview

The garlic-laden winds of change are blowing through the vineyards of Burgundy, and Monsieur Pamplemousse, along with his faithful companion Pommes Frites, will find skullduggery aplenty among the vines.

Under threat from the increasing use of pesticides is the helix pomotia: the humble snail, the main ingredient for escargot Bourgignon.

Meanwhile, on the Canal de Bourgogne, Monsieur Pamplemousse is lecturing a group of international wine buffs on the fruits of the region, a task from which he is distracted by a Marilyn Monroe look-alike. It turns out that skullduggery among the vines will be the least of Monsieur Pamplemousse’s worries.
