The harvest had been abundant, the wine expected excellent. There was to rejoice in the French province of the Beaujolais in that sunny October 1923. Who could ever say that the facts that followed would have been reported by the press of the time as "the scandals of Clochemerle"? The truth is that if there had been a mayor and progressive may not have been to a manor, a careful rubizzo and indulgent, a school teacher from pestile pestilent and a sour zitella aid named Giustina Putet, no doubt would not have been in that Pretty location nor sacrilege nor sudassons, or at least not to a higher extent to habit. What are the Mayor Piéchut and the Tafardel teacher of so shocking for the small town? Will Miss Putet be able to defend the good name and modesty of the daughters of Mary? And the cured Ponossi will be able to convert to the reason that mass of vineyard rinsers that make up the flock of him? First and most famous of the three volumes of the Clochemerle saga, the memorable vintage of the Beaujolais was a worldwide success from three million copies, translated into 27 languages.
