Overall it is laughable as often as it is interesting. I've been to Burgundy twice, so I enjoyed saying "Hey, I've been there" when they showed various spots. Since I had never heard of the guy, I went to a couple places where non-pro enthusiasts rate wines. His wines get strangely low ratings, especially given the apparent quality of the vineyards he either bought or from where he sources grapes. They are priced accordingly, so okay.
The funniest part is the company that sells biodynamic "solutions" to the vineyards. L'huile du serpent. More characters? And more and more and they cannot count so many characters so little time.

Pascal Marchand, an aspiring poet from Montreal, arrived in the mythical land of Burgundy to work the harvest at age 21. Enchanted by the region, he settled there and embarked on an unlikely path to winemaking stardom. Now over 30 years later, he is renowned as an artist and innovator, finding his inspiration in the ancient techniques of the Cistercian monks who meticulously studied and refined Burgundy's winemaking in the middle ages. Shot over his most difficult year ever, the catastrophic 2016 season which saw devastating frosts, hailstorms and disease in the vineyards, the film is both a love letter and a cautionary tale, as winemakers like Pascal must face the unpredictable and destructive consequences of climate change.
