Comic of the week
Bodegas - Vol. 2 - Rioja


Having identified who is hiding behind enigmatic "El Ausente", a wine recognized for its exceptional tasty qualities, young journalist Geraldine Leroy had finally succceded in getting an appointment with him for an interview. But the meeting was shortened by an unfortunate phone call that compelled the interviewee to go.
Frustrated and still without news after two months waiting, the pretty redhead decides to revive her journalistic inquest while keeping within the law… if possible. She contacts the steward of Cruz property at Rioja but he is under instructions not to disclose anything. By dint of persuasion, she is allowed to participate to the incoming grape harvest and sees there an inkling to see through the mystery of El Ausente.
But beforehand, she has to cross Jorge Cruz' path again and this will not be easy matter…
End of Corbeyran's new dyptich (Châteaux Bordeaux, In vino veritas) devoted to Spanish wine and pictured by Francisco Ruizge. We find here again the pugnacious journalist who, following a last-minute event, is to start off again to the conquest of her subject and of the person likely to solve it. A large part of this album is alloted to the young redheaded reporter who will move heaven and earth to get her way. What follows is a voluntary and impetuous course allowing again to come across some charismatic characters such as the friendly estate-steward, silent Jorge or beautiful Sara Valle.
It boils down nonetheless that this second episode, fluid in its development, steers a passionate quest to a successful end. Efficiently adorned with a small dose of suspense and mystery, without reaching a gripping level of surprise, it aptly supports the story and renders it emotionally appealing. The graphic part carried out by Francisco Ruizge is still the same, marked by the well weighted-up effects of a dynamic proportional stroke supporting with benevolence the dithering journalist. As for sets and characters they are sufficient in themselves and the message could hardly be clearer.
A most pleasant end of story on reading, combining mystery and passion for wine…
In short, a good quality cartoon with excellent pictures and a pleasant scenario, to be consumed without moderation.
