Ein geheimes Paradies auf Erden, das ist das Périgord. Oder vielmehr war, denn die Weinberge der Gegend sollen von einem amerikanischen Weinunternehmer aufgekauft werden. Es gärt im Tal, in den alten Freund- und Seilschaften, und in einem Weinfass findet man etwas völlig anderes als Wein – eine Leiche.

For wine lovers, Burgundy is the holy grail, with wineries that have long produced incomparable vin de terroir. But Burgundy is as famous for its idiosyncrasies as for its rare vintages.

In individual entries, Norman profiles each Grand Cru vineyard, providing a listing of its principal owners, origins, topography/geology, the best sources for wine, and more.

Terroir

The Role of Geology, Climate and Culture in the Making of French Wines

Author: James E. Wilson (Geologist)

Publisher: Univ of California Press

ISBN: 9780520219366

Category: Cooking

Page: 336

View: 3071

The French word terroir is used to describe all the ecological factors that make a particular type of wine special to the region of its origin. James E. Wilson uses his training as a geologist and his years of research in the wine regions of France to fully examine the concept of terroir. The result combines natural history, social history, and scientific study, making this a unique book that all wine connoisseurs and professionals will want close at hand. In Part One Wilson introduces the full range of environmental factors that together form terroir. He explains France's geological foundation; its soil, considered the "soul" of a vineyard; the various climates and microclimates; the vines, their history and how each type has evolved; and the role that humans--from ancient monks to modern enologists--have played in viticulture. Part Two examines the history and habitat of each of France's major wine regions. Wilson explores the question of why one site yields great wines while an adjacent site yields wines of lesser quality. He also looks at cultural influences such as migration and trade and at the adaptations made by centuries of vignerons to produce distinctive wine styles. Wilson skillfully presents both technical information and personal anecdotes, and the book's photographs, maps, and geologic renderings are extremely helpful. The appendices contain a glossary and information on the labeling of French wines. With a wealth of information explained in clear English, Wilson's book enables wine readers to understand and appreciate the mystique of terroir.

The updated edition of the classic introduction to wine for everyone, by Master Sommelier Andea Immer Robinson. Great Wine Made Simple established Andrea Immer Robinson as America’s favorite wine writer. Avoiding the traditional and confusingly vague wine language of “bouquet” and “nose,” it instead discussed wine in commonsense terms. Now, thoroughly revised, this edition lives up to its title by making selecting and enjoying wine truly straightforward. You will never again have to fear pricey bottles that don’t deliver, snobby wine waiters, foreign terminology, or encyclopedic restaurant wine lists. You’ll be able to buy or order wine with confidence—and get just the wine you want—by learning the “Big Six” basic styles (which comprise 80 percent of today’s top-selling wines), how they taste, how to read any wine label, and how to pick a wine off a restaurant menu. Ten new flavor maps show what to expect from climates around the world. A refreshing blend of in-depth knowledge and accessibility, Great Wine Made Simple is a welcome resource for those who are intrigued by wine but don’t know where to start and makes it easy to master the ins and outs of choosing a wine that you and your guests will love—on any budget.

Burgundy

A Comprehensive Guide to the Producers, Appelatio

Author: Robert M. Parker

Publisher: Simon and Schuster

ISBN: 1439142106

Category: Cooking

Page: 864

View: 8167

Burgundy is a fitting monument to the region that is capable of producing, in Parker’s words, “the world's most majestic, glorious, and hedonistic red and white wine.” With the publication of his classic volumes, Bordeaux and The Wines of the Rhône Valley and Provence, together with the several editions of his Wine Buyer’s Guide, Robert M. Parker, Jr., has emerged as America’s most influential and articulate authority on wine. Whether he writes of the fabled French châteaux or of lesser-known growers and producers from around the world, his books have proved invaluable reading for connoisseurs and neophytes alike, for they contain not only hard-headed, frank analysis but an undisguised and positively contagious enthusiasm for his subject. In this book, his most ambitious and comprehensive to date, Parker offers an extraordinary guide to the growers, appellations, and wines of Burgundy, the viticultural region in eastern France that produces the most exotic, sought-after, expensive, and frequently least understood wines in the world. Like its predecessors, Bordeaux and The Wines of the RhOne Valley and Provence, Parker’s Burgundy has all the makings of a classic. It is a beautifully produced book, and it boasts more than thirty specially made color maps, with those depicting the individual appellations drawn in such exquisite detail that each and every vineyard is visible. Burgundy is a fitting monument to the region that is capable of producing, in Parker”s words, “the world’s most majestic, glorious, and hedonistic red and white wine.”

Plötzlich erwachen in Willms verletzter Beamtenseele lang vergessene Jagdinstinkte: Rivale! Frau! Beute! Und so entwickelt er einen perfiden Plan, um den Kollegen in die Pfanne zu hauen und doch noch ans Ziel zu gelangen. Doch was als kleine Intrige beginnt, verselbstständigt sich auf ungeahnte Weise.
