With exclusive insight from the owners of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, this monograph traces the fascinating history of their prestigious Burgundy vineyards and rare wines. Romanée-Conti, the world's finest and rarest pinot noir Grand Cru, hails from the gently sloped vineyards of Burgundy's Côtes de Nuits. The story of this unique vineyard dates back some 1500 years and is inextricably tied to its UNESCO world heritage Climat (the ideal position and soil conditions that grace its location) combined with annual weather conditions. Together, they significantly define the character of a given vintage. The saga of successive vintages recounted here--and illuminated through co-owner Aubert de Villaine's detailed harvest reports since 1996--bears witness to the vigilance and thoughtful decision-making throughout the growing cycle and harvest season that is necessary to ensure that the vines produce the finest grapes. This engaging monograph traces the history of winemaking on the site and pays homage to the colorful Prince de Conti who added--in addition to his name--fame and prestige to the wine's already celebrated reputation. This volume offers new insight into this exceptional, cult wine.

Published in 1994 to worldwide acclaim, the first edition of Jancis Robinson's seminal volume immediately attained legendary status, winning every major wine book award including the Glenfiddich and Julia Child/IACP awards, as well as writer and woman of the year accolades for its editor on both sides of the Atlantic. Combining meticulously-researched fact with refreshing opinion and wit, The Oxford Companion to Wine presents almost 4,000 entries on every wine-related topic imaginable, from regions and grape varieties to the owners, connoisseurs, growers, and tasters in wine through the ages; from viticulture and oenology to the history of wine, from its origins to the present day. More than 180 esteemed contributors (including 58 new to this edition) range from internationally renowned academics to some of the most famous wine writers and wine specialists in the world. Now exhaustively updated, this fourth edition incorporates the very latest international research to present 300 new entries on topics ranging from additives and wine apps to WSET and Zelen. Over 60 per cent of all entries have been revised; and useful lists and statistics are appended, including a unique list of the world's controlled appellations and their permitted grape varieties, as well as vineyard area, wine production and consumption by country. Illustrated with almost 30 updated maps of every important wine region in the world, many useful charts and diagrams, and 16 stunning colour photographs, this Companion is unlike any other wine book, offering an understanding of wine in all of its wider contexts—notably historical, cultural, and scientific—and serving as a truly companionable point of reference into which any wine-lover can dip and browse.

The Battle For Wine And Love

An “entertaining and passionate” connoisseur tours the vineyards of Europe and California, arguing for an old-fashioned appreciation of authenticity (The New York Times). The drastic effects that influential wine critic Robert M. Parker Jr. has had on the winemaking industry are best described as wine Parkerization. Many vintners are leaving old techniques behind and turning to chemistry and technology in order to please Parker’s palate. This led to the disappearance of James Beard Foundation Award–winning writer Alice Feiring’s favorite wines—and she was determined to learn why. In a one-woman crusade that will have you wondering what exactly is in your glass, Feiring argues against the tyranny of homogenization, Big Wine, consultants, and, of course, Parker’s infamous one hundred-point scoring system. Traveling through the vineyards of the Loire and Champagne, to Piedmont and Spain, she searches for authentic Barolo, the last old-style Rioja, and the tastiest terroir-driven Champagnes. Feiring reveals what goes into the average bottle—the reverse osmosis, the yeasts and enzymes, the sawdust and oak chips—and why she doesn’t find much to drink in California. She introduces rebel winemakers who are embracing old-fashioned techniques and making wines with individuality and soul. And finally Feiring explains what love’s really got to do with it all, in a delightful read for anyone who truly appreciates the good things in life.

Jules, the celebrated head waiter of the Grand Babylon, was bending formally towards the alert, middle-aged man who had just entered the smoking-room and dropped into a basket-chair in the corner by the conservatory. It was 7.45 on a particularly sultry June night, and dinner was about to be served at the Grand Babylon. Men of all sizes, ages, and nationalities, but every one alike arrayed in faultless evening dress, were dotted about the large, dim apartment. A faint odour of flowers came from the conservatory, and the tinkle of a fountain. The waiters, commanded by Jules, moved softly across the thick Oriental rugs, balancing their trays with the dexterity of jugglers, and receiving and executing orders with that air of profound importance of which only really first-class waiters have the secret. The atmosphere was an atmosphere of serenity and repose, characteristic of the Grand Babylon. It seemed impossible that anything could occur to mar the peaceful, aristocratic monotony of existence in that perfectly-managed establishment. Yet on that night was to happen the mightiest upheaval that the Grand Babylon had ever known.

Informed by wine insider and fourth generation vintner Dr. Laura Catena, Gold in the Vineyards highlights the true stories of love, family, betrayal and war at the origin of twelve of the New and Old World's most famous vineyards. Detailed maps, infographics and stylish illustrations allow the reader to journey through wine history and into the details of vineyard soil and climate - what winemakers call terroir - in order to understand what is at the birth of any great wine. Organized by country and producer, each chapter tells the story of a wine and finishes with maps of the region, vineyard, and illustrated factoids about the wine's rise to fame. Start off meeting the Rothschild family, prisoners of war and world-famous bankers behind the "First of Firsts," Château Lafite Rothschild. Learn why a bottle of the 1787 vintage was sold for $160,000 US dollars or why the Maréchal de Richelieu was convinced that drinking Château Lafite was the secret to eternal youth. Head down to Italy to meet the Antinori family, for the first time, under female leadership since making wine for 26 generations. Learn about the connection between the Antinoris and the Medicis, through the story of the murderous Pietro de Medici. Learn about the French wine classification system and Château d'Yquem, the only Premier Cru Superieur, a wine made from what the French call pourriture noble or noble rot, and whose grapes are harvested only by women. Travel to Spain to meet María José Lépez de Heredia of Viña Tondonia, whose family is known for ageing their wine in barrel for 10-20 years, longer than most, and for refusing to adopt new technologies in their vineyards and winery. Get introduced to Bill Harlan, an adventurer and real estate mogul mentored by Robert Mondavi, who has a 200-year plan to make a Grand Cru and create a European-style wine dynasty in America. Travel back to the 18th Century and witness the fight between a Prince and a Marquise, for the ownership of the exquisite Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. Meet current owner Aubert de Villaine, who spearheaded the effort to turn the Burgundy wine region into a World Heritage Site. Hike the hills of the Mosel in Germany, and understand why its slate soils yield some of the most age-worthy wines in the world from the Riesling variety, born in the Middle Ages. Understand biodynamic winemaking through the eyes of the late Anne-Claude Leflaive, who inspired generations of winemakers around the world to stop using pesticides in their vineyards. Experience the magic from the old vines of the Henschke family, who fled religious persecution in Prussia, and founded Australia's most celebrated vineyard, Hill of Grace. Defy the norms with rule-breaking Italian winemaker Angelo Gaja and his daughter Gaia Gaja, known for bringing about the renaissance of Italy's Barolo region and the Nebbiolo variety. Dive into the dream of a farmer boy Etienne Guigal, who grew up wanting to make wine as a child, and through hard work and fanatical devotion to winemaking created one of France's most collected wines in the Rhône Valley's terraced vineyards. Finish with the story of Dr. Laura Catena's family, Italian immigrants to Argentina, who discovered a magical new place for wine at high altitude in the Andes mountains, and made the Malbec variety famous around the world.
