Noble Rot: A Bordeaux Wine Revolution
Publisher: W. W. Norton & CompanyFormat: Paperback
For wine lovers the world over, Bordeaux is the center of the universe. But in the past two decades, revolutionaries have stormed its traditional bastions, making their mark-and their fortunes-modernizing the production and marketing of wine. “Noble Rot” introduces us to the figures who epitomize the changes sweeping Bordeaux-the noble family behind Chateau d'Yquem; a stonemason turned winemaker whose wine, made in a garage, sells for $100 a bottle; the Maryland-based critic Robert Parker, whose opinion routinely makes or breaks a wine; the New World operations that have used branding to undercut Bordeaux's supremacy-and delves into the mysteries of the legendary classification of 1855.
