Descriptions du produit

"Wine is, above all, about pleasure. Those who make it ponderous make it dull...If you keep an open mind and take each wine on its own terms; there is a world of magic to discover." So wrote the renowned wine expert Kermit Lynch in the introduction to Adventures on the Wine Route, his ultimate tour of France, especially its wine cellars. The "magic" of wine is Lynch's subject as he takes the reader on a singular journey through the Loire, Bordeaux, the Languedoc, Provence, Northern and Southern Rhone, and Burgundy. In Adventures on the Wine Route, the wine lover will find wisdom without a trace of pretension and hype. As Victor Hazan wrote, "In Kermit Lynch's small, true, delightful book there is more understanding about what wine really is than in everything else I have read." Praise for Lynch and for Adventures on the Wine Route has not ceased since the book's initial publication a quarter century ago. In 2007, The New York Times called it "one of the finest American books on wine." And in June 2012, The Wall Street Journal proclaimed it "the best book on the wine business." Full of vivid portraits of French vintners, memorable evocations of the French countryside, and, of course, vibrant descriptions of French wines, this new edition of Adventures on the Wine Route updates a modern classic for our times.

entertaining, personal look into wine 31 décembre 2013
Par James Mosewood - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Kermit writes a heartfelt, often funny and entertaining, personal account of his travels within France as a wine importer in the 1980's. When looking for wines to import, he looks for artisanal wines that are made by winemakers that respect tradition and emphasize quality over quantity, while keeping prices reasonable for everyday drinking. Much of the book is his experiences with these winemakers, many humorous anecdotes, but also discusses serious decisions vintners are faced with as land changes hands, new generations take over, technology becomes available, and market trends change. Aside from the ascetic values of the wines, Kermit puts great focus on the personality of the winemakers he meets, which he believes greatly influence the resulting product.

What this book is NOT is a wine guide or a tourist map. Kermit briefly touches upon the differences between wines grown in different regions that he visits, but it is hardly exhaustive or consistent. For example, he does a good job distinguishing between the different appellations of Northern Rhone, but does little to detail the Bordeaux sub-regions. But remember that this is a personal account, so don't expect encyclopedic coverage.

The 25th Anniversary edition adds an extra chapter discussing the trends of the industry since the original 1988 publication, updates on some of the winemakers, and Kermit's personal opinion on natural wines (spoiler: "natural" does not mean good.)

Recommended for anyone who loves wine and wants to know a little more about what it takes to get it to your local store.

Needs a map 24 avril 2014
Par Kathleen Dur - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The addition of a map introducing each wine area of France would have added immensely: Loire, Bordeaux etc with a few of the villages/ towns mentioned that the author visited.
The purchaser needs to know this is still the 1988 edition 'OC the book with an epilogue of sorts. It is not am updated wine route of Loire etc. Not sure it is that helpful.

A Love Story on Wine 26 mai 2014
Par studebhawk - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Written by a wine professional, Kermit Lynch wrote an ode to the fine art of wine making for us all to enjoy. In the process, he wrote of a time and place in France that has changed dramatically 25 years later. His French contacts are the small family owned vineyards that produce high quality, small yield old growth wine using the old French traditional methods. In the update written for the 25th anniversary edition, he brings us up to date with some of the characters we loved from the original edition. He regrets the passing of his old friends and, with it, the old school methods and traditions of traditional French winemaking. He regrets the profusion of the mass produced wine that we get today using short cut methods to produce large volumes of wine devoid of that signature French “taste”.
In “Adventures on the Wine Route”, Kermit Lynch wrote an ode to a way of life in French wine, of a time and place that was special and in so doing he wrote a love story for us all.

Beautifully written, a great story and lots of insights to learn from! 31 janvier 2014

The more you learn about wine, the more you realize you don't know. I'd say I am an advanced wine lover but have recently realized how little I know. I learned so much from this book, things that you wouldn't necessarily know you didn't know, things you wouldn't be able to find in a wine bible.

I always knew I didn't like so2 in my wine and I always thought I liked unfiltered wine. I was able to get a deep understanding of why this is and gained a new appreciation for wine making techniques and natural wines.

I am also an aspiring importer and am taking my first trip to France (for business) this spring and feel much more prepared than before. Still lots to learn, but its of course a fun process!

Anyone could appreciate this book.
An insider's view of modern wine-making process in France, by a long-time insider. 16 juin 2015

Got thru about half of it. Lots of info, but most of it is about winemakers for whom the average reader could only HOPE to meet. I read the book during my trip through Provence, the Chateneuf-du-Pape region and lower Burgundy. I was able to take away a few key concepts, but for the average wine-loving traveler, Kermit Lynch's itinerary is an unobtainable dream. Kermit Lynch writes about his LONG-TIME relationships with individual vintners. He does discuss current practices which adversely affect the quality of estate-produced wines in these regions (on-site bottling that saps the character of the wine, which seems to be ubiquitous in the aforementioned regions) leading me to believe that most of the so-called Burgundy and Chateneuf-du-Pape appellations are nothing more than patrimony designed to preserve the status quo, but not the quality of the product. Despite my take-away and incomplete reading I'd still recommend.
