Simon's Gospel - a sinful guide to wines and wine trade 22 septembre 2012
Par Golovanov Alexey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is the best introduction to wines and wine trade (in brief) ever written; the small book is worth its weight in gold. A priceless crash course written by the last "il condottiere" and adventurer of wine trade, who ages ago took over a small Suffolk brewery, and turned it into a shrine of encyclopedic knowledge and good taste. Trust me - the gentleman in question knows his grapes (and likes them). A very dangerous book - every time I re-read it (and I do it very often), I start drooling, and I am desperate for a drink or two.
A really concentrated (like good Armagnac) and talented work, miles ahead of tasteless verbiage of self-appointed connoisseurs, who like whores and false prophets are peddling around lies about labels, and not wines.
That's the real key from the gates which might lead you to alcoholism and bankruptcy, but on the way it'll save you tons of money through preventing from buying overpriced plonk "a la mode".
This book goes well together with another one, "A Pike In The Basement" A Pike in the Basement: Tales of a Hungry Traveller, " the tales by a hungry traveler ", and it'll make you feel hungry too - it is juicy, succulent, spicy, tasty, with valuable hints for gourmets and some awesome recipes.
I think that Simon Loftus is one of the best preachers of a not so innocent vice of good eating and drinking. And he is as good in telling about his travels (as good as Bill Bryson and Peter Mayle, i.e. top ranking authors). Apart from that, keep in mind that he is a graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge, where he read History and Fine Arts, thus any reader should feel safe that the writer won't make five spelling mistakes in a four letter word, and will use more words than an average state leader, politician or TV presenter.
The book is written by a sinner for the sinners, but without a sin there is no repentance, and repentance leads to salvation.
By the way, as an ex-rocker and retired professional alcoholic, I am not able to understand even 1/10 of the niceties about all these noble drinks (although I tried hard, and used the gospel of Simon as tutorial), but I admire greatly the book
