Revue de presse

"Through the dramas of their wine-drinking characters, the (Tadashi Agi) instructs readers on how to taste wine. It’s hilarious, for sure, when a young woman swoons over a man’s decanting skills, but it’s also a great way to draw attention to the technical proficiency of a beautiful pour without getting too technical. And that’s what’s truly extraordinary about Drops of God: It makes learning about wine—which, let’s face it, can be a totally tedious thing for the non-obsessed—really fun... Seriously, this is juicy stuff!" -- GILT

“Absolute page-turner… It’s the sweeping two-page illustrations of taste-transporting moments (a shirt-tearing jam by rock band Queen, a maiden fleeing through strawberry fields) that better capture wine’s great allure than a thousand dry scribblings on history and weather conditions.” —Time Out New York

“An almost psychedelically beautiful work… It’s like Speed Racer crossed with Wine Spectator.” —The Daily Dish (LA Times)

“Visually stunning and effortlessly entertaining… To top it off, reading Drops is a trippy literary experience… Don’t be surprised if you crush this book in one night. It’s pretty impossible to put down once you pick it up.” —Bottlenotes (The Daily Sip)

“I have already ordered the second volume (out in December) and I guess that in terms of reviews that is a definitive statement.” —Wine Psych

“Presents some complex wine topics in an easy to understand manner, without talking down to the consumer… I urge all wine lovers to take a look, with an open mind, at The Drops of God. Give it a chance and you might be surprised at how much you enjoy it.”
—The Passionate Foodie

“Penchants for French wines drive the selection of vinos described with dramatic, often fanatical detail.” —Wine Enthusiast

A solid continuation to an ambitious series 15 décembre 2011
Par J. C. Kinder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Manga (Japanese comic books) are a bit different from American comic books, in that they cover a much wider range of topics. There are, for example, extremely detailed and accurate sports manga, gambling manga, educational manga and, most relevant here, cooking manga. It's not all people with enormous eyes and stupid hair punching each other. This manga focuses on wine, and treats it with an impressive balance of seriousness and humor.

The central conceit is that the main character has a superb ability to taste and appreciate wine, but no experience drinking or buying it. It is through his eyes that the reader is introduced to various concepts in wine. That the teaching is delivered via a combination of superb art and cheerful humor certainly helps.

This volume focuses on two main stories- a restaurant which must impress a stern critic with it's pairing of wine with each dish, and a competition between French and Italian wines at reasonable prices. This calls for many tastings, discussions of terrior, the villages and grand crus of Burgundy and Bordaux, and a rather amusing discussion of introverted pino noirs. As opposed to the extroverted pinos of California or New Zealand, for example. In context, it all makes sense, and I certainly have found that some wines strike me as cheerful and approachable.

My only critique is that these books have a profound bias towards French wine. Its not that the authors dismiss wines from other regions (in this book the main character says that he is blown away by the quality of an Italian wine) its just that they like French wine better. They have said as much in interviews. Rather wonderfully, they compared California reds to Americans- big, cheerful and just a little too friendly for Japanese people. French wines are a bit more restrained and take more effort go get to know, a more comfortable arrangement for a reserved Japanese person.

I rate these books so highly because I know just enough about wines to know I don't know much at all. These books put into words and images a great deal I have often felt or thought about wine, and inspired me to learn even more. I strongly recommend it to anyone with even a passing interest in wine.
update of oishinbo but focus on wine 15 octobre 2014
Par NiQ - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
it's really an updated version of oishinbo but emphasis on the wine. However, i learned more about food & wine reading oishinbo as it is so spot on[the most amazing part is that the info was written in the 80s & way ahead of its time as it is still true today]. This novel rambles about the wine but it's again is repetitive in what makes it a good wine & the imagery is somewhat stupid & hokey.

In oishinbo wine, it states that a lot of wine & sake by big beweries are processed by coal filtering which makes every wine taste the same. Consistency=artificial=fake. So I wonder when this series will bring this fact about reasonable price wines??

I'm anything but a wine connoisseur but this manga makes learning about wines and what make them distinctive fun and interesting. Though the format reminds me of Oishinbo (a classic food manga), the art is a little sharper and the story enjoys a few more twists. If you like wine, this is for you. If you like good manga, you will find a lot to admire here.
Great series, well informed and really fun to read! 8 octobre 2013

Fun story 22 mars 2013

After years of reading wine journals/textbooks and attending and conducting tastings, this is a refreshing fictional story. Best read since "love by the glass"
