Clarity and Finesse 2 novembre 2010
Par Terri J. Rice - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
"At their best, wine grapes give voice to the earth."

Matt Kramer does a great job of mingling the history of wine with the enjoyment of wine tasting. He thoroughly explains in a very engaging manner, just what it is that we are tasting when we say we like a wine. Further, he says it's fine to simply like a wine but when you combine your preference with knowledge you can begin to appreciate wine more fully. You can, for example, not like the taste of a particular wine and yet know that it is an excellent wine in spite of your dislike.

He's not keen of the judging of wines. Judging wines by scoring them on a 1-100 scale makes wine seem mechanistic as though it were a precise manufactured substance that can be assigned an exact grade and that it deserves one as well. This approach does not allow wine to make sense; it just makes it orderly and competitive.

What is lacking is a more fundamental sense of what makes a good wine good. Matt Kramer spells it out for us with clarity and finesse.

Intelligent intro to wine 12 février 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The wine writer for the Portland Oregonian presents a truly intelligent introduction to wine, an excellent starting point for a novice who wants to ramp up his knowledge quickly and well, and a good read even for those who think they know it all

Essential. 13 janvier 2013
Par Matteo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is an essential book for anyone with an interest, from casual to professional, in wine. If you're looking for a book that applies meaningless rating systems and uses clumsy metaphors and flavour associations ( *cough* Robert Parker *cough* James Halliday *cough*), then this isn't the book for you. However, if you are interested in forming or complementing an understanding of wine as a historical and ongoing cultural and culinary product, then it is an essential addition to your library.
Good but Not Great 21 juin 2012
Par Zachary Zimko - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
First off I would say that this is NOT a bad book. It is a reasonable guide to wine and will give you some basic facts. My main complaint is that while the book gives you a comprehensive overview of wine regions, storing wine, and pairing wine, it barely touches on grape varieties and actually tasting wine. It would be a very good book for an aspiring connoisseur, who wishes to go above and beyond simple tasting. For those who wish to receive a basic understanding of main grape/wine varieties and how to taste/classify wines, there are much better books available. The book has some very useful knowledge and discusses the intriguing topic of connoisseurship, but lacks the essential background information for anyone starting out in the wine world.

Elegantly written 27 décembre 2004
Par CAB - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
An elegant book about an elegant subject. Learned a lot and was intellectually engaged. Not a thorough primer on wine or tasting but rather a thorough discourse on the important topics in wine today.
