Présentation de l'éditeur

Even the French admit that Jancis Robinson is the "undisputed mistress of the kingdom of wine" (Le Figaro). Internationally renowned for her work in both television and print, she is the editor of the bestselling Oxford Companion to Wine and has won more than two dozen major awards around the world. Tasting Pleasure is her compelling account of a passion that began while studying at Oxford University.Writing with Julia Child's authority, Elizabeth David's intelligence, and M.F.K. Fisher's verve, Robinson takes us on a journey through the world's finest cellars, most beautiful vineyards, and best restaurants. As she explores the universe of the grape--from Bordeaux to Australia and South Africa to California--we meet scores of colorful, wine-loving characters, including Philippe de Rothschild, Julian Barnes, Francis Ford Coppola, and Julio Gallo.There are many books about producing and rating wine; this one is about enjoying it. Witty, revealing, and knowledgeable, in Tasting Pleasure Jancis Robinson has distilled twenty years in the wine world into a hugely entertaining read.

Biographie de l'auteur

Among her nine wine books are the bestselling Oxford Companion to Wine (editor) and Jancis Robinson?s Wine Course, the basis of a five-hour 1996 PBS-TV series. She lives in London.

A Must For Fans of Jancis and of Wine! 27 avril 2001
Par Simon Doherty - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have been shocked to see Jancis Robinson's books and videos being slated by Americans. Maybe her European style and English stlye of writing aggrevates Americans. I found this book absolutely charming! (Then again, I am European!)It's not a guide to wine in itself but more a fascinating tale of Jancis' involvement with wine and it's producers. If you bear this in mind when you order it, you will not be disappointed. Her turn of phrase makes this the ideal book to read whilst sipping a nice glass of wine!

Just a Wine Lover? 22 avril 2004
Par K. M. Pollard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I confess to a liking for books from those who are knowledgeable when it comes to wine. Perhaps it is more correct to say books that provide me with knowledge and personal insights. Jancis Robinson's "Tasting Pleasure" is a particularly insightful look into the birth and growth of a wine connoisseur. In some respects the stars align perfectly for Ms Robinson as she rises, very quickly, from tour guide to assistant editor of the British wine trade magazine Wine & Spirit in 1975, to Master of Wine in 1984, to author and TV presenter. However it is also clear that the considerable knowledge and experience that she gained during these years contributed significantly to the evolution of her career and to her current status. She has been privileged to taste some extraordinary wines in the company of some extraordinary wine tasters; Michael Broadbent to name just one. It is easy for those of us who are unlikely to rise to such heights of pleasure to fall into the trap of dismissing such experiences as conceited ramblings. But it should be appreciated that access to such wine completes the spectrum of tasting experiences available to the connoisseur; those of us who taste the great and the near great have to be satisfied with being somehow incomplete. What is interesting is that Ms Robinson prefers to call herself a Wine Lover, that is something we can all claim to be.

A Matter Of Perspective 1 septembre 2004
Par David B. Erickson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
If you want tasting notes and rankings, pick up Robert Parker or Hugh Johnson. This is a book about a life in wine, not a book about wine.

"Tasting Pleasure" is a ramble through Jancis Robinson's ascent into the heavens of the wine world. She's been very lucky, and has supported that luck with intelligence and hard work. In other hands, this story might have been insufferable; but Robinson's greatest gift may be her ability to keep a sense of perspective while progressing from one table laden with fine bottles to the next. She is well aware of the essential frivolity of what she does for a living, and also well aware of her good fortune.

N.B.: Unless you're totally fascinated with Jancis Robinson, there are sections that are easily skippable. The book remains, even so, a worthwhile addition to your wine library.

Reads Almost like a Classic Adventure Novel! 25 avril 2000
Par Antonio Arch - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
"Tasting Pleasure" is the wonderful story of a girl who combined the proverbial reporter's pad and pencil, youthful curiosity and zest for life, with a talented and trainable palette, to mold for herself an internationally recognised career and the post as the undisputed Queen of Wine. The story itself is a rather exciting one and takes the reader from Robinson's native London to the great winemaking houses of France, to the wine revolution in Mondavi's California to the established houses of Australia.
The truly wonderful aspect of this book is the rather long list of vintages and tastings that the author recants the stories of, most notably the wonderful story of her tasting of a bottle of wine from the cellar of none other than Thomas Jefferson.
Tasting pleaseure is a wonderful story of a woman's quick wit and creativity that brought about a truly amazing career and international recognition. Highly recommended.

A pleasant read 5 février 2013
Par JEMD - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
A little slow in parts, however overall an enjoyable read. Of particular interest to French wine buffs as, understandably, a great deal of the book revolves around those regions. Some fascinating insights into the wonderful world of wine.
