Passionnant voyage à travers les différentes régions viticoles en France.
Une foule d'anecdotes et une vision de "insider" sur les méthodes de viticulture et vinification - qui mettent en avant la biodynamie et le vin non filtré. Cela donne envie de délaisser les grands châteaux commerciaux au profit de "petites" appellations authentiques à (re)découvrir.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Well written and enjoyable 19 décembre 2013
Par Peter Dorfman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
For any wine lover or Francophile this book will make an excellent read. This is a combination of a travelogue and introduction to French wines written by a man who has had a unique influence on American wine consumption in recent decades. It is well-written and filled with personal insights and comments as well as useful information and contains many enjoyable tales of Lynch's experiences while seeking out wines to import from France.

Although the events recounted took place in the 70s and 80s, they provide wonderful insights into the nature of wine production and the character of local wine producers and the areas they lived in in every major wine-producing region of France. Things may have changed somewhat since the book was written, both in the ways in which Americans consume wine and in the way the French produce it, but there is much that is still recognizable and relevant to our contemporary undstanding. And in any case, reading about the interesting wines and various personalities involved in producing and selling them who Lynch encountered is both educational and very enjoyable.

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in French wines or in understanding this very interesting aspect of French culture.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is an interesting and fun book, especially for me 1 novembre 2016

This is an interesting and fun book, especially for me, as one who loves good wine, but doesn't take the entire wine world too seriously. In the 1960's, living back East, I and my then wife enjoyed French wine which, in those days, was reasonably priced and often memorable. Mr Lynch, proprietor of a famous restaurant in Berkeley, California, began his wine travels in the 1970's and continued them in the '80s. This book tells the story of his adventures and of friends he made among the vignerons of France, mostly in the parts of the country less famous than Burgundy and Bordeaux. Mr. Lynch has his strong views, many of which seem sound to me. Wine going through the Panama Canal or across the country non-refrigerated is ruined. Filtering and fining is not good for wine. Apparently, the 1970's and 1980's saw a falling off in quality because of unfortunate fashions among consumers, which led to many questionable practices in the trade. I apparently experienced a golden age before the decline. This book is a joyful read and one may learn much which adds to one's enjoyment of wine.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Debunking the Full Bodied wines 13 janvier 2014
Par Wong Hing - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
To those who are just beginning to experience the pleasures of the grape, Lynch's book is a down-to-earth, no nonsense guide to the French wines. No longer the exaggerated subtleties of the palette where the minutest sensations are depicted as something obvious for all to taste, no longer the inclination towards full bodied wine that American wine critics have adopted as orthodoxy. Lynch brings us back to the very basics of enjoyment, that wine is a positive addition to the pleasures of the table, not something to be drunk alone. Thus wines should be evaluated for its contribution to a meal rather than a stand alone item, something we should all remember the next time we look a a review in the established wine journals.
Another thing that Lynch almost eulogies is the traditional methods of wine making that is fast disappearing in France. No one can do anything about this now. But one can and does eulogies.
That said, Lynch's tour of the wine route in France is a subjective one and can by no means claim to be a comprehensive coverage of the wines of France. For the experienced drinker who knows his own palette, the book offers refreshing insight (e.g. the section on Bordeaux) into something you suspected all along and is now confirmed. For the beginner drinker it can be too partial, too idiosyncratic to be of much practical use.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fabulous Wine Adventures 24 janvier 2012

Do you know how it is when you are enjoying a book and you don't want it to end??? The characters become friends with whom you want to share years of enjoyment? The locale becomes home and you must get there immediately?

Last night I sadly completed Kermit Lynch's Adventures on the Wine Route: A Wine Buyer's Tour of France.

I'm proud to call myself a Sommelier and a Certified Specialist of Wine, but after reading this book I feel as if I never really understood wine before at all. Oh sure, I knew a lot of facts. I had the knowledge of the different regions, the vines and varietals, the chemistry of how it all works. I was even pretty proud of my palate. But did I truly know WINE????? I'm not so sure.

Lynch's book was written 25 years ago, and yet it all made sense to me. In his book, he travels throughout France in search of new and perhaps undiscovered winemakers and growers who excite him and his palate. He takes the reader all through the fabulous French wine regions and introduces us to characters and wines we will never forget. Each named vintner he describes led me to grab my laptop and search them and their wines on Google. He does include some pictures in his book, which was very considerate of him since 25 years ago we didn't have Google to find these photos for ourselves! I loved discovering each of these "characters" and also learning about what is happening to their wines and wineries now. In many cases the sons, who were very young men we meet in Lynch's travels, are now expertly running many of these Domaines.

I am fortunate to have been to France tasting, but after reading of Lynch's adventures I can't wait to go back! I know that I will look at the experiences very differently now.

I also feel as if I finally "get it". I will never taste wine the same way again. I truly believe that I was overanalyzing it at times, instead of just enjoying the nuances and differences of each wine!

Thank you Kermit Lynch! You have given me so many new wines I desperately want to taste, as well as enhancing the way I look at wine in general.

Even though we've never met, I consider you my new friend!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Kerrmit's Secret 17 septembre 2009
Par Roger Mastrude - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Kermit is the owner of a very successful wine import and sales business. I've been one of his customers since early days when, one gathers from this book, no one in the Burgundy would speak with him.

The secret of his success was stated by someone: He trusts his own taste over wisdom received from others. I started a Slow Food chapter in Santa Cruz, and featured a lot of extremely interesting (to me) wine events. The chapter's motto was "God gave you a sense of taste; others only give you advice." One of the famous 84 Buddhist Lojong slogans is "Of the two judges, choose the principal." That's you. The other one is everybody else.

You should listen to others, of course. How I wish I could have had a canny French father to teach me about wine.

One of the endearing things about Kermit's taste is that he likes to sell (and frequently drinks himself,) low priced wines that just taste good. Even if you could afford it, you wouldn't want to drink fancy wines every day. He likes European-style, informal, inexpensive dry rosé wines for example. Many of these come from Corbiere in the Languedoc region of France. For those who go by reputation, that's like Modesto wine (Gallo before they upscaled.) Those who value taste and don't want to waste money can drink these rosés all day, starting with lunch. That's why Kermit is sometimes called "The Rhone Ranger."

One evening I had saved up enough money to have supper at Chez Panisse. This famous restaurant recommended a Spanish Rosé (from Muga) that they had bought at a local supermarket, at Kermit's suggestion, for $8 per bottle.

Kermit introduced Daumas Gassac wines made by Guibert to the US maybe 25 years ago. These are bold, fabulous, inky red wines from an unfashionable region of France. It came in at $10/bottle. Everyone knew it couldn't be good, because of its other-side-of-the-tracks source. This wine is now often referred to as the "Grand Cru of the Languedoc." The French magazine GaultMillau has called it the "Lafite Rothschild of the Languedoc-Roussillon".

People who don't go with the crowd, but still know what they're doing, are rare. Read this book!
