Description du produit

Revue de presse

"His enthusiasm for underdog grapes, regions and winemakers makes him a pleasant guide along the back roads of France." --Thomas Matthews, Wine Spectator

...the commitment of those involved in the painstaking business of making wine is admirable. Having been baptised in a trailer of grapes after a week s harvesting in Alsace, he sees wine as part of a cycle of life, as natural and childbirth and death . Commitment and passion, it seems, are the most important ingredients in a good wine; when these are lacking, it is nothing more than a commodity. --Giles Kime, TLS, 29th May 2009

"If you think you would enjoy having a conversation with a passionate French wine craftsman, dive into Robert Camuto's delicious new book. I spend a good part of my life underground in France, and everything Camuto relates of his adventures rings true. And to those of you tiring of the varietal bandwagon, here's an escape route." --Kermit Lynch, wine importer and author of Adventures on the Wine Route: A Wine Buyer s Tour of France --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Présentation de l'éditeur

Robert V. Camuto's interest in wine turned into a passion when he moved to France and began digging into local soils and cellars. "Corkscrewed" recounts Camuto's journey through France's myriad regions - and how the journey brought about a profound change in everything he believed about wine. The world of great wines was once dominated by great Bordeaux ch teaux. As those ch teaux were bought up by moguls and international corporations, the heart of French winemaking moved into the realm of small producers, whose wines reflect the stunning diversity of regional environment, soil, and culture - terroir.In this book we follow Camuto across France as he works harvesting grapes in Alsace, learns about wine and bombs in Corsica, and eats and drinks his way through the world's greatest bacchanalia in Burgundy. Along the route he discovers a new generation of winemakers who have rejected chemicals, additives, and technologically altered wines. His book charts an odyssey into this new world of French wine, a world of biodynamic winegrowing, herbal treatments, lunar cycles, and grape varieties long ago dismissed as 'difficult'. A celebration of the diversity that makes French wine more than a mere commodity, Camuto's work is a delightful look beyond the supermarket to the various flavours offered by the true vintners of France. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The soul of winemaking revealed 13 octobre 2008
Par J. Loeffler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
When I lived in Napa, I saw the sad, inevitable industrial takeover of the wine community. Now the moneymen mass produce thousands of acres of mediocre cabernet or zinfandel in the Central Valley and slap a label with the word "Napa" on it to inflate the price. They doctor their mediocrity with wood chips and flavored yeasts. Some regions of France are losing their integrity to this bottom feeding mentality. Robert Camuto, like Kermit Lynch and director Jonathan Nossiter (Mondovino), seeks out the people who are wrestling the soul of wine away from the people and places that would sell it to the highest bidder. Corkscrewed hits it on the head with his uneasiness at the rote tasting sessions at Vinexpo. From there he takes us with him on his voyages of discovery, not as an expert but as a wine lover. He conjures images of the real, the genuine, the natural and the heartfelt in each of his visits to various wine regions in France. His comical, bacchus-possessed visit to the most over-the-top wine event in the world, the auction at les Hospices de Beaune, makes you realize that the Burgundians have somehow maintained their integrity in spite of the world wide clamor for pinot noir. His journey with the peasant (et fier d'etre!) in the Ardêche and that region's rediscovery of chatus, provides hope. The stories and survival of these intense, impassioned winemakers are essential for any wine lover.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Love Letters to Wine 14 mai 2009
Par A. Nelson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
If what you worry about when you worry about wine is drowning in rivers and lakes and seas of homogeneous and technologically altered plonk ("a perpetual assembly line of high-octane wines that tend to taste alike"), help is on the way. Well, maybe not "help" per se, but inspiration.

Although you will most likely want to run right out and buy wines from all the producers profiled in the book, that isn't the point. The author is not a professional wine critic or wine speculator; he's a passionate observer and insightful investigator. He also loves wine and all that it can mean in the context of food, culture, society and history.

With an often elegant, sometimes eclectic, but always very personal style, Camuto demonstrates a truly inspired sensitivity and commitment to his subject. There's also something "deeper" in the book that I can't quite put my finger on yet but that goes beyond any prosaic comments about natural wine or devoted growers. Perhaps it's the notion that wine IS food, sustenance, and a catalyst for experiences that are even more significant and profound than what transpires in the vineyard or at the dinner table. At the very least, Camuto delivers "a collection of love letters to wine," as a Seattle reviewer aptly described it. That alone is more than enough for me.

"Corkscrewed" is the last in a rather long list of wine books that I've read over the past decade and more. I wish it had been the first.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wine and human interest 25 février 2009
Par F. J. Raskopf - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Corkscrewed, although promoted as a deep insight into the French wine
culture is more than that, yes indeed, much more than a tome for
oenophiles. Certainly It is a perceptive narrative of the fascinating
array of wines in different sections of France. All revealed by
someone who is profoundly knowledgeable of the differences and nuances
of those differences in various wines produced in a number of sections
of France. But it reaches far beyond being just a well written
discourse on such wines. It is made up of fascinating human interest
vignettes about those involved in various aspects of French grape
raising and wine production. These are the people the tourist never
meets, or more importantly, never gets to know as friends. This is a
tribute to the author's far above average writing and perception
capability. The book is filled with the escapades of this "seeker of
wine growers." The reader really gets to know these people, many of
whom are the latest extension of families who have been in the wine
producing occupation for years, yes, even centuries. You follow the
author as he travels from region to region, in many cases unveiling
wines known to only a few. The human interest element reflects a writer
who has been a skilled and observant journalist for years. Just one
example, when he decides to become a "grape picker" for a week. The
reader shares the joy of a dedicated wine aficionado getting involved
in producing his favorite libation. And you can feel the aches and
pains of working from sun up to sundown in the vineyards. And even the
satisfaction when his fellow veteran grape pickers celebrate his
achievement by the traditional grape dunking -'ceremoniously
depositing him as his "baptism of grapes" into a tub of his favorite
fruit. This is a pleasant journey into the French wine country, related
by an individual who has both a superb command of what wine is all
about and an equally superb command of the writing art, effectively
employed to explain the appreciation of the wine mystic. Obviously, I
think this book is a definite "keeper."
Jack Raskopf, Fort Worth, Texas
