    150 Years at Chateau Lafite
    ISBN: 9782080204202
    Publication date: 01/09/2020

    Winemakers Éric and Saskia de Rothschild lead readers through 150 vintages of Château Lafite, revealing key moments since the family arrived in 1868, along with scientific and climatic data and visual memories from the château's archives. Over the past 150 years, six generations of the Rothschild family have attended to the winemaking tradition, developing Château Lafite's reputation and transforming this classified Premier Grand Cru into a benchmark for fine wine in Bordeaux. Discover how this occurred and what actually lies behind Lafite's label through stories from the tightly-knit team of men and women who tend to Lafite wines--from vineyard workers to barrel makers, and harvesters to winemakers. A chronology introducing each of the 150 vintages includes informative tasting notes, meteorological aspects, and the grape blends that mark each vintage. An archival gem has been unearthed for each year: from the harvesters' menu in 1922 to portraits by master photographers like Robert Doisneau, Richard Avedon, and Paolo Roversi. Space to record personal tasting notes allows readers to make this book their own, building their wine knowledge over time. The Lafite story--illustrated here with historical documents, press clippings, and photographs--combines deep respect for tradition with a commitment to evolve with the times, protecting Lafite's singular, vibrant, and evolving legacy for the next 150 years.

    The newly designed twenty-fifth anniversary edition of the classic volume, brought up-to-date

    "Wine is, above all, about pleasure. Those who make it ponderous make it dull . . . If you keep an open mind and take each wine on its own terms, there is a world of magic to discover." So wrote the renowned wine expert Kermit Lynch in the introduction to Adventures on the Wine Route, his ultimate tour of France, especially its wine cellars. The "magic" of wine is Lynch's subject as he takes the reader on a singular journey through the Loire, Bordeaux, the Languedoc, Provence, northern and southern Rhone, and Burgundy. In Adventures on the Wine Route, the wine lover will find wisdom without a trace of pretension and hype. As Victor Hazan wrote, "In Kermit Lynch's small, true, delightful book there is more understanding about what wine really is than in everything else I have read."

    Praise for Lynch and for Adventures on the Wine Route has not ceased since the book's initial publication a quarter century ago. In 2007, The New York Times called it "one of the finest American books on wine." And in June 2012, The Wall Street Journal proclaimed it "the best book on the wine business." Full of vivid portraits of French vintners, memorable evocations of the French countryside, and, of course, vibrant descriptions of French wines, this new edition of Adventures on the Wine Route updates a modern classic for our times.
