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.
