Jancis Robinson, editor of the award-winning best-seller The Oxford Companion to Wine, is also wine columnist of The Financial Times and the Wine Spectator. She brings great humor and the expertise of a Master of Wine to one of life's most delicious subjects. Jancis Robinson's Wine Course introduces you to wine by focusing on the grape varieties which shape its flavor. This beautifully filmed tour of the world of wine brings labels and liquids alive.
This program begins by examining the historic wine trade of Bordeaux, which is one of the world's most stratified. You'll then compare two startlingly different approaches to winemaking: the traditional growers of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume and New Zealand's resourceful, opportunistic Sauvignon Blanc growers.
- Starting your own wine cellar (and a peek at Baroness Philippine de Rothschild's).
- Chateau Country - the Medoc and the Bordeaux wine trade.
- Dining at Chateau Margaux.
- Flying winemakers - the men who follow the sine to make wine all over the world.
- Chile - dynamic new Cabernet Sauvignon producer.
- What is appellation controlee - straightjacket or sales aid?
- Didier Dagueneau, the wild man of Pouilly-Fume.
- The new Klondike, Marlborough in New Zealand.
By sharing secrets of the experts, Jancis Robinson's Wine Course will help you appreciate and enjoy wine like never before.
