About the Author

The touch of hype stems from the promise implied by the author that he will answer some rather inflammatory questions about Pinot Noir and its expression in different parts of the world. Although he indeed asks these questions, he doesn't really answer them explicitly.
One issue of editing: as the author tours around various sections of the world, he often changes regions without any kind of section header. A little bit of editing would make this very educational book more useful as a reference.
I highly recommend the book for those who want to learn more about Pinot Noir, it's history, and how it is expressed in wine throughout the world.
I do hope that when the author comes back to California he will try Paso Robles. Along with our Rhone varieties and Zinfandel, we do have a cool spot that is turning out some excellent Pinot Noir.

Terrific history on pinot noir, and it's development in France and elsewhere. Not overly technical, an easy read for the interested layman.Published on March 16, 2013 by Tom R
