"Batonnage became the chic thing to do during the white's raising, but the result left the wines flabby and similar across different appellations." That is the sort of detail you can expect; this is no beginners book. I have at times needed to read paragraphs a second time to really comprehend what Learmonth is saying but once I grasp what he is saying I feel as if I am part of a very select group who have delved deeper into the subject of wine than most. It's time for the author to write about the Southern Rhone.
Who knew that a guidebook to the Rhone could not only be a necessary resource book but also a hell of a read? This is an in-depth and entertaining insight into a region that produces the ne plus ultra of syrah (yes, viognier and the other whites, but it's all about the syrah, isn't it?).
