Kermit Lynch, Adventures on the Wine Route

“The spontaneity and humanity of this book make for an appealing read, as does its storyline which introduces us to some wonderful estates. Only a wine that is similarly off the beaten track can provide a suitable match.”

Alexandre Dumas, The Lady of the Camellias

“This superb, extremely refined Pinot noir from the Côte de Nuits in Burgundy’s prime vineyards is the kind of wine that blows you away, just like an Alexandre Dumas novel. A very moving experience.”

Mas Mudigliza, Rouge (AOC Maury)

&

Robert Merle, Malevil

“A book that is gripping, clever and captivating. You need to know how to savour it slowly, just like this racy, elegant dessert wine. The odd sip as you read is enough to give you food for thought.”

Domaine Jolly Ferriol, Au fil du temps (Vin de France)

&

Michel Tournier, Friday or the Other Island

“In one hand, a philosophical tale to meditate over, in the other, a dry rancio from Roussillon, which also invites contemplation. Exuding wafts of aroma hour after hour, it shows at its best on its own. Seated comfortably in front of the fire, savour it with some left-over white truffle risotto or some Collioure anchovies.”

&

Arthur Rimbaud, Illuminations

“One of the most enchanting, timeless books I know, that you can delve into at any time – on the subway, in the morning, in the evening, in the city centre or surrounded by nature. To go with it, a sparkling wine as light as the wind yet complex with a subtle fruitiness, saline and savoury, like Rimbaud’s works.”

Domaine Christophe Lindenlaub, À griffes acérées (AOC Alsace)

&

Stephen Clarke, A Year in the Merde

“A delightful, tongue-in-cheek book, calling for an upright, saline wine which makes me think of this Alsace Riesling crafted naturally with minimum use of sulphur. Its candied peach aromas make it absolutely delicious too.”

Domaine Georges Vernay, Les Chaillées de l’enfer (AOC Condrieu)

&

Ewan McGregor & Charley Boorman, Long Way Round

“The book is about a motorbike road trip, from London to New York via Siberia and Canada. To go with it, you need a wine that transports you and blows you away. This one is perfect, with the added bonus of its explosive aromatics which gives it outstanding drive.”

Alice Feiring, The Battle for Wine and Love
