Grand Bordeaux Châteaux : Inside the Fine Wine Estates of France (Hardcover) (Philippe Chaix)
About this item
Discover a dozen exceptional Bordeaux wine estates, complete with tasting notes from a renowned wine critic. From Lafite Rothschild to Angélus to Cheval Blanc, Bordeaux produces the world’s finest wines. In this gift volume with silver gilded pages, the histories of the wineries is completed with detailed tasting notes. JFK’s beloved Petrus—the world’s most expensive wine—emanates a balance of "dark fruits, black olives, dark chocolate, and earth." Château Margaux—Thomas Jefferson’s favorite—still seduces with its "valentine of dark chocolate and roses melded with the aromatics of licorice, blackberry, and cocoa." Esteemed architects reflect the elegant wines in the graceful lines of a dozen estates and cellars: Lord Norman Foster’s renovation preserves the neo-Palladian spirit of Château Margaux, Jacques Garcia softens Château Cos d’Estournel’s steel-and-glass winery with India-inspired decorative elements, and Jean Nouvel tucks a high-tech new winery inside La Dominique’s listed UNESCO World Heritage site.
