How to Taste by Jancis Robinson

Book Description

Hailed by Jerry Shriver in "USA Today" as the woman who makes the wine world gulp when she speaks, Jancis Robinson created in "How to Taste" a classic for connoisseurs of all levels and the first introduction of its kind to focus on practical tasting exercises. Now fully revised and updated, Robinson's renowned guide proves once again that learning about wine can be just as engaging as drinking it. What better way to learn about wine than to taste it? Written in Robinson's trademark accessible style, the new "How to Taste" features thoroughly updated vintages and producers as well as up-and-coming wine regions and styles. Incorporating wines that are both easily obtainable and reasonably priced, Robinson's lessons are separated into complementary portions of theory and practice to help you both learn and taste your way to wine expertise. One of the world's best-loved authorities on wine, Robinson explains first how to get the most out of the flavor of your wine and food, and then about specific grapes and the wines themselves. By the time you finish the book, you will have learned how to recognize the most popular grape varieties from Chardonnay and Riesling to Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon, and why a good sparkling wine is always better than cheap champagne. You will discover how to judge sweetness, acidity, and fruitiness as well as the difference between the length and the weight of a wine. You will also be given practical advice for dealing with wine in the real world: how to choose from a wine list, organize your own wine tastings, and pair wines with specific foods. From the armchair to the wine shop and back to the table, "How to Taste" will transform anyone on any level into a confident connoisseur who can leave faltering sips behind and have fun along the way."
