Noble Rot A Bordeaux Wine Revolution
By William Echikson

For wine lovers, Bordeaux is the centre of the universe. But in the past two decades, revolutionaries have stormed its traditional bastions, making their mark - and their fortunes - modernising the production and marketing of wine. Noble Rot introduces the figures who epitomise the changes sweeping Bordeaux: the feuding family behind Chateau d'Yquem; a stonemason turned winemaker whose wine, made in a garage, sells for huge sums per bottle; the Maryland-based critic Robert Parker, whose opinion routinely makes or breaks a wine; and the New World operations that have undercut Bordeaux's supremacy. It also delves into the mysteries of the legendary classification of 1855: how it became the bible of Bordeaux and how it was challenged.
