This book, Almanach Château Lafite 1868, retraces the fascinating adventure of a vineyard which in 2018 celebrated 150 years of vines, wines, encounters, hazards and battles!

    Author:  Saskia Rothschild (de)

    Publishing House: Flammarion

    Publication Date: December 2020

    Description : Winemakers Éric and Saskia de Rothschild lead readers through 150 vintages of Château Lafite, revealing key moments since the family arrived in 1868, along with scientific and climatic data and visual memories from the château’s archives. Over the past 150 years, six generations of the Rothschild family have attended to the winemaking tradition, developing Château Lafite’s reputation and transforming this classified Premier Grand Cru into a benchmark for fine wine in Bordeaux. Discover how this occurred and what actually lies behind Lafite’s label through stories from the tightly-knit team of men and women who tend to Lafite wines-from vineyard workers to barrel makers, and harvesters to winemakers. A chronology introducing each of the 150 vintages includes informative tasting notes, meteorological aspects, and the grape blends that mark each vintage. An archival gem has been unearthed for each year: from the harvesters’ menu in 1922 to portraits by master photographers like Robert Doisneau, Richard Avedon, and Paolo Roversi. Space to record personal tasting notes allows readers to make this book their own, building their wine knowledge over time.

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.

    It is the most prestigious appellation in the world – yet the iconic Romanée-Conti is the fruit of a vineyard that is small in size, but big in history. This is precisely what Laurens Delpech reveals in this book – the short story of the Prince of Romanée-Conti, the man who turned this modest vineyard into a grand cru, like a work of gustatory art!

    Author: Laurens Delpech

    Publishing House: Flammarion

    Publication Date: October 2020

    Description :Cousin of the King of France Louis XV, Prince Louis-François de Bourbon-Conti was a patron of the intellectuals of his time such as Diderot, Beaumarchais and Rousseau and a very famous collector of works of art. His stroke of genius was the purchase of the vineyard of the Romanée which was to be called Romanée-Conti. This book reveals the secrets of this mythical wine, object of a real cult by amateurs around the world. After a biography dedicated to the prince of Conti, it allows us, through recent tastings, to define the characteristics of this unique wine that must be placed within the Climates of Burgundy. These climates are terroirs where Burgundian grape varieties are optimally acclimatized. These long-recognized terroirs have enjoyed a unique historical continuity and were inscribed on the World Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2015. To understand Burgundy, it is necessary to know its climates but also to be aware of the climate, that is to say the meteorological conditions of each vintage, because the fact of producing great wines, to the northern limit of maturity of the type of vines used, is sometimes like an obstacle course where nature tries to play tricks on the winemaker. This is why Laurens Delpech reproduces large extracts from the harvest reports published since 1996 by Aubert de Villaine, who runs the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. This saga of successive vintages reminds us of the difficulty of winemaking. This original, very complete book, which highlights the duality of climates and climate that makes the greatest wines of Burgundy, is written with an alert pen. It is an excellent synthesis of the Romanée-Conti which will also be very useful to those who wish, quite simply, to refine their knowledge and appreciation of Burgundy wines.
