Share

We're happy to offer a variety of excellent recently published wine books, featuring the just released "Domaine aux Moines: A Year in the Heart of the Loire Valley Vineyards" with text by Pascaline Lepeltier.  "A story of fine wine - The Domaine aux Moines is in the Anjou area of the Loire Valley. In the period from the Middle Ages through to the Revolution, it belonged to the monks of Béhuard and then to the those of the Abbaye Saint-Nicolas of Angers. Since 1981, the mother and daughter team of Monique and Tessa Laroche has been producing elegant wines from this exceptional terroir. These have gained recognition worldwide: the Domaine aux Moines, AOC Savennières Roche aux Moines, the AOC Anjou Villages, and the latest addition to the family, Le Berceau des Fées.
In this book, you will learn about the annual work of the Domaine with Tessa Laroche and her team; from the time when the grapes are picked to the moment when the wine is bottled, from pruning to debudding and tying up the vines through photographs by Hélène de Fontainieu and the expert writing of Pascaline Lepeltier, It will also give pride of place to Chenin, a type of wine that expresses its true splendor here in this terroir of volcanic rock and gritty schist." (In French and English)  Please join us on Wenesday, March 14th as Tessa Laroche comes to Chambers Street Wines for a book signing and tasting, followed by a dinner and tasting at Racines, with author/sommelier Pascaline Lepeltier in attendance. (Dinner tickets available Feb.15th)

Of special note in our winter harvest of wine books is the recently released "The New Vignerons - A New Generaton of Spanish Wine Growers," by Luis Gutiérrez - it's a beautiful book on some of our favorite Spanish growers and is quite hard to find. And of course we love "Jura Wine" by our friend Wink Lorch - a must read for any wine lover!

Our favorite French wine publication, LeRouge&leBlanc, is also available, both current and back issues. This superb magazine, edited by Francois Morel (author of "le Vin au Naturel") is free of advertising and offers in-depth articles on wine regions and growers in France and around the world, with an emphasis on organic and natural producers. (In French only)

Also on offer today is a recently discovered treasure trove of Ed Behr's "The Art of Eating!" This is among the world's finest food publications with fascinating articles and great writing and reporting. Anyone who loves to cook, or eat well, should pick-up some of these beautiful journals. In English!
