One of the most engaging books on wine published for some years. - Edmund Penning-Rowsell Financial Times
The best read I've encountered in the last few years is the charming Kermit Lynch Adventures on the Wine Route. Lynch travels the wine country as each of us wishes he or she could and writes about it as we wish we could write. Should you be so fortunate as to travel the French wine regions, this book should be your travel guide. If you can't, put it on your bed table for the best nightcap you could enjoy. - Bob Lowe Time Out
A riveting account of one man's pursuit of authenticity as well as excellence in wine...Kermit Lynch's colorful portraits of some idiosyncratic vintners, and his commentaries on their wines, make for some of the finest reading since Joseph Wechsberg ate and drank his way through France in his book Blue Trout and Black Truffles. - Robert M. Parker, Jr. The Wine Advocate
A good doctor prescribed the wine of Nuits-Saint-Georges to the Sun King, Louis XIV, when he suffered an unknown maladie. When the king’s health was restored the tasty remedy enjoyed a vogue at court. Lord, send me a doctor like that!
