Terre en Vues

Terre en Vues est née en 2000. Cette société de reportage dont l'objectif premier est la diffusion d'images, notamment dans le domaine de la vigne et du vin, est installée au coeur du vignoble bourguignon.

Sophie et Christian Bon ont naturellement fait évoluer leurs activités vers l'édition d'ouvrages illustrés par les photographies de Christian Bon.

Aujourd'hui, l'édition représente l'essentiel de l'activité de Terre en Vues, une maison d'édition qui n'exclut aucun genre en privilégiant toutefois une collection sur la connaissance des terroirs.

A TRIBUTE TO THE GREAT WINES OF BURGUNDY

A TRIBUTE TO THE GREAT WINES OF BURGUNDY


Description

Jacky Rigaux - James K. Finkel.

More than ten years ago, in 1997, when the great man was still alive, Jacky Rigaux, well-known Burgundian wine-writer, published a book on Henri Jayer. This book is essentially a Jayer guide to making great Burgundy.

Jacky Rigaux - James K. Finkel

Around 30 percent of the tome consists of direct quotes from the great man, starting from the soil and continuing through to the end of the élevage.

 

What comes across is ... the perfectionism [Jayer's] approach, his curiosity, and his willingness to learn on the job. It was this open-mindedness which made him a genius. It was his kindness, his more-than-willingness to pass on what he had learnt to subsequent generations, which made him the object of reverence throughout the Côte d'Or.

 

This book should be essential reading: everyone, wherever they make wine, from wherever they drink wine, should want to understand why some wines are very well made, but not great, and why there are a few wines which make those of us who adore the stuff go weak at the knees in wonder.

 

Mr. Finkel ... has done a grand job, and those of us on the outside should be well and truly grateful. His translation is deft and to the point; a credit to the original. This is indeed a labour of love.
