From Lafite Rothschild to Angelus to Cheval Blanc, Bordeaux produces the world's finest wines. This gift volume-featuring gilded-edged pages-recounts the histories of twelve of Bordeaux's most prestigious wine estates. Mysterious Petrus, powerful Mouton Rothschild, elite Pichon Longueville Baron, and charming Montrose-together they create a surprising, spectacular, and contemporary image of wine today. The famous chateaux have each called upon esteemed architects to reflect the elegant wines in the graceful lines of their estates and cellars: Lord Norman Foster's renovation preserves the neo-Palladian spirit of Chateau Margaux, Jacques Garcia softened Chateau Cos d'Estournel's steel-and-glass winery with India-inspired decorative elements, and Jean Nouvel tucked a high-tech new chai inside La Dominique's listed UNESCO World Heritage site. Prominent wine critic James Suckling's detailed tasting notes offer insight into these mythical wines and the innovative vinification methods behind their unparalleled quality and prestige. With evocative photography that showcases the beauty of the wine, vineyards, and architecture of these magnificent estates, this volume is completed with biographies of the featured architects and a list of the chateaux open to the public.
