Stuart Pigott does not care for wine snobs. He is not interested in the elitist fuss that some wine connaisseurs like to make; instead, he appreciates the pure joy that a good wine can give you. And in his opinion, there are good wines all over the world – you just have to look for them. The enfant terrible of wine critics has written about his quest in Planet Wine, which is more of an adventure novel than a wine guide. In the 155 pages of his journey to a wide variety of wine reginos around the globe, Pigott has plent of tales to tell about the work and the passion of vinters, no matter how much or how little wine they produce. He also manages to open the world of wine to a young audience thanks to his magnificent pcitures and cheeky texts. According to Pigott a cabernet sauvignon has more funk in its blood thant Bootsy Collins has in his bass voice, and grenache has the beat of The Who’s early hits. A red wine might taste of damp soil or chokolade, and then perhaps of silk or roses. If you are one of those people who could only tell the difference between dry and sweet wines up until now, get ready to encounter new worlds of taste on Pigott’s planet. And that’s not all you’ll encounter – not only does Pigott come across the mighty fists of Mike Tyson, vampires and beasts, he also discovers some truly excellent wines. If conventional wine guides have always been too ponderous and snobbish for your tastes, you will be thirlled to discover Planet Wine and the treats it offers all the senses.
