Tim Elliott at Winecast has just announced the title for the second edition of the Wine Book Club. In Noble Rot, author William Echikson traces the history of the wines of Bordeaux and explores the conflicts between the old world and the new brought on in Bordeaux by the recent impact of global economics, big time wine critics’ culture of points and modern wine making techniques. It’s been on my reading list for a while now, so I’m looking forward to participating in WBC round two. Assignments are due on Tuesday, April 29. Postings can be reported to Tim at Winecast or, for those participants who don’t have their own blogs, at the now up and running Wine Book Club site.
