Résumé

"Rajat Parr has one of the best jobs in the world. This book is a fascinating story of his life as a sommelier, from his early days as a student at the Culinary Institute of America to his work as one of the top buyers of fine wines in the United States. His commentary on the major grapes of the world, profiles of the best producers and importers, and philosophy on how to serve wines give readers tremendous insight into how to buy for any collection." Kevin Zraly, Author Of Windows on the world complete wine course.
"As a young sommelier, Rajat Parr astonished me with his comprehension of Burgundy wines and his obsession for finding ways—be it through temperature, decanting, or pairings—to help a wine reach its full potential. Few people have a nose and a palate that allow them to remember every smell or taste they encounter, and who have at the me time tasted so many of the wines produced on this planet. Rajat is one of them.
He could easily spend his days with the wine 'cognoscenti,' but instead he devotes himself to educating and persuading diners, especially young ones, that wine is made to be enjoyed—and that the goal of producers is not to intimidate, but to give people the pleasure of drinking their creations. In that sense, Rajar is an ambassador of truth." Aubert de Villain, co-owner and co director of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti.
"Secrets of the Sommeliers is as precise as a laser-like Blanc de Blanes Champagne, yet has the easy appeal of a fleshy red Burgundy. Full of valuable insider tips from the pros, the book is written in an approachable style that makes learning about wine as enjoyable as drinking it. For aspiring sommeliers, this is a must-read, and passionate wine consumers will also want it in their collection." Leslie Sbrocco, Author of The simple & savvy wine guide, Wine consultant, and television host.
