Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Andr Jullien, born 1766 at Chalon-sur-Sa ne, Sa ne-et-Loire, died 1832 of cholera in Paris, was a French vintner and pioneering wine writer. Wine historian Hugh Johnson describes Jullien's work as "the foundation-stone of modern writing about wine." At the age of around 30, Jullien moved to Paris and entered the wholesale wine trade. As a n gociant he made several improvements to the practices of the wine trade; he invented an air tube to better being able to tap wine and a powder for clarification of wine. For this, he was awarded gold medals at various exhibitions and was supported by the minister Jean-Antoine Chaptal. Jullien initiated the ambitious project of describing all known wine regions and their wines, and in this he made a pioneering effort, as the professional wine literature was almost solely concerned with how to grow vines and make wine, and not with describing and comparing different wine regionsshow more
