Noble Rot – Issue 29

CHF 19.00 (incl. VAT)

Noble Rot Issue 29 (Blind Faith) is available now at LOREM (not Ipsum). A well-worn wine-trade legend involves a venerable merchant being asked when they last mistook Bordeaux for Burgundy. “Not since lunchtime” is their answer. Loved by some and reviled by many, the often-ignominious art of blind tasting – AKA trying to identify a wine without seeing the label – comes under the spotlight in the new issue of Noble Rot.

Noble Rot Issue 29 (Blind Faith) is available now at LOREM (not Ipsum). A well-worn wine-trade legend involves a venerable merchant being asked when they last mistook Bordeaux for Burgundy. “Not since lunchtime” is their answer. Loved by some and reviled by many, the often-ignominious art of blind tasting – AKA trying to identify a wine without seeing the label – comes under the spotlight in the new issue of Noble Rot.

The Noble Rot magazine is published quarterly and the home of exciting wine and food writing. Since its launch in February 2013 Noble Rot has seen chefs Fergus Henderson, Valentine Warner and José Pizarro rubbing shoulders with artists like LCD Soundsystem, Lily Allen and David Shrigley, blurring the boundaries between gastronomy and the creative arts. Contributors include cult Scottish author John Niven, eRobert Parker’s Neal Martin, The River Café’s Emily O’Hare, Jamie Goode, Richard Hemming and Skint Records’ Damian Harris. Noble Rot was founded by two friends, Dan Keeling and Mark Andrew, who met through a shared love of wine, design and independent magazines whilst working next door to each other on Kensington High Street. Following a successful Kickstarter campaign which raised £11,600 of funding in Autumn 2013, Noble Rot is continuing to expand at a considerable rate. The magazine is based in London, and published quarterly.

Features: Noble Rot – Issue 29

  • Interview king of interviewers Louis Theroux and disco queen Róisín Murphy. We find ourselves dancing to the tune of Theroux’s wiggle wiggle while Murphy tells Noble Rot agony uncle John Niven about her love of food over a pre-gig supper.
  • Travel to Andalusia to meet some of Sherry’s most exciting new winemakers, and profile Jura Yellow Wine, Emilia-Romagna’s Denavolo, Cretan wine, and Barbacàn, the Instagram dance sensations busting a move on Valtellina’s vertiginous slopes.
  • Hear about Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker ‘Greatest Meal’ at New York’s The Four Seasons.
  • Elsewhere, Marina O’Loughlin wishes chefs would stay in the kitchen, comedian Isy Suttie tells us how she found her passion for wine at Oddbins, Alice Feiring tells us why she’s not having ‘mouse taint’,
  • Robert Walters reflects on two pivotal vintages for Champagne, and Henry Harris professes his love for andouillette – France’s stinky sausage. Somebody open the windows!

It’s what we believe, what we trust and what we admire. Faith can be powerful, complex, influential and sometimes confronting. It can create a sense of community, but can also cause a divide.
