I love this new map of French wine regions, the Metro Wine Map of France devised by architectural theorist David Gissen of San Francisco and published by Purple pager Steve De Long of London.
You can read an Atlantic interview with David Gissen entitled 'How Wine Became Metropolitan' here. It was apparently a Lapierre 2009 Morgon that lit the flame for him, at Chez Panisse in Berkeley. (I'm thrilled to have a case of this, his last vintage, in my own cellar.) Gissen is also toying with designing a concrete decanter (though I note that even he, or the Atlantic interviewer, use the word 'varietal' instead of 'variety').
You can order the map, 18 x 24 inches on heavyweight 'archival' paper, either at Amazon.com or from www.delongwine.com at $24.95, £20 or €20 a pop.
