Welcome to "Wine-Journal": an independent state within the kingdom of eRobertParker.com, home to the writings and musings upon wine, music and anything else that happens to wander into the permeable mind of your host, Neal Martin. Here you will find reverence and irreverence in equal measure; analysis infused with humour; unexpected digressions; a sprinkle of surrealism and a large spoonful of passion. As much the devil's advocate as wine's, "Wine-Journal" aspires to be the entertaining thorn in the side of wine writing, prose full of colour (not color); criticism how it is and not what it ought to be.

Wine-Journal is constantly updated with new articles, the most recent listed below. The burgeoning library of previous work is housed in the "Wine-Journal Archive" and are now grouped per geographic location and for Bordeaux, per appellation. The many thousands of tasting notes can be accessed using the Wine Journal search engine and this is updated every two months to include new additions.

Three years in the making, Neal Martin's "Pomerol" is the definitive book on one of Bordeaux's least known appellations. It is a personal portrayal that seeks to convey the spirit of Pomerol both past and present. Within its 592 pages readers can discover the real name of Jean-Pierre Moueix and what Jean-Claude Berrouet's first day in his employ; the courage of Gabrielle de Sauvanelle during the Revolution; the untold story of "Domaine de Mautretat" and whose vineyards Alexendre Thienpont once mistakenly picked.
