Im 18. Jahrhundert erwarb die Weinhandelsfamilie Libéral, daher auch der Name, die besten Weinbergslagen um den Ort Bages im Paulliac. Heute grenzt die eine Hälfte der Weinberge an Château Latour an und die andere Hälfte liegt hinter Château Pichon Baron auf den Höhen von Bages im Süden von Poulliac. Das Weingut erhielt den Namen Haut-Bages Libéral. 1962 nach dem Erwerb durch die Familie Cruse, bereits Eigentümer von Château Pontet-Canet, machten die Weinberge eine Verjüngungskur, da sie komplett neu bepflanzt wurden. 1982 musste das Weingut verkauft werden. Es kam in den Besitz des Weinhändlers Jacques Merlaut, der gleichzeitig Eigentümer der namhaften Châteaux: Chasse-Spleen, Ferrière und La Gurgue war. Hiermit begann die Ära der Familie Villars, denn die heutige Besitzerin Claire Lurton-Villars, ist seine Enkelin. Diese übernahm nach dem Unfalltod der Eltern die Leitung der Weingüter, wobei sie von ihrem Mann Gonzarques Lurton unterstützt wird. Notwendige Modernisierungen wurden durchgeführt, so dass das seit 1855 als 5ième Grand Cru Classé qualifizierte Weingut seinen alten Glanz zurückbekam. Claire Villars-Lurton ließ den Keller komplett erneuern. In Keller und Weinberg wird nach Umweltschonenden Verfahren gearbeitet. Die Böden sind wie für den Weinbau gemacht: Untergrund aus viel Geröll, einige Kalksplitter, grober Sand, Kaum Humus, kaum Lehm.Claire Villars-Lurton weiß die hier wachsenden Trauben, Cabernet sauvignon (70%) und Merlot (30%), gemäß ihrer natürlichen Gaben zu schätzen und zu behandeln. Traditioneller Ausbau der einzelnen Parzellen, anschliessend 16 Monate im Barrique (40% neu). Ihr Ziel ist es Weine zu kreieren, die das Terroir zum Ausdruck bringen.Sie will den Wein in seinen Gegebenheiten fördern nicht manipulieren.Dass ihr das immer wieder gelingt, beweisen die hervorragenden Kritiken der »Weinpäpste«.Tiefdunkler Wein, starke Aromen von schwarzen Johannisbeeren, kraftvoll und elegant, weiche Tannine, angenehm im Mund. Ein klassischer Jahrgang!

Part memoir, part remedy for the state we're in, with liberal sprinklings of common sense, Chris Patten's Not Quite the Diplomat is a frank and funny book from a very outspoken politician.After spending several years in the thick of international events, Chris Patten has seen rather a lot of the world - and the people who run it. And now he's free from the bonds of diplomacy, he doesn't have to be quite so careful about what he says.Here he gives us his forthright views on everything from the Tories' downfall to America's empire, from whether Blair has any political convictions to why Britain should start liking the French.'Masterly, elegant, sprightly, wry ... the best political reading of the year'James Naughtie, The Times Books of the Year'A garnering of rich personal experience ... Frank and vivid ... without betraying any confidences or relationships of trust (Sir Christopher Meyer, please note)'The Times Literary Supplement Books of the Year'Elegant, warm, witty, stylish and readable ...

1,50 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

'Carp-idealist' - fairy tale-parable of Mikhail Evgrafovich Saltykov-Shchedrin, the famous Russian writer of the XIX century (1826-1889). Carp, read and divorced from life, once meets a ruff - sane and mundane, and shares with him ideas about the equality between all fish. Saltykov-Shchedrin wrote in the style of accusatory pathos, satire on the one hand, and profound psychology on the other. Condemned capital morality, serfdom. Mikhail Saltykov-Shchedrin is the author of various works: Kissel, Konyag, Liberal, Bear in the Voivodeship, Little Things in Life, The Undying Eye, Letters to Auntie, Stories, Essays and Stories by M Stebnitsky ',' Pompadours and Pompadours ',' A Tale of how one man fed two generals 'and many others.

Fine Lines from the Box
7,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From the beginniong Fine Lines from the Box traces a journey of the mind and an ongoing exercise of reading and writing by one of South Africa's most incisive commentators. Taken with Njabulo Ndebele's earlier Rediscovery of the Ordinary, this collection challenges, entreats, cajoles and prods one into understanding a range of issues - the loss of innocence in achieving a ' new South Africa', the President and the AIDS question, higher education and the liberal tradition, the place of English in modern South Africa, that African icon Brenda Fassie, the vagaries of journalism, and the time in the life of a country when the oppressed must free the oppressor. Covering a span of eighteen years from 1987 to 2006 these pieces cut to the nation's quick. They provide a sane view of our recent past and explain much about what often seems to a baffling present.

The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Int...

“A disturbing and comprehensive analysis of recent campus trends… Lukianoff and Haidt notice something unprecedented and frightening… The consequences of a generation unable or disinclined to engage with ideas that make them uncomfortable are dire for society, and open the door – accessible from both the left and the right – to various forms of authoritarianism.” —  Thomas Chatterton Williams, The New York Times Book Review (cover review and Editors’ Choice selection) 'So how do you create ‘wiser kids’? Get them off their screens. Argue with them. Get them out of their narrow worlds of family, school and university. Boot them out for a challenging Gap year. It all makes perfect sense…the cure seems a glorious revelation.'— Philip Delves Broughton, Evening Standard “The authors, both of whom are liberal academics — almost a tautology on today’s campuses — do a great job of showing how ‘safetyism’ is cramping young minds. Students are treated like candles, which can be extinguished by a puff of wind. The goal of a Socratic education should be to turn them into fires, which thrive on the wind. Instead, they are sheltered from anything that could cause offence. . . Their advice is sound. Their book is excellent. Liberal parents, in particular, should read it.” — Edward Luce, Financial Times   “Their distinctive contribution to the higher-education debate is to meet safetyism on its own, psychological turf… Lukianoff and Haidt tell us that safetyism undermines the freedom of inquiry and speech that are indispensable to universities.” —  Jonathan Marks, Commentary “The remedies the book outlines should be considered on college campuses, among parents of current and future students, and by anyone longing for a more sane society.” — Pittsburgh Post-Gazette “Perhaps the strongest argument in Haidt and Lukianoff’s favour, though, is this: if you see this issue as being about little more than a few sanctimonious teenagers throwing hissy fits on campus then, yes, it is probably receiving too much attention. But if you accept their premise, that it’s really a story about mental wellbeing and emotional fragility, about a generation acting out because it has been set up to fail by bad parenting and poorly designed institutions, then their message is an urgent one. And it is one that resonates well beyond dusty libraries and manicured quadrangles, into all of our lives.”— Josh Glancy, The Sunday Times (UK) “Jonathan Haidt and Greg Lukianoff’s new book,  The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure, persuasively unpacks the causes of the current predicament on campus – which they link to wider parenting, cultural and political trends. . .The Coddling of the American Mind is both an enlightening but disquieting read. We have a lot of challenges in front of us.” —  Quillette, Matthew Lesh 'The authors remind us of some of the campus happenings that, since 2015, have afrighted old liberals like me... In the end [despite some objections] I agreed with Messrs Lukianoff and Haidt that protecting kids has gone too far, and that some campus behaviour is absurd and worrying.' — David Aaronovitch, The Times (UK) 'The speed with which campus life has changed for the worse is one of the most important points made by Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt in this important if disturbing book.' — Niall Ferguson, Sunday Times “Rising intolerance for opposing viewpoints is a challenge not only on college campuses but also in our national political discourse. The future of our democracy requires us to understand what’s happening and why—so that we can find solutions and take action. Reading The Coddling of the American Mind is a great place to
