“Over ten years, Noble Rot has gone from niche, irreverent fanzine to essential reading for both obsessive fans and anyone interested in the worlds of wine and food. Fortunately, it's still as beautiful, as packed with names - and as irreverent - as ever.” Marina O'Loughlin

To begin with, Noble rot welcomes, to celebrate their 10th anniversary, straight from Great Britain: Hyde - the country's most hilarious political and cultural commentator as well as the brilliant O'Loughlin who writes about the most influential restaurants in the decade. Having hung up her spurs as a Sunday Times food critic, they are very proud to welcome her as the new editor of Noble Rot.

Another person who, judging by her cheerful prose, might have made a career as a critic if she were not one of Hollywood's most famous actresses, is Keira Knightley, who writes about her "greatest meal".

And to confirm their original mission "WINE MUSIC FOOD LIFE", Mike D. says he fell in love with Burgundy during the Beastie Boys era in "The Hip Hop Burgundy Wine Cult".

10 years of Noble Rot is also about reflecting on some of the wines that have brought pure joy and which have been chosen by authors like Jancis Robinson, William Kelley and Alice Feiring ('20 Essential Wines of the Past Decade') . But that's not all: they were sampled and approved by the rave generation's most illustrious duo - The Chemical Brothers - while being interviewed by John Niven at their Greek St lair. Wisdom gleaned from the course from their now-classic sessions often astonishes, as Kate Spicer testifies in " What We Learned About Humanity From a Decade of Noble Rot Interviews ." There is also Jay McInerney who celebrates 60 years of Ridge Vineyards, Stephen Harris who continues his series on food movements, articles on Chassagne-Montrachet, Priorat, Oslavian Ribolla, wine auctions, digestives and the much-loved and missed wine importer Becky Wasserman-Hone.

Conclusion ? The number thirteen may bring bad luck to some, but we are certain that there could not have been a more fortuitous time than 2013 to launch a magazine blurring the lines of “MUSICAL LIFE OF WINE AND GASTRONOMY ". Indeed, from the moment the Noble rot team published its first issue in February of that year, it has ridden the tidal wave of change that has swept through wine and food culture and, Saint Hermitage, it was a pleasure. An exceptional decade, to which the team pays tribute in this issue, which marks their tenth anniversary!
