By Stephen Brook
The definitive work on the wines of Bordeaux. Assesses all of the significant wine properties throughout the region - more than 1,000. Includes detailed statistics on the grapes, wines and production for every property featured. Written by one of the world's foremost authoroties on Bordeaux, whose book Bordeaux: People, Power and Politics won the Veuve Clicquot and ICP awards.
The core of this book is an assessment of more than 1,000 significant wine producers in Bordeaux. For each property Stephen considers its history, viticulture, vinification, wine styles and vintages. But this is more than simply a producer-by-producer reference work; Stephen analyses the information he presents in order to give a clear picture of the current trends in the region. This is an honest account of a wine region which is marvellous in parts, underperforming in others and preoccupied with its place in a new global wine market.
