Featuring a fresh layout, revised maps, and more detail than ever before, the eagerly anticipated seventh edition of Parker''s Wine Buyer''s Guide offers collectors and amateurs alike the ultimate resource to the world''s best wines. In every way, this edition bears out Parker''s stated goal: "To make you a more formidable, more confident wine buyer by providing you with sufficient insider''s information to permit the wisest possible choice when you make a wine-buying decision."

Understanding that buyers on every level appreciate a good deal, Parker separates overvalued bottles from undervalued, with wine prices instantly shifting according to his evaluations. Indifferent to the wine''s pedigree, Parker''s eminent 100-point rating system allows for independent, consumer-oriented, inside information.

The latest edition of Parker''s Wine Buyer''s Guide includes expanded information on Spain, Portugal, Germany, Australia, Argentina, and Chile, as well as new sections on Israel and Central Europe. As in his previous editions, Parker provides the reassurance of a simple number rating, predictions for future buying potential, and practical overviews of regions and grapes. Altogether, an indispensable resource from the man the Los Angeles Times calls "the most powerful critic of any kind."

INTRODUCTION HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE This book is both an educational manual and a buying guide; it is not an encyclopedic listing of wine producers and growers. It is intended to make you a more formidable, more confident wine buyer by providing you with sufficient insider''s information to permit the wisest possible choice when you make a wine-buying decision. The finest producers as well as the best known (not necessarily a guarantee of quality) from the world''s greatest viticultural regions are evaluated, as well as many of the current and upcoming releases available in the marketplace. If readers cannot find a specific vintage of a highly regarded wine, they still have at their fingertips a wealth of information and evaluations concerning the best producers for each viticultural area. Readers should be confident in knowing that they will rarely make a mistake (unless, of course, the vintage is absolutely dreadful) with a producer rated "outstanding" or "excellent" in this buyer''s guide. These producers are the finest and most consistent in the world. Taste is obviously subjective, but we have done our best to provide an impartial and comprehensive consumer''s guide, whose heart, soul, and value are the evaluations (star ratings) of the world''s finest producers. Note: Readers should recognize that I am fully responsible for the chapters on Bordeaux, Provence, the Rhône Valley, and California.
