From the Publisher
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."
