New Edition of the definitive study with a fully revised and updated vintage guide.

The wines of Bordeaux have never enjoyed a greater reputation and are universally recognized as among the world's finest. In this new edition of his prize-winning survey, Stephen Brook, a foremost expert on Bordeaux, provides an unrivaled survey of the region and its wines. As well as incisive portraits of the leading properties and their wines, he provides a detailed look at the region's lesser-known areas and their top chateau. Providing essential reference to each appellation, from Medoc through Graves to Pomerol and Saint-Emilion, Brook examines the full range of wines available, from the most reputable producers to the lesser-known, up-and-coming properties. Each commune and appellation is explored in detail, along with an analysis of stylistic and wine-making issues affecting more than 1,000 significant wine producers. Brook's definitive study concludes with a fully revised and updated vintage guide.
