Stephen Brook's masterly volume, now updated, is the essential reference guide to the wines of Bordeaux.
"A fresh and authoritative addition to the Bordeaux library."
Eric Asimov, The New York Times
"This new edition is the ultimate guide to perhaps the greatest wine area in the world. Whether you use the book in your local wine store or tote it on a journey to Bordeaux itself, this book is definitive. And magnificent."
The wines of Bordeaux are universally recognized as being among the finest in the world and in this fully revised and updated edition of his classic text, renowned wine expert Stephen Brook provides an unrivalled survey of the region and its wines.
The Complete Bordeaux offers detailed information on the many communes and appellations of Bordeaux as well as descriptions and assessments of all its major properties. As well as incisive portraits of the leading properties and their produce, Stephen Brook provides a detailed look at Bordeaux's lesser-known areas and chateaux.
There is also an invaluable vintage guide to the last four decades. Bordeaux encapsulates an incredible 13,000 wineries throughout 54 appellations and this book includes a thorough explanation of Bordeaux's history, terroir, and winemaking styles.
A fresh and authorative addition to the Bordeaux library. Brook is a wine writer whose restraint does not undermine his authority... He probes deeply and offers a clear-eyed look at 21st-century Bordeaux. - The New York Times
