“There is no better introduction to the world's most dazzling wine region.” --Decanter
Written by one of the world's most respected and knowledgeable wine experts, this is the finest one-volume, full-color introduction to Bordeaux. Oz Clarke has created a refreshingly witty and readable guide to France's famous wine region, filled with evocative descriptions, engaging personal anecdotes, stunning images, and practical information. He turns his spotlight on the most notable Bordeaux wine areas (including St-Emilion, Pomerol, Margaux, and Pauillac), examines the state of French winemaking, suggests best buys, and recommends hundreds of affordable, modern chateaux where one can enjoy a glass. This is Oz Clarke at his witty, incisive best.
