Overview

Oz Clarke's Bordeaux: The Wines, the Vineyards, the Winemakers by Oz Clarke

Bordeaux has always been the center of attention in the wine world, with some of the greatest wines, the most historic châteaux, and the highest level of glamour and prestige. And, despite increasing competition from new classic wine areas around the world, it still accounts for more than 90 percent of global wine futures and auction markets.

In his trademark A-to-Z format, Oz profiles more than three hundred of Bordeaux’s most important châteaux as well as their second wines and discount brands, and recommends and describes hundreds of other châteaux. With color photos, wine labels, charts, and maps throughout, this volume covers each of Bordeaux’s subregions in sumptuous detail—fully exploring the area’s history, geography, soils, and grape varieties.

Oz is at his witty, incisive best on this region, which he has both championed and challenged for years. With his vivid descriptions of the area as well as his knowledge of classic and best-value wines, this is an essential book for all lovers of Bordeaux wine.
