It's not often you come across books that read as compelling, fictional accounts cast in the world of wine. Rarer still that such an account could be non-fiction and based, very accurately, on actual events. This is why this book is such a delight to read. Yes, Potter steeps us in the intoxicating atmosphere that is Burgundy, with the glowing tenor and timbre of anyone that has had the privilege to travel and spend some time there. But the real hook for me, as a wine lover and someone in the industry, was the realization that this whole story actually took place, building over centuries and culminating in the act of terroirism just a couple of years ago. The novel reads as much a biographical account of Aubert de Villaine as it does a crime plot, which only endears itself to the reader. The language, whilst never technical, is technically accurate, and an immense educational exercise whether you're a novice or an expert. A wonderful book to read and just as others have already mentioned, a great gift for just about anyone, but especially those tuned in to wine.

The crime was 15% of the book the rest was wine history. The book had no flow either.
