Description

WHEN THINGS TURN OUT right for Bordeaux, as they frequently do, its wines are sublime. They inspire many thousands of tributes, from Samuel Pepys’ succinct reviews to the most rhapsodic of Michael Broadbent’s tasting notes – in short, over 300 years of wine writing. On Bordeaux is a collection of the best bits, from our best-loved wine writers, critics and commentators, set around the themes that make Bordeaux tick – the history, the vintage, the vineyards, the aristocracy, the rivalry between Left and Right, dining out…

Contributions from Hugh Johnson, Fiona Beckett, Baron Elie de Rothschild, Mathieu Chadronnier, Christian Seely, Joe Fattorini, Ian Maxwell Campbell, Fiona Morrison MW, John Salvi, Bill Blatch, Peter Vinding-Diers and more.

"If you want to know why Bordeaux is so much talked about, read this book from the most knowledgeable insiders and the most entertaining outsiders"  - Steven Spurrier

The Producer

Academie du Vin Library

Our aim at the Académie du Vin Library is to bring you the very best wine writing of the past, the present and the future. Some of our books are undisputed classics – refreshed for today’s reader but without losing any of the charm, or wisdom, of a more innocent time. Our new titles are, we believe, destined to become the classics of the future: easy to read, easy on the eye, and all with something new and important to say.

We like to think of ourselves not just as publishers and booksellers, but as a community of wine lovers, united by a passion for learning more about what makes the wine world so special. We hope you will join us. Happy reading!
