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
