5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, honest read and great value 6 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I have been a fan of Chris Kissack's website for some time and I was pleased to see his straightalking and informed style is now available in a book.

The guide contains cut-down info on most major Chateaux as well as Chris' picks for value etc. I think the vintage guides are very good too and refreshingly honest where most critics get carried away with the hype. It also contains info on the recently released (but disappointing) 2011 en primeur campaign too, so it's bang up to date, at the time of reviewing anyway. There's also some info at the back on cellar basics such as storing, buying, serving etc. Again, Chris's unpretentious style makes these worth reading even if you think you know it all already.

This is a really entertiaing read and well worth keeping as a reference guide> The price is excellent too as you can own this book (although it is a pocket guide size) for little more than a cost of a single issue of Decanter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written and entertaining 12 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book gives a very good introduction to Bordeaux wines and vineyards and also gives you valuable tips on wines that are maybe not so famous but good value for money. It also gives you the history of a lot of the more famous or interesting chateaus as well as information on what is happening right now. It is quite impressive how it manages to be relevant for both the novice and the master at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal! 30 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback
A small book ideally suited to small places, most of the year mine will live in the loo, but in September it will be mainly in my glove box until arrival at the supermarket when the back pocket will serve as its temporary home.

Well written, clear and incisive, it's all a pocket book should be. Quick reference and fun to read I recommend this thoroughly to anyone who enjoys wine and owns a privy.
