There are few books that concentrate on the wines of the Loire but this new one from Jacqueline Friedrich is a great guide for anyone passionate about the Loire valley. This volume concentrates on Sancerre, Pouilly Fumé and the Sauvignon satellites and each appellation has it's own chapter. Key facts and figures, maps and information on a whole range of producers from the well known to the less so and recommendations for those up and coming producers too. It's easy to read so serves both as a book to enjoy and as an up to date reference for what's going on in the region today. If you love Sauvignon Blanc and want to delve a bit deeper I can highly recommend it.
