Book Description

26 April 2012
Refreshingly witty and readable guide to the world's most famous wine region. Every producer in the world with ambitions to make great red wine still looks to Bordeaux for inspiration and the region is brought to life by Oz with his evocative descriptions and personal anecdotes, accompanied by stunning photographs and maps. Oz turns his spotlight on each of the famous Bordeaux wine areas (including St-Emilion, Pomerol, Margaux and Pauillac). He also recommends hundreds of affordable modern Bordeaux wines for drinking today. Returning to his wine roots, Oz shows how, whatever crises may be affecting the French wine industry in general and the lower end of the market in particular, Bordeaux, is on the whole, in optimistic mode. However much we now appreciate wine from all over the world, there is still nothing quite as magical as the best bottles from the best producers in this historic wine region. 'There is no better introduction to the world's most dazzling wine region.' Decanter 'A well-planned, well-executed, approachable book packed with information and illustrations.' The Sunday Times

A very informative read! Especially whilst staying in the area, the information came to life. Oz's descriptions of driving places helped my husband and I avoid getting lost on several occasions.

5.0 out of 5 stars All You Need to Know About Bordeaux 2 Oct 2012
By Pat B
This IS all you need to know about Bordeaux! I was lucky enough to get the man himself Oz Clarke sign a copy for me at the Three Wine Men event in Edinburgh and what a treat! Not only is this the most updated edition of Bordeaux wine regions that i've come across recently but it was great actually listening to Oz talk about the region at the wine event - he knows his wine stuff for sure! If you're looking for one book on wine and Bordeaux - this is it.
