An extraordinary and comprehensive study of the Rhone valley and its wonderful wines, plus a section on Rhone-style wines from around the world.
Employing a similar approach, Mr. Norman (at least IMHO) has even surpassed here his previous achievement with the 'Great Domaines of Burgundy'! Focusing on each of the different Rhone appellations, the book gives a superb account of the climate, geography, history, grape varieties, winemaking methods, vintage assessment and a multitude of tasting notes. All that as a background to the beautiful in-depth coverage of every important grower and winemaker.
A great book!
