2.0 out of 5 stars Turgid, 24 April 2013
Worthy and comprehensive but completely turgid and therefore barely readable. It lacks the fun, soul and readability of her previous Vines, Grapes and Wines - which I found excellent - but now in need of an update. It has its uses; I refer to it often but it is akin to choosing wine based on a tech spec sheet of acidities, dry residual, alcohol and sulphur, rather than a tasting note.
