I bought this book on the recommendation of a Rhone wine grower who uses it as a local encyclopedia. It has everything you need if you are looking for detailed info on grapes, terrain & regional producers. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that so far it is a single edition, already 5 years old, with no talk of an update.

Without a doubt this is the most comprehensive wine book I have. The author provides a level of detail that is unsurpassed, descriptions of individual vineyards and terroirs, micro-climates even personalities of some of the wine makers. It is not a book for someone with a casual interest in the region, definitely one for a wine anorak. The authors knowledge is mind boggling and whets ones appetite for the wine he describes.

It was described to me as "the bible" for Cotes du Rhone and that is a very apt description of a wonderful book which made me want to jet over to the Rhone Valley and spend some quality time eating wonderful food and tasting glorious wines.

An excellent book, very informative on regions, growers and the more recent vintages. Recommended.
