The World of Fine Wine magazine is a very high end publication aimed at those with an almost fanatical interest in the subject of wine, it is beautifully produced and in both layout and its wonderful illustrations is a treat to the eye. This book on Bordeaux is the third in (I hope) an ongoing series of such works from the editorial team of the magazine the others being The Finest Wines of Tuscany and The Finest Wines of Champagne.
Produced with the same attention to detail and quality of copy as the quarterly publication these books provide what is essentially a series of vignettes of the key producers, their wines, and what makes those wines what they are. Fascinating family histories and portaits of individual characters provide the stories behind the wines and help to make these books an invaluable reference source as well as being eminently readable and perfect to pick up and dip into. If you like decent wines you should love these.
If I had a criticism (albeit of the barrel scraping variety) it is that they are all uniformly bound in a semi-soft cover which as with everything else is of high quality but will it stand up to constant use?

A really good write up of Bordeaux and its finest wines. Not too long but gives a very good insight into the area, the foremost wines and the people behind them. A well-produced book it is a handy reference which is easy and pleasurable to dip into as the occasion demands.

Excellent book of the selected chateaux. However their selection is somewhat strange. Some less importat one have been reviewed but many better known are included only in tables.
