5.0 out of 5 stars the ultimate quality in depth vintage guide, 13 Jan 2009

This review is from: MICHAEL BROADBENT''S POCKET VINTAGE WINE COMPANION: Over Fifty Years of Tasting Over Three Centuries of Wine (Hardcover)
As a restaurant professional with an increasing involvement and interest in wine/Champagnes I was looking for a book that would give a detailed review of past vintages. This book is brilliant.... WARNING - Michael Broadbent drinks & reviews wines only a small % of people will every drink but his review of regions v are excellent and he also reviews some of the more reasonably priced wines.
The book covers Bordeaux, Burgundy, Alsace, Germany, California, Champagne & Port. It covers vintages of the last 100-300 years. (last 100 years are done in more detail)
The book give an overview of each vintage - conditions, growing, flowing, harvest and rates vintages 1-5 star. Then broadbent includes reviews of wines he has drunk of each vintage rating each wine 1-5 star and when to drink the wine for best enjoyment.

A great guide for wine lovers and those entering into a career with food & drink.

This review is from: MICHAEL BROADBENT''S POCKET VINTAGE WINE COMPANION: Over Fifty Years of Tasting Over Three Centuries of Wine (Hardcover)
This is an excellent update to the original Vintage Wine with many updates to the tasting notes of older vintages and the addition of the vintages since 2002.

Well worth the money to keep this very usefull resource up to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for every wine lover?, 25 Feb 2009

This review is from: MICHAEL BROADBENT''S POCKET VINTAGE WINE COMPANION: Over Fifty Years of Tasting Over Three Centuries of Wine (Hardcover)
Yes, it is essential reading for every wine lover - as long as it's the 'Old World' you love. Fortunately I am and Michael Broadbent is too long in the tooth to resort to the ridiculous points system beloved by others.
His notes are instantly approachable and for me invaluable when choosing the next bottle.
