The Serious Wine Taster Must Own This Book,
This review is from: Michael Broadbent's Wine Tasting (Mitchell Beazley Wine Guides) (Hardcover)
One of the few landmark books in the field, to be treasured alongside Amerine and Roessler's "Wines: Their Sensory Evaluation", and Peynaud's "The Taste of Wine". Broadbent's much-revised and -reprinted classic combines a hypersensitive palate, immense vocabulary, irrepressible wit with an encyclopaedic memory. A perfect amalagam from this well-seasoned British wine writer, judge, auctioneer and claret connoisseur. The only flaw is not of Broadbent's doing; rather, it is the incredibly stingy publisher, Mitchell Beazley, who produced this book in 1-point "Versailles", a beautiful typeface rendered nearly unreadable without benefit of a magnifying glass. Broadbent deserves much better than this slap across the eyeballs.
