Unique yearly overview of the World Wine Industry,
This review is from: Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book 2013 (Hardcover)
The 2013 edition of the Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book is again excellent, each year it brings the latest information on the state of art with respect of all better wines made worldwide. If you are a wine lover and want to be kept up to date on the latest developments and vintages, this handy pocket book is certainly a must. The strongest feature is the information on the French and especially the Bordeaux wines, the latter having a special section. Each year has also a different colour supplement at the back of the book, this time on Champagne and other bubbles. Compared to the 2012 edition there are many updates, so for a few pounds you are kept well informed. Read and enjoy this (virtual) wine cellar and keep your earlier editions for reference!
Postscript: The wines of the Netherlands have never been mentioned, but I feel that as the quality has improved considerably in recent years, they also should in future be given a page like Luxembourg (new entry) and England & Wales.
