The most general unbiased worldwide wine guide available,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia (Hardcover)
This is without a doubt the best worldwide review of wines available. It is unbiased but not bland and opinionated, in the most rigorously fair way. For the uninitiated it covers the very basics of wine production and can be read as a book and for the expert it is a vital reference.
A brief period of over-pricing is behind it and it should be considered the standard reference.
The only request that I would have is that the green pages of the first and second editions (where the author gave his personal recommendations in each wine region) be reintroduced: they added colour and were greatly appreciated by those who shared the tastes of the author.
