5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, honest read and great value, 6 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Pocket Guide to the wines of Bordeaux (Kindle Edition)
I have been a fan of Chris Kissack's website for some time and I was pleased to see his straightalking and informed style is now available in a book.

The guide contains cut-down info on most major Chateaux as well as Chris' picks for value etc. I think the vintage guides are very good too and refreshingly honest where most critics get carried away with the hype. It also contains info on the recently released (but disappointing) 2011 en primeur campaign too, so it's bang up to date, at the time of reviewing anyway. There's also some info at the back on cellar basics such as storing, buying, serving etc. Again, Chris's unpretentious style makes these worth reading even if you think you know it all already.

This is a really entertiaing read and well worth keeping as a reference guide> The price is excellent too as you can own this book (although it is a pocket guide size) for little more than a cost of a single issue of Decanter.
