great for all wine buffs,
This review is from: The Wine Buyer's Guide (Hardcover)
Parker, love him or otherwise, is the recognised 'Guru' of wine scoring and assessment of a particular wine/vintage. As a collector and drinker of wine I read books written by a number of great writers. Parker is not really a writer, more a reviewer. These two books are for reference purposes, encyclopaedic in style and highly authoritative. I use the books to track wines and get a feel for how they may evolve and what they might be worth. Some I drink some I keep for sale as investments. I think the books are out on their own, the definitive word on wines and how they're rated. The French section; an entire volume, is incredibly comprehensive and detailed.
