This is the book I've been waiting for. Anyone who thinks they know anything about this wine MUST buy Wine Report 2004. The concept is so blisteringly simple, I can't fathom why it wasn't thought of long ago. The world of wine is changing so fast that not even the experts can keep up, so the likes of you and I have no chance. That's why Tom Stevenson put together a team of almost 40 wine experts to report on their own specialist subjects each year (and they're all A-list experts). It's full of inside information about what has happened over the last 12 months, plus the latest vintage reports for absolutely everywhere. Sometimes the most obscure wine areas have the largest chapters! Each expert provides Top 10s of the greatest, best value, fastest improving and up-and-coming producers. There are also Top 10s for greatest, best-value and most unusual wines, although it is not meant to a buyer's guide. In fact most of the wines are not even available on the UK market. If you want to buy the best Australian Chardonnay under a fiver, forget this book, but if want to know what the cutting-edge wines are from emerging wine regions or discover new and unusual wines from the world's classic wine regions, then Wine Report is for you. It's a book that won't suit everybody. It assumes a certain level of knowledge - thank goodness! It's fantastic. I cannot wait for Wine Report 2005.

Firstly - I think it amazing that Mr Stevenson should review his own book, not spell out the fact that he is the author, and give the book five stars.

Secondly, it is pretty shoddy to suggest that Amazon customers should thumb through copies in bookshops, when they intend to buy the book from Amazon.

Thirdly, it is quite true that hardly any of the wines can be found in the UK. What is wrong with pointing this out?

Fourthly, I am not at all sure that chasing after 'cutting edge' wine is altogether a good thing (unless, as Mr Stevenson and some of the commentators rather sneeringly suggest, money is no object). Is wine an appropriate medium for high fashion?

In all, I find this book rather less impressive than the author does.

Superb in concept and execution. This book provides the winelover with all the detail and up to the minute news about wine regions across the world. This book is a must have. Tom Stevenson is to be congratulated in pulling all the contributions together in such a uniform and coherent way and I hope that he will have the energy to do the same every year. Winelovers should support him in this endeavour by purchasing this book and recommending it to others.

A very interesting book for anyone who likes a tipple and has anything more than a passing interest in what's in the bottle.
I was particularly interested in the inclusion of Lebanese wine, which, as the section author says, has shown remarkable technical improvement and diversification in recent years. Ksara's Cuvee de Printemps 2001 is indeed a "fabulous, fruity summer red" and the Massaya 2001 Reserve, which has already scooped prizes in Europe, is a revelation.
I also enjoyed the sections on champagne (Mrs Mrad's favourite tipple) and organic wines.
The great thing about the book is its honest, evident in the treatment of Chilean wine. At ten pounds, it is surely one of the year's great bargains.

Ever since I bought this book I have been trying to get it back from other members of the household. Mrs Mrad was particularly taken by the section on champagne, and I was very pleased by the survey of organic wine.
As a native of the Middle East, however, I particularly savoured the section on Lebanese wine, which really is now emerging as a country with surprises, variety and good value. The wines recommended by the writer are uniformly good.
The book is excellent value for money.

I was disappointed, but this needs to be qualified. I am hugely influenced by Tom Stevenson's opinions on Alsacian wine. I bought this hoping it would update his fabulous 1993 tome. (This was in preparation for a wine-buying trip to Alsace.) Rather less of Tom than I had hoped. I have no reason to consider that the guide is not otherwise good at what it purports to do.

As Tom Stevenson points out in his reply - this book is not and was never intended to be a wine buyers guide. What it does do is provide an invaluable annual update on the world of wine for people who are seriously interested in the subject - not just those in the trade.It is a unique, ground breaking annual that should be on the bookshelves of all those with more than just a passing interest in the world of wine.
