Well researched and full of interesting information for those interested in the history of wine in Bordeaux.

Quite an interesting book especially regarding the early history of the area and its links with England and the way that the wine was blended with non-Bordeaux/non-French wines to satisfy the English market. The book concentrates mainly on the West Bank side of the Gironde and not much is written about the St. Emilion/Pomerol/Libourne side. There are a lot of numbers (grape tonnages etc., comparing years which is a bit difficult to follow) and names (as I didn't read it in one go but over a week long period I found that I had to check back a number of times to check who was who). I've sent the book to a friend of mine in NZ who is a red wine maker in the Marlborough area as he spent his early winemaking years in St. Emilion.

An excellent account of the way the Bordeaux Wine market works and of the influential families that dominated it especially in the post-war years.
