I have many books on wine, but never purchased one on Bordeaux simply because most were weighty tomes of endless minutia , I had read a couple of articles by Oz so knew what the style would be like and managed to get a second hand copy here that was new as far as I could see.

Oz manages to keep the book informative without being boring or long winded, he also covers other aspects of the area which is useful, I have been to the area and all in the book easily translates to that before you, it is not often I read a book from cover to cover almost non stop but I did with this one, for anyone wanting a comprehensive volume on Bordeaux without pretensions or stuffiness this is the one.

The delivery time was as promised however the sleeve of the book was dirty and torn in the corners. Very disappointing as it was for a Christmas present and embarrassed to give it as one

Fantastic book, a really comprehensive but approachable guide to everything you need to know. Oz is a great writer, I love his style.

Allthough it was clear the book was subjected to some use the condition was good. For the price it was first class. No negative comments.

Very good - used on a holiday in Bordeaux at the time of the Fetes du Vins and it was invaluable.

A very informative read! Especially whilst staying in the area, the information came to life. Oz's descriptions of driving places helped my husband and I avoid getting lost on several occasions.

This IS all you need to know about Bordeaux! I was lucky enough to get the man himself Oz Clarke sign a copy for me at the Three Wine Men event in Edinburgh and what a treat! Not only is this the most updated edition of Bordeaux wine regions that i've come across recently but it was great actually listening to Oz talk about the region at the wine event - he knows his wine stuff for sure! If you're looking for one book on wine and Bordeaux - this is it.
