This is a book written in french about buying at the vinyards in france although due to personal circumstances i am no longer able to visit, through this book i can revisulise dozens of tastings i have had in almost all the French wine growing regions visited during the past 30 years. I always chose small growers (not more than 20000 bottles) with at least a star this reference book has never let me down indeed i usually carried it with me into the cave then they know that you are a serious wine drinker. It is a must for french wine lovers, occasionally, even the odd fine wine from the super market gets a mention not often though!!! For me it is a lovely book to brouse! It was first published inabout 1987 (for the 1st. 2 years there was an English edition)and it gets bigger every year. Try it.
