This fully revised edition of Wine Vintages contains completely up-to-date information from one of the world's most experienced and meticulous winetasters. Michael Broadbent clearly and succinctly answers the basic questions about what a vintage is and what conditions create a good or poor vintage, as well as how the vintage makes the wine and just why it is so important. He explores the effect of vintage not only on the wine’s style and quality, but also on the quantity produced in a given year.
More than a century of wine vintages are covered in this compact and chronological guide—which goes district by district and by wine type—while quick-reference quality ratings for each entry make it indispensable. Everything from classic French and other European wines to the forward-moving New World countries is covered, with crucial background on the character and readiness to drink of a wide array of vintages.
