9781862059504: Oz Clarke Bordeaux: A New Look at the World's Most Famous Wine Region

Refreshingly witty and readable guide to the world's most famous wine region. Every producer in the world with ambitions to make great red wine still looks to Bordeaux for inspiration and the region is brought to life by Oz with his evocative descriptions and personal anecdotes, accompanied by stunning photographs and maps. Oz turns his spotlight on each of the famous Bordeaux wine areas (including St-Emilion, Pomerol, Margaux and Pauillac). He also recommends hundreds of affordable modern Bordeaux wines for drinking today. Returning to his wine roots, Oz shows how, whatever crises may be affecting the French wine industry in general and the lower end of the market in particular, Bordeaux, is on the whole, in optimistic mode. However much we now appreciate wine from all over the world, there is still nothing quite as magical as the best bottles from the best producers in this historic wine region. 'There is no better introduction to the world's most dazzling wine region.' Decanter 'A well-planned, well-executed, approachable book packed with information and illustrations.' The Sunday Times

About the Author:

Oz Clarke is one of the world's leading wine experts, known for his phenomenal palate, irreverent style, accurate predictions, and enthusiasm for life in general and wine in particular. He is the author of many award-winning books on wine, including most recently, Wine A-Z, The History of Wine in 100 Bottles, and Grapes & Wines: A Comprehensive Guide to Varieties and Flavours (co-authored with Margaret Rand). Before wine took over his life in 1984, Oz was a full-time actor and singer, appearing in West End hit shows and touring with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Alongside his entertaining BBC television and radio broadcasts, he currently presents a series of concerts, Drink to Music! with the acclaimed Armonico Consort. Oz is also sports mad.

Review:

PRAISE FOR OZ CLARKE"I admire the energy which comes from every page, the enormous feeling of discovery which Clarke always generates, and which makes him such a fine advocate for wine."--WINE MAGAZINE"Clarke's style provides an easy read: Sharp without being sarcastic, witty without being flippant, he communicates well with novice and knowledgeable wine enthusiasts alike."--WINE ENTHUSIAST
