About this title


The Intelligent Guides to Wines and Top Vineyards focus on classic wine-producing regions. This guide discusses the wines of the Left Bank of Bordeaux, including the Médoc, Péssac-Leognan and Graves, and Sauternes.

The guide is divided into two parts. The first part of the guide discusses the regions, and explains the character and range of the wines. The second part profiles the producers. There are detailed profiles of the leading producers, showing how each winemaker interprets the local character, and mini-profiles of other important estates. 

Description of each area includes its geography, the grape varieties that are grown, how these relate to the styles of wines that are produced, wines from entry level to icons, currents trends and how styles are evolving. References wines are recommended for each region. The guide is illustrated with photographs of each area, topological maps to show the terrain, road maps to identify the locations of estates, and information on recent vintages. 

Profiles range from chateaux that may dominate an appellation to small chateaux that define the cutting edge. The profiles identify the best of tradition and innovation in the region. Each chateau profile describes the producer's aims for his wines, and the personality and philosophy behind them, together with essential information for planning a visit, including address and map location, phone and email contact details, and whether appointments are needed. 
This Guide is the indispensable means for understanding Bordeaux,tasting its wines, and finding the top châteaux. It is updated regularly to have the latest information.
