Bordeaux: v. 1: Medoc & Graves (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Written by a multi-award-winning writer, this new addition to the "Classic Wine Library" is the complete, essential reference to the wine laws, the chateaux and estates, and wines from the Medoc, Pessac-Leognan, and Graves. The numerous wines from Bordeaux's Left Bank are detailed in this comprehensive and exciting new addition to the "Classic Wine Library" series. In this the first edition of two brand-new titles on Bordeaux, Stephen Brook, a highly regarded Bordeaux expert, provides in-depth, essential information on the various appellations of this area, including the Medoc, Pessac-Leognan, and Graves, and the world-famous communes of the Haut-Medoc such as Pauillac, Margaux, St-Julian, and St-Estephe. He gives a thorough explanation of both the old and new wine laws of these regions and the terroir, plus he explores the range of world-famous wines - from the red Cabernet Sauvignon-based Pauillacs to the luscious sweet whites of Sauternes - produced by the most reputable chateaux and growers as well as the lesser-known, up-and-coming properties. The book also features nine maps of the wine areas.
