The core of this book is an assessment of more than 1,000 significant wine producers in Bordeaux. For each property, Stephen considers its history, viticulture, vinification, wine styles and vintages. But this is more than simply a producer-by-producer reference work; Stephen analyses the information he presents in order to give a clear picture of the current trends in the region. This is an honest account of a wine region which is marvellous in parts, underperforming in others and preoccupied with its place in a new global wine market.
