This book covers the history of the red and white wine estates of Bordeaux's Grands Crus Classés, along with a guide to the great vintages, and an address book to the vineyards. The landmark creation of the Grands Crus Classés in 1855 set the benchmark for wine quality; the sixty-one reds of the Médoc and twenty-seven whites of Sauternes are considered the finest wines in the world. The care that goes into the growing, cultivating, vinification, and aging of these exceptional wines is an art, and the picturesque domaines where this craft is perfected are as beautiful as their wines are refined. Newly commissioned photographs captures the region throughout the seasons, and this handsome volume is both an important reference for any wine lover's library as well as a glorious voyage inside the prestigious domaines. It is the ideal gift for wine aficionados everywhere.

Frau von Hohenstein
Unverzichtbar für den WeinkellerReviewed in Germany on 1 November 2018
Hier auf Hohenstein nennen wir ja einen großen Weinkeller unser eigen. Und da jedes Jahr so einige Flaschen hinzukommen ( und einige auch wegkommen *hicks* ), so ist man gezwungen sich zu informieren damit man die richtigen Bouteillen einlagert. Dafür ist das Buch eine gute Informationsquelle was Bordeaux-Weine angeht.
Pretty and interestingReviewed in the United States on 22 October 2020
Its a pretty book, and interesting. Although I am trying to figure out why Châteaux Léoville-Las-Cases is not in it.
