Oz Clarke Bordeaux
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.
