Stephen Brook's masterly volume, now fully revised and updated, is the essential reference guide to the wines of Bordeaux

The wines of Bordeaux are universally recognized as being among the finest in the world and in this fully revised and updated edition of his classic text, renowned wine expert Stephen Brook provides an unrivalled survey of the region and its wines.

The Complete Bordeaux offers detailed information on the many communes and appellations of Bordeaux along with descriptions and assessments of all its major properties. As well as incisive portraits of the leading properties and their produce, Stephen Brook provides a detailed look at Bordeaux's lesser-known areas and chateaux. 

There is also an invaluable vintage guide to the last four decades. Bordeaux encapsulates an incredible 13,000 wineries throughout 54 appellations and this book includes a thorough explanation of Bordeaux's history, terroir and winemaking styles.

More than just a producer-by-producer reference work - Brooks analyzes the information he presents in order to give a clear picture of the current trends in the region. He provides assessments of more than 1,000 significant wine producers in Bordeaux, considering its history, viticulture, vinication, wine styles and vintages.
