Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled at the edges. Lower panel faded toward the spine. Text bright and tight.
Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “The author has taken great care to reach a balanced selection, including not only the famous names from France but wines from five other countries, and giving particular emphasis to the new stars from California and Australia. Taking each property in turn, she describes the site, its peculiar characteristics — soil, climate, grape varieties — and its history and reputation as a producer of fine wine. She has travelled extensively throughout the world’s vineyards and cellars and has visited every property in this very special collection. We are thus presented with an insider’s view of the contrasting methods, opinions, conditions and attitudes wherever great wine is produced. Richly illustrated with colour photographs, almost all specially commissioned, and with maps and charts, the result is a superb celebration of greatness, based upon the author’s immense knowledge of the world’s most exiting wine properties.”
