"Clarke's style provides an easy read: Sharp without being sarcastic, witty without being flippant, he communicates well with novice and knowledgeable wine enthusiasts alike."--Wine Enthusiast

I had previously enjoyed Robert Parker's Bordeaux opus, but it is sorely in need of an update, so I decided to give Oz Clarke's new book (published in 2012) a try. I'm impressed. His writing is eloquent, entertaining, and informative, and the book is a welcome companion to the recent great vintages that are just now reaching consumers.

There are a few key differences between Clarke's approach and Parker's. Clarke focuses on the region first, specific chateaux second, and specific vintages hardly at all. If you don't yet understand the difference between the Medoc, Graves, and St. Emilion, you will after reading this volume. In addition, Clarke's book is beautifully printed and illustrated in color, with detailed maps and high quality photos. Another difference is that Clarke doesn't believe in numerical scores and barely touches on specific vintages. As for which chateaux to seek out, he focuses mainly on the "affordable" (not cheap) end of the market -- wines priced between $15 and $100 -- rather than the classified growths. The only thing missing is more detail about which vintages of specific wines to seek out or avoid. It seems he may have pulled his punches to avoid alienating the Bordeaux establishment.

What a great book for Bordeaux wine lovers or people that want to learn more about this region. It is very detailed and provides a lot of useful information about the various wines in the area. Especially when you are looking at whether to buy/keep certain wines. Oz Clarke knows his stuff and writes really well!!
