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.
A-Z guide for the Left bank and Right bank with each winery listed. Great photography and good layout.

I bought this thinking it would be filled with beautiful pictures and estates. Instead it is an encyclopedia. I returned it.Published on February 28, 2013 by P. Strayer
