It is also increasingly true that fine (even good) local restaurants will have wine lists that are tailored to their menus and the pocketbooks of their local clientele. Even in that case, this book provides a general overview of what one might look for and it offers insight into generally better vintages as well as into vintages that are most ready to be enjoyed now. The general vintage/drinkability charts in the book can be copied and are good pocket reference to take along when dining.
The bulk of the book is organized by country and by major wine region within each country. There is an alphabetical series of listings that includes named estates, types of grapes and something about notable producers and Johnson gives each wine that they produce and that he selects for inclusion a 'star' rating for typical quality. He uses a well-explained system of typography and symbols for his ratings rather than assigning numbers to wines.
Johnson is perhaps the world's most trusted taster, wine writer and source for this information. Don't miss him!
While one should develop their own taste from experience, this book is a useful
guide for choosing wines from an unfamiliar area as well as selecting vintages.
