Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book is an approximate 600 page work, produced on high quality gloss paper and well bound - just as well as it rather heavy! It is a pleasure to read a wine book written by someone with a scientific bent, which in my opinion is sadly lacking in many wine books at present. Having said that the book is not too technical for the average wine book reader and perhaps the fact that it is now 4 years old accounts for some less than rigorous assessments - for example the derivation of "minerality" in certain wines, could be taken to a higher level (in this regard the WineDoctors blog (2013) on this subject is worth a read). I have read some reviews of this book that it is rather rambling from one topic to another however I believe that he successfully manages to link the diverse topics together in his various chapters. It has taken me a rather long time to read but it is an enjoyable venture. He makes good use of charts and photos. My main gripe is that there is extensive reference to notes at the back of the book. I found continual flipping back and forth a bit annoying and wonder if the authors decision not to make them footnotes was a wise move. He explains why he used end notes rather than footnotes but I guess I disagree.
