Presentation :

This Complete Guide to Bordeaux Vintages 1870-2020 innovates in the field of wine publishing: it is the first work to cover 150 years of vintages in depth and it is totally unique in its cultural scope. For wine lovers and collectors, this is the essential guide, not only to discovering what happened during a particular period, but also to providing broader historical and social context. Each year is accompanied by an important event or milestone, a song or musical composition and a film that encapsulates the spirit of the times as well as the world in which the vintage was born.

Writer Neal Martin offers a witty, personal take on the traditional wine handbook, with notes not only on growing seasons, harvests and the wines themselves, but also on cultural phenomena ranging from Sherlock Holmes to Beyonce, via Casablanca. Innovative, inspired and addictive to read, the Complete Guide to Bordeaux Vintages is an essential addition to your library and cellar.

The author:

Neal Marti n 's wine career began in 1996 as a wine buyer for Japan Airlines, where he specialized in Bordeaux and Burgundy wines. In 2006, wine critic Robert Parker asked Neal to join his team at Wine Advocate, where he was the first non-American to hold the position. In December 2012, Neal self-published a 600-page book, Pomerol, which became the reference text for the region, and which won the inaugural André Simon John Avery Prize and the Louis Roederer Chairman's Award in 2013. He took over Bordeaux coverage when Parker retired in 2014. In 2018, Neal accepted a position at Vinous, where he covers Bordeaux and Burgundy wines to the present. His reviews and ratings are cited by négociants around the world and, over 25 years, he has accumulated considerable first-hand knowledge of mature vintages.
