Description de l'ouvrage

15 décembre 1997
The First Complete Guide to the 1855 Bordeaux Classification--A Fascinating Account for Wine Lovers and an Authoritative Reference for Wine Industry Professionals The 1855 Bordeaux Classification has been a fixture of the wine world for almost 150 years, yet the origin of the system and the thinking behind it have never been thoroughly researched and presented in detail--until now. How was the 1855 classification drafted? Who was responsible? What was the rationale for the cru classe rating, and what criteria were used to determine inclusion and ranking? 1855: A History of the Bordeaux Classification answers these central questions and more. Drawing on primary source material gleaned through professional organizations, municipal archives, and author visits to each Medoc, Graves, and Sauternes property listed in the 1855 classification, this immaculately researched book demystifies every key aspect of the subject. Appendices give readers direct access to documents from the archives of the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce, selected Bordeaux wine price quotations, and other valuable information. With thoughtful conclusions on the continued viability of the 1855 classification today, this book is essential reading for informed wine industry professionals and wine lovers alike.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating details create the life and times of 1855 France 15 novembre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book kept surprising me, ultimately being very satisfying. When I ordered it, it was a bit intimidating. I feared a mass of impenetrable details. Most of the book in fact is appendices.The 200 or so pages of narrative contains nice insights into 19th c French life, but also shows wine lovers a very different era, when, for instance, the shippers were more important than the wineries.The book has one interesting fact after another. Did you know that the 1855 was NOT official? That there were a zillion similar ones? That the whole purpose was to set a price structure in the 18th century?A great read for the wine lover who is into every last detail.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wondering about Bordeaux? 3 novembre 2011
Par Corinna Clendenen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Here are your answers about Bordeaux, everything you'll ever want to know. Markham's book is both a great reference and an entertaining read; he manages to be thorough and detailed but at the same time write in lucid prose that goes down as easily as a well-aged wine. The illustrations and tables are terrific-- this is a book you can browse in on a cold winter night and learn all sorts of fascinating facts about Bordeaux grapes and the hills they grow in. This book forms the centerpiece on my wine bookshelf.
