Première phrase
There can be no question that the romance, if not mysticism, of opening a bottle of Bordeaux from a famous chateau has a grin and allure that are hard to resist. Lire la première page

Still the best book on Bordeaux, but imcomplete 18 octobre 2004
Par Franken Sense - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I consider the latest iteration of Parker's Bordeaux book to be the best on the subject. While I do not agree with Parker or just about anyone else regarding the rating of Italian wines, Parker is right on target in his ratings for Bordeaux.

I find it interesting that Parker is a fan of the rich and opulent micro wines coming out of Pomerol and St. Emilion. There are strict Bordeaux traditionalists that don't care for these wines. I think they are great and usually agree with Parker. They simply add another dimension to the many styles of wine being made in the greatest wine producing area of the world.

Parker is extremely consistent and the only other taster that comes close is Stephen Tanzer. The Wine Spectator and James Suckling are pretty good, although I think they overrate too many wines in subpar vintages. Ironically, Spectator is not as big a fan of the decadent wines Parker likes from the right bank.

One caveat I have with the fourth addition is that useful tasting notes from some prior vintages for certain wines have been taken out and a handful of wines reviewed in the last version of the book are not even reviewed in this book. However, the book is still great if you're into Bordeaux.

Clive Coates's recent book on Bordeaux offers a good and interesting alternative, but it is not as complete nor does it have the depth of notes available from Parker.

My copy is already dog-eared 10 janvier 2004
Par Stefanie N - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I just received this book for Christmas and it is already dog-eared. When many people think of Bordeaux they think of stratospherically priced wines. Actually for every $400 bottle of Chateau Latour 2000, there is a wonderful $25 bottle by an unsung producer. $25 may not be cheap, but if drinks like a $50 one I'm pretty happy. This book helps me find those lesser-known producers.
While Robert Parker certainly heaps praise on the most famous wines when they are worthy, he does not hesitate to criticize them when they fall short. He constantly points the readers to great values.
The book is organized by region and then by chateau. For many of the chateaux there is a copious amount of information: some history of the producer, a list of the wine's component grapes, and detailed descriptions of significant vintages for the last ten years.. Be sure to read the introductory sections for Parker's take on how richness of flavor is attained (strict pruning of vines, letting the fruit ripen, abstaining from filtering) and for much encouraging news about Bordeaux wine today. For one thing, he says that while the price gap between First Growths and unclassifieds can be great, never has the quality gap been so narrow. Great news for us bargain hunters !

The publication date for the Kindle edition is misleading 12 novembre 2013
Par Joe the Critic - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
This review applies specifically to the Kindle edition.

The last time Robert Parker updated Bordeaux was for the 4th edition in 2003. It is a well written, informative book, but it is sadly out of date and little more than acuriosity for readers interested in the past 10 or so vintages. When the publisher created a Kindle version of the 2003 book,they apparently gave it a 2013 publication date. This is deceptive and misleading. This content appears to be from the 2003 edition, repackaged for Kindle, and therefore still badly out-dated.

Bordeaux, a consumers guide to the world's finest wines 11 mars 2009
Par Mr. F. D. Stuart - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As with many books on wines, this one is rapidly becoming our of date in that it goes no further than 2001. This means resorting to Wine Advocate, a quartely publication which means that researching more recent vintages becomes laborious. An enquiry as to the fifth edition produced a "not anticipated" response. The age of this edition also means that the older vintages from 1982 are becoming of less interest as a good many of these wines, particularly at the cru borgeois end and others are less available than they once were. Can Mr Parker not be persuaded to let us know when the next edition is likely to be.

Indispensable Guide 30 septembre 2005
Par Robert S. Haught - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Recently I toured wineries in Bordeaux. Robert Parker's book is the indispensable guide to wineries in that region. He discusses each estate in detail and is quite frank in his reviews. He also recommended some hotels and restaurants, which proved to be excellent recommendations.
