5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must-have for foreigners in France 25 novembre 2013
Par isil
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Excellent for getting started and even for getting intermediate. It is a very good guide book as well to find your own taste. I read other books on wine for beginners, in comparison, this one really stands out. It has a nice balance of really teaching you with clear examples and putting a nice personal tone.

The Kindle version of this book is actually a summary of the book in paperback, but with the way you click on it as you buy it, you might think they're the same. They're not, this one is considerably concise. Eventually I bought the paperback and I find the complete version excellent for getting started & as a guidance for french wine. I just wished that it was clearer that the Kindle book is different.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 French Wine, Class by Glass 16 octobre 2001
Par Bill Marsano - Publié sur
Ed McCarthy and his wife, Mary Ewing-Mulligan, began with "Wine for Dummies" in 1995, and they keep getting better at it as they work from big picture to small. After covering all of the wine world in one book they have narrowed their focus in subsequent "dummies" books on red wine, white wine and champagne. Now focusing geographically, they tackle French and Italian wines in two new books. The French book will tell the tale here because French is the most daunting wine for teacher and student alike.
That because almost all French wines are named for places (regions, towns, chateaus) instead of the grapes they're made from, which is the practice in most other countries. Thus your Bordeaux could be made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and most often is--but one of the most famous and most expensive Bordeaux, Petrus, is made almost entirely from Merlot. Not that you'd know from the label. You want Chardonnay? The French make it by the long ton but rarely label it as such, preferring instead something like Puligny-Montrachet. Then there is the collection of "cru" classifications for individual estates. This apparent perversity actually reflects the French belief that "where" means more than "what"; that the native heath marks wine and other foods just as a local accent marks you and me.
That's why this book is the test: Can the authors penetrate and even elucidate this maze? To their credit and my amazement they can and do. They are wine experts but primarily wine educators. They know this stuff cold but as <teachers> want you to learn and love this stuff as much as they do.
In fewer than 300 pages they achieve a great deal--they encourage, instruct, dispel myths, point toward good buys, discuss changing wine-making styles, celebrate new discoveries and pretty much everything else except feed the hungry and clothe the poor.
So if you're interested in French wine or know someone who is, you'll be better of buying this book than almost any other. The price is great and the authors are good company--they can <write> as well as teach.
Bill Marsano is a contributing editor of Hemispheres, United Airlines' in-flight magazine, for which he frequently writes on wine. In 1999 he won a James Beard medal for writing on wine and spirits.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 It helped this dummy! 27 juillet 2002
Par therosen - Publié sur
This book helps one navigate the strange world of French wine - where the land is more important than the type of grape.
The books starts with several chapters on why French wine is considered such high quality, and what the history is behind it. Here's you'll learn about the history and categorizations of wine, as well as overview of the archaic & mind-numbing labelling system.
The second section covers France's high profile wine regions, including Bordeaux, Burgundy & Beautjolais. If all you know about Bordeaux and Burgundy is, "They ain't in Napa", you're in the same boat as me, and the book can give you some guidance.
The third part covers France's other wine regions, including a section on Champaigne. (Champaigne does count as wine - another lesson for me!) This is helpful if you're traveling in France and want to know what local wines to try.
The book closes with answers to commonly asked questions about French wine, as well as exposing one to the myths of French wine.
Overall, the book is a great primer and eduational tool for the novice at French wine. (Or wine in general!) It'll help you with the history and feel of the French wine industry. Perhaps it can guide you at the wine shop, though likely not as much as knowledgable individual.
It passes the, "Would I bring it with me to France?" test. (I did, and it helped me know what wine to try by region) It doesn't pass the, "Will I be any better ordering wine at a restaurant?" test. (I'm not)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Resource on French Wine 20 août 2003
Par John C. Case - Publié sur
This book hits it right on the head. An excellent, easy to read reference guide on French wine. The book is well-organized and provided good tips and pronunciation keys to help navigate through the French language. This book is a must for the professional or amateur alike and a good value for the money. Useful appendixes contain vintage charts and a handy guide to classes of wine under the rather complex French wine laws.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 The Mini Edition of French Wine for Dummies 6 mars 2014
Par Aaron - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Very mini the ~300 kilobits should have given me all the clue I needed to decide that even though they list it as all 318 pages, there was no way with all the graphics in a typical dummies book. All in all it looks to be a pretty decent beginners overview of french wine I was hoping to get more than just Bordeaux and Champagne, seems like a good to get your terminology correct and heck the pronunciation guides are helpful too. Don't buy this is your expecting more than about 30-40 pages of the book even though they list this as 318 pages.

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Beware that the Kindle version of the book (so-called mini edition) is crippled. It should be sold under separate listing since practically a half of the content is missing.
