Step inside the chateaux of the fabled red wines of the Medoc and white wines of Sauternes on this insider's tour, complete with tasting notes for the great vintages.
The landmark creation of the Grands Crus Classes in 1855 set the benchmark for wine quality around the world. The sixty-one reds of the Medoc and twenty-seven whites of Sauternes are considered the finest wines in the world. The care that goes into creating these exceptional wines is an art, and the picturesque domaines where this craft is perfected are as beautiful as their wines are refined. This is the first book dedicated to the red and white wines that offers the history of each domaine, along with a guide to the great vintages and an address book to the vineyards. Newly commissioned photographs capture the region throughout the seasons, making this handsome volume both a glorious voyage and an important reference for any wine lover.
