With this fourth edition of the classic that launched his career, Parker strives to maintain his unprecedented independence, objectivity, clarity, and enthusiasm in reporting on the vintages of Bordeaux. Parker has not only added tastings for the vintages in the intervening years since the last edition, but he has also retasted and reevaluated a majority of the earlier vintages. His accessible and direct style welcomes both the seasoned wine collector and the eager beginner to the pleasures of fine wine and France's most illustrious chateau. Organized by appellation, Bordeaux moves alphabetically from one producer to the next, providing essential information and an overview of the property and its owners. Parker then lists each vintage, and includes numerical ratings and detailed tasting notes for most of that chateau's wines. At the end of each tasting note, Parker estimates the qanticipated maturityqathe range of time when the wine should peak in flavor and balanceaand each entry concludes with a summary of the chateau's earlier vintages. Hailed by The New York Times as athe critic who matters most, a Robert Parker's Bordeaux is the most complete consumer's guide to the wines of Bordeaux ever written.A Consumera#39;s Guide to the Worlda#39;s Finest Wines Robert M.
