Interesting history of Jefferson and French wines in the beginning, but the history of the fraud perpetrated on the billionaires was too drawn out and detailed. A discerning reader will come to the correct conclusion earlier in the book than the point when the author exposes it. What the author thinks of suspense becomes boring details.
tales off a ~2/3 of the way into the book. starts out with a wonderful, fascinating, bright narrative. maintains it for a while then gets a bit off track...
It was a fascinating story and if you appreciate wines you will find it incredible what people will do for money and prestige.
Excellent read for all wine aficianato wanna a be's
