Jancis Robinson has out-done herself here. This book is like a plot outline of a play... it gives you just enough to let you know what to expect. It was never intended to be the last word in wine books, but it beats most of the ones I have read on giving the basics of whatever the topic is. It is a great book for giving "thumbnail" introductions to grapes, regions, wine rules, etc. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you.
A very concise and interesting start for wine beginners. This woman has been successfully writing wine books for a long time and is well respected and honored. She is a British Icon.
I give this book 5 stars. Nevertheless I work in wine industry for years, I couold find a plethora of valuable information in this little book. Absolute must-read for those who want to discover a beautiful universe of wine! Thank you Jancis!
My wife loves it
