Flap copy

Michael Broadbent almost certainly knows more about fine wine than anyone else in the world. In 2002 he celebrated the completion of half a century in the wine trade and the publication of "Vintage Wine," his first major book for more than a decade and his most important work to date. Building on his earlier works but concentrating on the world's great classic wine regions, it was both the ultimate fine wine reference book and a remarkable record of a lifelong passion.
"Pocket Vintage Wine" is an updated pocket version of this classic and award-winning book and presents Michael Broadbent's tasting notes in a format you can carry with you, so that whether travelling, buying at auction or dining out you can have his unrivalled expertise at your fingertips. Here is the cream of Michael's notes from "Vintage Wine," along with hundreds of new notes on the best wines Michael has tasted since "Vintage Wine" was published in 2002.
