ISBN: 978-1-934259-20-7. 2009
What Price Bordeaux? reveals the truth behind the mystique of Bordeaux wine. Some of the questions answered in this book include:
- Why can’t they stop wine fraud in Bordeaux?
- Is Bordeaux changing grape varieties and sytle in response to international pressure?
- Is the 1000% price-increase of the first growths in the past 10 years the boom before the bust?
This book provides new insights into the mysteries of the en primeur system, the rising influence of oenologues and critics, and the rise and fall of individual chateaux. What Price Bordeaux? pulls together information from many sources, including previously unavailable data for the internal market in Bordeaux, to present a unique overview of the forces making Bordeaux wine what it is today.
