THE WORLD’S GREATEST WINE ESTATES
Robert Parker’s first ever illustrated book, published in 2005, a guide to 175 of the world’s greatest wine estates, from Australia to United States.
Lavishly illustrated with stunning photography, and featuring useful maps, visitor information, and tasting notes on each estate’s best vintages.
Bordeaux Legends traces the 500-year history of the five world-renowned Bordeaux wines known as First Growths”four crowned in 1855, and Mouton Rothschild joining them more than a century later. Wine educator and journalist Jane Anson presents the fascinating story of what it means to be a first-growth wine, what makes these wines so extraordinary, and what that means to the legions of merchants, dealers, and wine lovers who hold them in such high esteem. For the first time, this book brings the estate’s separate stories together into one sweeping saga, filled with revealing anecdotes and lively historical detail. With a foreword by Academy Awardwinning director and winery owner Francis Ford Coppola and stunning new photographs, this book makes it clear why these five wines are considered among the very best in the world.
Bordeaux Legends has been awarded the special jury mention in the History and Literature category of the prestigious International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) Awards.
