Synopses & Reviews
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 estates 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.
Praise for Bordeaux Legends:
The book is full of the romance of these iconic chateaus, but it also offers interesting details about the business of running their global empires. Ultimately, Ansons book is a look at the complexities of producing the wines that many consider to be among the worlds best.” —The San Jose Mercury News online
