9780151007042: Michael Broadbent's Vintage Wine

The half-century of Michael Broadbent's wine trade experience has seen unprecedented change throughout the wine world. Few people have done more to influence that change and none can claim a better-informed perspective on it. Published to coincide with Michael Broadbent's 75th birthday and a celebration of 50 years in the wine trade, VINTAGE WINE will concentrate on the wines which are now in universal, high-level demand, those that are being collected, consumed and traded by vast and increasing numbers in all corners of the globe. More selective than his earlier works, this book features personal reflection as well as specific opinion. Years of cellars visited and pillaged for sale at Christie's, involving the checking and packing of dust and grime laden bottles in distinctly dank and chilly conditions, plus the jet-set auctions around the world, the legendary tastings and the society events have yielded an unrivalled store of vinous anecdote and amusement as well as an unsurpassed winetasting record.

Review:

The world's most experienced taster ( WINE Spectator)

Michael Broadbent has 'traded in and tasted a greater number of fine and rare wines than anyone else in the world ( #NAME?)

Michael is one of my favourite tasting partners. I get all the benefit of his massive wine experience - and all the pleasure of his boyish enthusiasm for life. - Oz Clarke ( The fine art of writing intelligent tasting notes has no greater master than the incomparable Michael Broadbent. - Robert Parker)

Broadbent is the doyen of wine tasters and this covers thousands and thousands of bottles, some 100 years old ( The GUARDIAN)
