A revolution is underway in Bordeaux. The top chateaux have been obtaining unprecedented prices for their wines, while smaller chateaux are going bankrupt. Enormous changes in the production and style of wine have been accomplished by advances in viticulture and vinification coupled with climatic changes. The battle between modernists and traditionalists plays out through the garage wines, felt by some to be the newest wave, and by others to be a caricature of Bordeaux. Pulling together information from a variety of sources including the market in Bordeaux, changing patterns of ownership, and new possibilities in viticulture and vinification, bestselling science and wine author Benjamin Lewin presents a unique overview of the forces making Bordeaux wine what it is today.

"'What Price Bordeaux ranges far wider and deeper than the title suggests, covering most of the major elements in Bordeaux's history with unique thoroughness' Nicholas Faith - The World of Fine Wine". 'An excellent new book, What Price Bordeaux, reminds me to turn my attention to red bordeaux vintages and how ready those in your cellar may be to drink. This dense volume, thick with footnotes and liberally illustrated with graphs and charts, looks not unlike a scientific dissertation but the text is eminently lucid and readable.' Jancis Robison - Financial Times
