Le Grand Guide des Vins de France 2008
Michel Bettane & Thierry Dessauve

This is a wine guide over France. Region by region the authors present with a short profile, a rating and a few tasting notes their preferred wine producers. Without hesitation one of the most interesting and useful wine guides in France, more interesting to read than e.g. Guide Hachette. It used to be called the “Bettane & Dessauve” guide when it was published by the Revue des Vins de France where the two authors used to work. This edition is rebranded, totally overhauled and expanded. (It also has an accompanying web site that is unfortunately not very useful or user friendly.) Clearly worth in for he who is looking for interesting producers across the French wine regions (provided you read French). Its only drawback is that it has now grown to become quite bulky and difficult to carry in the suit case…
