The electronic publication, which was released for the first time last week, contains just over 50 pages of analysis, reviews and recommendations on Chilean wine, as well as drawings by Peter’s sister Helen, an architect by trade.

Introducing the document, Richards, who is widely regarded as the world’s leading commentator on Chilean wine, described his new publication as “a peek behind
 the scenes of Chilean wine” which is “intended for everyone from producers to the global wine trade 
to students and everyday wine lovers.”

Although he admits the report is not exhaustive, it’s certainly extensive and easy to read, with a mix of articles on Chile’s key grapes and regions, as well as punchy reviews of the country’s leading producers.

Richards also ranks his top ten producers, star winemakers, best value wineries, as well as listing “ten to watch”.

Furthermore, having reviewed over 130 wines, he picks out just ten labels which he describes as “sensational” and has awarded his maximum rating of 5 stars.

Richards has released these wines, and his tasting notes, exclusively to db, and you can see his selection over the following pages.

Richards is also offering db readers a 10% discount off the £15 charged to download the first edition of the Chile Wine Brief.
