BBR to publish ‘Inside Bordeaux’

UK fine wine merchant Berry Bros & Rudd has announced it is to publish a “definitive” guide to Bordeaux as a companion piece to Jasper Morris MW’s ‘Inside Burgundy’.

Entitled ‘Inside Bordeaux’, the merchant has commissioned Bordeaux-based wine writer Jane Anson to write the book which will profile more than 600 châteaux across 65 appellations, providing an insight into everything that goes into making some of the world’s most sought-after fine wines.

The book will also delve into the various soils and microclimates of each region drawing on the latest research.

Anson comments: “With this book, I want to move away from the usual château/classification/appellation approach, and explore instead Bordeaux as it stands today, giving a fresh exploration of what is changing in a region that continues to fascinate wine-lovers the world over.

“The book will offer an insight into how the most established names are evolving and pushing quality ever further, as well as an introduction to up and coming estates and the growth of trends such as biodynamic viticulture and terroir-led winemaking.

I’m particularly excited about working with the region’s most renowned terroir experts to create new maps to showcase a subject that is just not talked about often enough when it comes to Bordeaux, and to help readers make clever buying decisions by matching soils and production style to the type of vintage, showing how to find value outside of the usual names.”

Anson’s book is a companion piece of sorts to Morris’s 2010 book ‘Inside Burgundy’, a seminal work on the producers, wines and terroirs of the famous eastern French region. Morris is currently working on a second edition for BBR Press.

Anson’s Bordeaux book is due for publication in autumn 2019.
