This lavishly produced book celebrates the best of the world-renowned wines of Bordeaux. Each of the 87 wines classified in 1855 as Grands Crus Classes is described in detail and placed in the context of the beautiful vineyards and chateaux where they are produced. In addition, every wine is carefully paired with an original recipe by a superstar chef such as Alice Waters, Charlie Trotter, Thomas Keller, Paul Bocuse, or Nobu Matsuhisa. The book also offers an inside look at the spirit and history of each chateau, with more than 400 photographs that capture these architectural treasures and the land scapes in which they reside. An appendix offers practical details about the chateaux, including how to visit, making Grands Crus Classes a treat for wine lovers, foodies, and Francophiles alike.
