1001 Wines You Must Taste Before You Die - Neil Beckett

As with any list that claims to be comprehensive, Neil Beckett’s compendium of 1001 Wines You Must Taste Before You Die (Universe, $36.95) is bound to create controversy and spark debate.  Is Champagne better than sherry?  Does one great vintage trump centuries of vinicultural excellence?  This book aims to create exactly these conversations.  The editors attempted to cobble together a list composed not strictly of the best wines but of the most complete range of tastes and styles.  Though most of the choices are based on vintage, this book offers insight into the global wine industry in all its facets—from rare wines, only found at auction, to familiar mass-produced grocery-store brands
