Yes, you can buy world-class wine on a budget. With Parker's Wine Bargains, America's most infl uential wine critic offers a guide to the world's best wines priced at $25 or less. Robert M. Parker, Jr., earned his international reputation and unprecedented influence as a dedicated consumer advocate -- if a wine isn't worth the money, he says so, regardless of the wine's pedigree. In Parker's Wine Bargains, for the first time he and his Wine Advocate team offer budget-minded wine buyers a handy guide to low-priced wines for both everyday drinking and special occasions. Organized by country, the book lists more than 1,500 quality wine producers, as well as abbreviated tasting notes for more than 3,000 of the best value wines. Chapters include an overview of each country's wine-producing regions, highlight up-and-coming or underappreciated regions, and detail when wines can be consumed. Also featuring a vintage guide and lists such as "the best of the best," Parker's Wine Bargains is an accessible guide from the expert the New York Times deems "the critic who matters most."

Featuring a fresh layout, revised maps, and more detail than ever before, the eagerly anticipated seventh edition of Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide offers collectors and amateurs alike the ultimate resource to the world's best wines. In every way, this edition bears out Parker's stated goal: "To make you a more formidable, more confident wine buyer by providing you with sufficient insider's information to permit the wisest possible choice when you make a wine-buying decision." Understanding that buyers on every level appreciate a good deal, Parker separates overvalued bottles from undervalued, with wine prices instantly shifting according to his evaluations. Indifferent to the wine's pedigree, Parker's eminent 100-point rating system allows for independent, consumer-oriented, inside information. The latest edition of Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide includes expanded information on Spain, Portugal, Germany, Australia, Argentina, and Chile, as well as new sections on Israel and Central Europe. As in his previous editions, Parker provides the reassurance of a simple number rating, predictions for future buying potential, and practical overviews of regions and grapes. Altogether, an indispensable resource from the man the Los Angeles Times calls "the most powerful critic of any kind."
Bordeaux : the definitive guide for the wines produced since 1961 by Robert M Parker( Book )

Burgundy : a comprehensive guide to the producers, appellations, and wines by Robert M Parker( Book )
5 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 140 libraries worldwide
Burgundy is a fitting monument to the region that is capable of producing, in Parker's words, "the world's most majestic, glorious, and hedonistic red and white wine." With the publication of his classic volumes, Bordeaux and The Wines of the RhOne Valley and Provence, together with the several editions of his Wine Buyer's Guide, Robert M. Parker, Jr., has emerged as America's most influential and articulate authority on wine. Whether he writes of the fabled French chAteaux or of lesser-known growers and producers from around the world, his books have proved invaluable reading for connoisseurs and neophytes alike, for they contain not only hard-headed, frank analysis but an undisguised and positively contagious enthusiasm for his subject. In this book, his most ambitious and comprehensive to date, Parker offers an extraordinary guide to the growers, appellations, and wines of Burgundy, the viticultural region in eastern France that produces the most exotic, sought-after, expensive, and frequently least understood wines in the world. Like its predecessors, Bordeaux and The Wines of the RhOne Valley and Provence, Parker's Burgundy has all the makings of a classic. It is a beautifully produced book, and it boasts more than thirty specially made color maps, with those depicting the individual appellations drawn in such exquisite detail that each and every vineyard is visible. Burgundy is a fitting monument to the region that is capable of producing, in Parker"s words, "the world's most majestic, glorious, and hedonistic red and white wine."
Bordeaux : a comprehensive guide to the wines produced from 1961-1990 by Robert M Parker( Book )
5 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 133 libraries worldwide
Bordeaux : a consumer's guide to the world's finest wines by Robert M Parker( Book )
4 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 101 libraries worldwide
With this fourth edition of the classic that launched his career, Parker strives to maintain his unprecedented independence, objectivity, clarity, and enthusiasm in reporting on the vintages of Bordeaux. Parker has not only added tastings for the vintages in the intervening years since the last edition, but he has also retasted and reevaluated a majority of the earlier vintages. His accessible and direct style welcomes both the seasoned wine collector and the eager beginner to the pleasures of fine wine and France's most illustrious chateau. Organized by appellation, Bordeaux moves alphabetically from one producer to the next, providing essential information and an overview of the property and its owners. Parker then lists each vintage, and includes numerical ratings and detailed tasting notes for most of that chateau's wines. At the end of each tasting note, Parker estimates the "anticipated maturity"'the range of time when the wine should peak in flavor and balance'and each entry concludes with a summary of the chateau's earlier vintages. Hailed by The New York Times as "the critic who matters most," Robert Parker's Bordeaux is the most complete consumer's guide to the wines of Bordeaux ever written
Bordeaux : a comprehensive guide to the wines produced from 1961-1997 by Robert M Parker( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 88 libraries worldwide
"Who is making Bordeaux's best and worst wines? What has a specific chateau's track record been over the last thirty or forty years? What chateaux are overrated and overpriced? Which are underrated or underpriced? Always with an eye toward the consumer. Parker distinguishes true value from perceived value." "While the bulk of the book is given over to these ratings, the opening and closing chapters of the book provide readers with a true sense of the changes in the region and its vintages."--Jacket
