    Chateau d'Yquem is my favourite wine. Ever. I decided I need to branch out a bit and learn more about the other, equally tasty Bordeaux wines out there - but I'm not sure what a good reference would be. I've perused the food and wine section at Barnes and Noble to no avail - suggestions?

    Well Brie,

    You have good taste $$$$

    Try Hugh Johnsons pocket wine book.

    Robert Parkers Wine Advocate is a great publication.
    The book "Bordeaux"by Parker is great.

    Andre Domine book "Wine" is simply the best.

    Would love to hear some TNs on d'Yquem from you.

    My favorite wine book is "The Essential Wine Book" by Oz Clarke. It may be short on specifics about individual wines or wineries but does a really good job of giving a brief overview of most of the world's wine making regions, with some examples of wines that really showcase what each region is all about.
