I tried very hard not to be annoyed by Frederick Davidson's narration. I mean, a stereotypical British accent with the affectation of the upper class should be perfect for a book on wine right? Not to this listener. Early on Matt Kramer writes about this book not being for "snobs" (my interpretation) and yet with every syllable uttered it screamed snobbery. His pronunciation of French wines and foods may be impeccable, but I could scarcely understand any of it. Such a shame too since this book is full of interesting and useful information. In fact I often came off appearing snobbish when making comments about wine which I gleaned from the book. This one is better read than listened to.
