      "Missing info"

      It starts off promising, but there is not nearly enough information on varietals. Also, you'd think they would choose a narrator with at least very basic french knowledge, his pronunciations are not just incorrect, they're EMBARRASSING...and if someone is learning these words for the first time, they will embarrass themselves by learning from this guy.

      "Most of the book is missing in the audio version"
      You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

      The original book is great, but there are only 3 chapters available in the audio version.

      "Enjoy it with a glass of wine"

      I found this book helpful and a very pleasant listen as well. Nice amount of info without coming across as snobby.
