MICHAEL BROADBENT

"Michael Broadbent, wine critic, writer, auctioneer and Master of Wine, brought a brand new approach to wine with his 1968 book, Wine Tasting. At a time when wine was either ‘jolly good’ or ‘decent stuff’, Michael gave us reds ‘full of fruit and tannin, yet clothed in a ripe-grape softness’, or ‘…fragrant with shades of mint, ginger, eucalyptus’, He gave us the tools to tackle wine tasting through a structured analysis of appearance, aroma and flavour still very much embraced today (and explained on the pages of Wine Tasting), but also enriched the experience by turning the tasting note into an art form – as beautifully portrayed in the Great Vintage Wine Book (1991) bringing Bordeaux, Burgundies, Ports, Champagnes and many other classics back to life from as far back as the 18th century."
