Book reviews 2015 – a guide


Tam (pictured enjoying a measure of German Spätburgunder whilst picking sloe berries in hedgerows) has excelled herself in her incisive and entertaining reviews of 20 wine books published in 2015 – so much so that I’m not convinced she actually took any time off over Christmas. 

Below are the links to all her articles, showing which books are reviewed in each one, the most recently published article at the top. We've also included at the end of the list links to two other book reviews by Jancis (free) and Alder published in November.
