The Bacchus Wine Notebook
Reviewed by Dean Tudor
 (July 14, 2003)

The Bacchus Wine Notebook (Vehicule Press, 2002, 72 pages, ISBN 1-55065-164-1, $7.95 spiralbound) is by Pierre Veronneau, from his "Le carnet vin." This is a templated wine log (a record of the wines you may have enjoyed – or want to avoid) with tasting sheets (a record of your impressions, whether you liked the wine or not). You can always photocopy additional pages and expand the book on your own.

As it is, this is a perfect little host gift or, at Christmas, a stocking stuffer. At the bottom of each tasting sheet, there is a throwaway nugget, such as the story of Dom Perignon, or a wine quote, or the derivation of the word "gamay"...

Highly recommended for the price. And maybe corporate bulk purchases could be possible at a reduced price...

What I don't like about this book: too short, could easily be a third larger at this pricepoint.
What I do like about this book: spiral bound for ease of writing, a glossary of wine terms at the back, and a shortlist of websites.
Quality-to-Price rating: 89
