Oh, how I love books that purport to be the "most" something, "best" something, etc., and fall flat on their face as an obvious pretentious ripoff. Most people thinking of buying this outrageously overpriced ripoff are likely seeking ideas to help them build their own cellar to a high standard. Most assuredly, they can look elsewhere, for almost none of these are appropriate for that purpose.
Almost all of these are hardly "beautiful" cellars, for one thing. Famous, yes. Historic, yes. Rustic, primitive, most certainly.
For most of these are historic underground cavern-type cellars of famous chateaux, hotels, restaurants, etc, many going back hundreds of years. Almost all are simply caves carved out of the basement stone underneath, such as limestone. Almost all the photos simply show old wines laying on their sides on stone shelves in these caves, gathering dust over the decades. Anyone seriously into wine has seen this type of old chateau cellar many times before, and a book full of them is of little value for the extremely high price.
The two 5-star endlessly-gushing reviews here are to me highly suspect. For one thing, they were both written within two weeks of each other, some two years ago. And, oh, my, one reviewer calls these 300 "stunning" photos, no less. No, they're not "stunning", they're just photos of old wine cellars. Not a single one "stunned" me, I assure you, and I do in fact get occasionally stunned by outstanding photography.
The other 5-star cheerleader chirps valuable insights such as "one sees that for some wine collectors and connoisseurs, wine can be like fine art." Gosh, that's deep. And: "seen in some photographs is the dust accumulated on the old bottles." OMG, I must rush out and plop down $60 for such revealing imagery!! Good Lord, anybody who's been halfway into fine wine for more than 10 minutes has seen endless pictures of old wine bottles sitting in old wine cellars gathering dust, a book full of such pictures will interest someone for maybe one leaf-through, and that's about it.
Caveat emptor, as they say. Make sure you can send this one back if you decide to waste your time on it anyway.
