Cooking & Entertaining / Wines Ales & Spirits. / Superplonk by Gluck, Malcolm Gluck, Malcolm           Amazon.co.uk Review: Malcolm Glucks latest report on the wine shelves of the nations supermarket chains is the summer edition, produced as a result of demand from his readership due to the incursion of many new wines into the supermarkets during the early and middle parts of the year. It is essentially a supplement to the main winter edition. Even so, it indicates Glucks phenomenal energy. Whatever else he may be, he is primarily a machine for turning wine into tasting notes. And what notes--characteristically energetic and eccentric, fizzing exuberantly like champagne bubbles. Under the electron microscope of his palate, familiar wine tastes are magnified into startlingly vivid forms, a number (it must be said) being impressionistic to the point of surrealism. A great big soppy broth of a wine. A decent, but delayed, finish of warm coal. Like tasting a dead librarian. Well, we get the picture, sort of. But the chief value of the book lies in Glucks ingenious (but obvious, really) system of points. He grades from 1 to 20, a 1 being a wine the producer of which should be slung in prison, a 20 a toweringly brilliant world-class wine of self-evident style and individuality. There are no 1s or 20s here: a few lucky 17s or 18s and the odd mean-spirited 10 or shameful 8. The ratings reflect not only quality but also value for money. As always, Superplonk is an invaluable guide for the supermarket wine shopper. --Robin Davidson  --This text refers to the Paperback edition. : : Synopsis: The 1998 edition of Malcolm Glucks supermarket wine guide.
