What makes the Hachette Wine Guide a must buy?
It is INDEPENDENT: the producers who present their wines at the tasting sessions do it freely and without remuneration of any kind.
It is OBJECTIVE: the wines are tasted by experts who ignore names of producers or vintages.
It is EXHAUSTIVE: the tasted wines come from all French appellations including vins de pays.
The Hachette Wine Guide application aims to help you choose your wine wherever you are: in a restaurant, in a shop, at home, with friends or at the producers’.

Ratings and Reviews
Not the same as print guide
Very disappointing, because I expected this to be the same as the print guide, but more convenient for searching. That is not the case at all. The search function is very poor. As for how it compares to the print guide, the App does not show the past vintages of the same wine for select wines as far as being ready to drink or needing more time in the cellar (which in the print guide is represented by black or red font for each previously cited vintage of that wine).
TEXT IS IN FRENCH!
I can't rate this on its utility or authoritativeness because I read very little French. The blurb for this app in the App Store should, quite obviously, identify this as a French-language app. It doesn't. Now, I'm in the process of studying French already anyway, so I'm not going to rattle Apple's cage trying to get a refund, but this won't be true of most unsuspecting non-Francophone buyers (for $19!), so the App Store blurb needs a little work!
App Crashes when searching
Searching the app causes the app to crash which makes the whole guide pointless. Money down the drain!
