The finest wines of Champagne

£4.99

Product description


Winner of the International Wine Book of the Year award at the prestigious Louise Roederer Wine Writers Awards 2010.
As arguably the most glamorous wine in the world, Champagne s popularity has soared over the past decade. A mainstay of weddings, victory parties and New Years Eve festivities, Champagne is often a witness to our most celebratory moments. It is, however, also a wine boasting greater diversity than we might think.
Whilst most people are familiar with fewer than a dozen brands of Champagne, there are in fact over 21,000 producers, many of whom market their own vintages. Whilst not as widely available as brands such as Moë t, Lanson or Cristal, these producers provide some of the finest Champagnes sought after by connoisseurs.
This magnificent guide, published in conjunction with Fine Wine magazine, looks at the history of Champagne, contains tips and ideas on how best to appreciate it and has a comprehensive glossary of the top producers.
The Finest Wines of Champagne is a must-have for all wine connoisseurs and is an invaluable guide for people looking to explore the world of Champagne. This book is part of Aurum s prestigious Finest Wines series whose books on Wines of Tuscany, Bordeaux and Rioja have received acclaim at the André Simon Awards and the Gourmand Wine Book Awards.
