I recently toured the Champagne region, having booked hotels and chosen destinations on the internet; I had a superb time and fell in love with the towns, villages and steeply-sloping chalk hills of La Champagne. I bought this book on my return hoping to learn a little more about it - I should have bought it before, as it's an excellent touring guide to the region.

Champagne has been my favourite drink for a number of years and this book has enriched my appreciation no end. It's written for someone who is planning on visiting the region from England (most of the travel directions are based on how to get there from the UK), and suggests various routes through the champagne villages and towns. The best bit about the book though is the informative history of the drink itself; the author talks about how champagne came to be invented (dispelling a few myths along the way!) and goes into some detail on the production of the drink, the blend of grapes used and so on.

Later, when he guides you through the individual champagne villages, he gives notes on a large selection of champagne producers so that you can get an idea of the best places to visit. This reader's recommendation? If you've only got time to visit one, go for the Castellane house in Epernay - the tour is much more personalised than some of the better-known houses, and their champagne is excellent!

Illustrated in full colour and with an excellent layout throughout the book, this is a thoroughly recommended read, and at an excellent price from Amazon too. Thanks Mr. Boucheron, I'll raise a glass to you next time I'm in La Champagne!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Essential Champagne Guide 8 Jan 2009
Format:Paperback
This excellent book is the perfect guide to help plan your visit to the Champagne region and to navigate your way to some of the places only the locals usually know about. We live in Champagne and recommend this to all the guests staying in our "Champagne Gites". Make sure to buy it well before you travel as even the journey from Calais to Reims will be more interesting!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have... 6 May 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
...for anyone visiting Champagne and wants to get the best out of their stay - if you are planning to visit the champagne houses that is.

This is what I and a few friends are planning this summer. After reading the previous reviews I decided to purchase this guide, and I am glad I did.

It gives wonderful advice on where the champagne houses are located, both the big well known ones and the lesser known ones. I have been to Champagne before and I thoroughly reccommend you visit the smaller ones as I thought their champagne was better. This time though armed with this book I hope I make more of the time I will be there.

By AEB
Format:Paperback
I have visited Champagne a few times,and bought this as I am planning to go again. I wish I had brought it years ago! The suggestions of the smaller villages and houses to visit are very helpful, and I look forward to exploring more of Champagne on my next trip.

4.0 out of 5 stars Informative, but not easy to digest 19 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback
We found this book very helpful during our week in Champagne in June 2011. The only complaint we have is its organization. Things were't laid out in a way that's conducive to use "on the run." We'd have to sit and really focus on next day's itinerary and take our own notes. It would also benefit from the inclusion of more practical information, like URLs and opening hours.
