Format: Hardcover
This is a fantastic book with some great maps and lots of illustrations and photos. It covers everything (even things I did not know I did not want to know) about the soil and climate of each region in France, and the techniques, methods and economy of making wine. The book description says that the Institut National des Appellations and the National Geographic Institute collaborated to make the maps and I can believe it, they are masterpieces of detail. The book is worth it just for the maps. I spend hours looking at them, and always find something new and interesting. It is great to get a peek inside some of the world's most famous vineyards. It is also one of the few wine books that has style and looks good on the coffee table. It is a shame to hide it on a shelf with other books, and the more you leave it around the more you consult it.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By The King on 3 Mar 2011
Format: Hardcover
This is my favourite wine book. Having been to many wonderful French vineyards,
I like to sit on my lounge, with my a glass of my latest French wine and sip away
reading about the region, the terroir, looking at the fabulous maps and pictures
and enjoying the insightful annecdotes that abound the book. I feel transported,
educated, and chilled.
One of my favourite annecdotes is based on, what are the four German (Yes) families
that emigrated to France and started Champagne houses? I love asking French people
this question. And the answer, buy the book, however they are big brands!
The book also helped me understand what wine makers are meaning when they say that
a wine is a 'Bordeau style' wine. The implications are just as relevant to Rhone
and other regions.
Buy it, laze with it, interigate it and then enjoy wines just that much more!

Outstanding Wine book 28 Dec 2001
By K. MacDonald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The French make it best, and it is no surprise to see such an outstanding work from them. The maps and descriptions of vineyards and their wines will make learning and appreciation of wines a snap for everyone.
The best book of its kind I have seen in years.
Good book if you like wine 27 Aug 2013
By David S. Robbin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a good resource book on French (only) wine. The descriptions of geography and grapes are helpful in navigating the bewildering regions, grapes and wines produced in France. I feel more comfortable in ordering wines from the lengthy lists
in some restaurants
