A good read with useful anecdotal information,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Finest Wines Of Champagne (Paperback)
An insightful book into the area of Champagne-Ardenne and the history.
Covers the grape varieties. Highlights the key growing areas.
A useful explanation of the blending and how Champagne is produced. Although this is covered in more depth in other books.
Reads more than like a novel than a "dry" Reference book - which makes it better!
Has interesting anecdotes about the area, the history and the producers.
Then follows Area/ Producer sections which the author views as making great Champagne.
Nice to find a book where the author does more than recap the "Sales Blurb" that you get from the large houses.
Recommended! And useful if you intend to visit the area.
