It explores the process of making champagne and how the subtle blend of grapes produces a notable house style;, the history of champagne, from the earliest makers to the establishment of the regulatory body, and the recent award of World Heritage status by UNESCO. The core of this beautiful volume focuses on individual entries on all the major Champagne houses, lesser estates, co-operatives, growers, and variations of sparkling wine. Each entry provides background on the House and explores the notable traits of its products, together with tasting notes and recommendations. Finally, Champagne examines the growing interest in sparkling wines and the social and cultural impact of this drink of kings.
