The Treasures of Champagne, Hardback Book

The Treasures of Champagne Hardback


For connoisseur and newcomer alike, The Treasures of Champagne celebrates this remarkable liquid by exploring how champagne has become so deeply embedded in the world's consciousness.

Divided into four parts, the first section looks at the process of making champagne and how the subtle blend of grapes produces a notable house style, as well as the vintage years and the special cuvees.

This is followed by the history of champagne from the earliest makers to the present day and the global events which affected it.

The third section provides individual entries on all the major champagne marques and some of the lesser known ones to.

Each entry contains a brief history and explores the most notable traits of the houses' products and includes tasting notes recommending brands to try.

The final section examines the social and cultural impact of champagne, how it has become a part of certain traditions, links to entertainment in fact and fiction.

The celebration of bubbly proves, once and for all, that the world would be a poorer place without champagne.

A Votre Sante!
