From the expert behind the top-rated resource ChampagneGuide.net comes this groundbreaking guide to the modern wines of Champagne--housed in a luxurious box set that includes a pullout tray with the only detailed wine maps of the region, for the first time ever appearing in an English language publication.
Champagne is one of the most iconic, sought-after wines in the world, beloved by serious wine collectors as well as everyday wine drinkers. However, Champagne is also one of the most misunderstood wines out there--obscured by a multibillion-dollar marketing industry that makes it difficult for consumers to honestly judge value and understand what they're drinking. Enter Champagne, a revolutionary new book from trusted authority Peter Liem. Based on years of on-the-ground research and unprecedented access to actual Champagne growers, Champagne is the first book to actually describe producers and wines based on their terroir--enlightening readers by showing them exactly where, how, and by whom these great wines are made. A comprehensive buyer's guide helps wine buyers navigate the sparkling wine aisle, and never-before-published maps of every vineyard in the region make this the definitive resource for any wine lover.
