Michel Bettane and Thierry Dessauve, the French experts on French wine, have co-edited the "Revue du Vin de France" for almost 20 years. Well known all over the world by wine professionals and consumers alike, Bettane and Desseauve now bring their expertise to the English-speaking market in their encyclopedic book "The Definitive Guide to French Wine". This comprehensive guide is organized by region, including not only such celebrated areas as Burgundy and Champagne, but also lesser-known wine-making provinces like Languedoc and Jura. Within each chapter, a complete picture of the region is presented through maps, entries for individual wineries, detailed information about their wines (including ratings), and 'best of' lists. Written in clear, user-friendly language, the guide is accessible even to those who are wine novices. Whether you're looking to stock your cellar, discover today's prize-winning, must-have wines, learn about a particular region, or expand your wine-tasting horizons, "The Definitive Guide to French Wine" is the oenophile's ideal companion.
