A fully-updated edition of the internationally acclaimed The Champagne Guide, winner of the 2011 Louis Roederer International Champagne Writer of the Year Award. The book contains fully independent assessments, with profiles and ratings, of almost 100 champagne producers - from the smallest growers to the largest houses. The wines have all been reviewed based on current tastings and the notes are accompanied by full colour images. The 2014-2015 edition features fully updated and frank commentary on all the current issues facing champagne: global warming, parallel imports, excessive yields, and how to avoid corked, stale and lightstruck champagnes. The 'Champagne Hall of Honour' ranks the best producers in champagne this year and the best champagnes of the year in varying price categories. The Champagne Guide tells you everything you need to know about how champagne is grown and made and how to buy, open, serve and store champagne.
