The Champagne Guide 2018-2019

An updated edition of the internationally acclaimed The Champagne Guide, by the winner of the 2011 Louis Roederer International Champagne Writer of the Year Award for the 2011-2012 edition. The book contains fully independent assessments, with profiles and ratings, of over 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 bottle images. The 2018-2019 edition features fully updated information on the distinction between houses and producers 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 under $60, under $100, under $200, at any price, and the best blanc de blancs, rose and low-dosage champagnes. 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, all for less than the price of even a cheap bottle of champagne!
