As consumption of both Champagne and sparkling wine is rising across the world, here is a fully revised, updated and expanded edition of the book that won Absolute Press and Tom Stevenson the World Gourmand Award for 'Best Wine Book', and which was also shortlisted for the Andre Simon Award. It was also the winner of the Salon International du Livre Gourmand 'Best Wine Book' (recognised by the French within 24 hours of coming off the press); the Noble Cuv?e du Champagne Lanson Award and recipient of World Food Media Award's 'Silver Ladle'. It was the first book to include the publication of Merret's historic document that proved Champagne was a British invention. This ensured that it became (and still is) the only wine book ever to warrant a leader in a British national newspaper (The Guardian, 14 October 1998). On first publication, over 150,000 copies were presold in French and German language editions alone. For this edition, Sterling in the USA are already on board to take 6,000 copies of the new edition.

    This is the book from which to find the answers to all your questions - a large, well set out, all-encompassing work on the subject. There are endless options suggested here on Champagne to try, and you will have enormous enjoyment searching for them. Every true wine buff should own a copy -- Clarissa Dickson Wright, The Journal of The Gourmet Club This stylishly-packaged book is everything you'd expect from Britain's leading fizz expert: authoritative, opinionated and comprehensive, with plenty of coverage given to non-French (and even English) wines -- Tim Atkin The Observer An authority acknowledged even by the Champenois The Sunday Times
