The Champagne Guide Edition VII is the ultimate guide to everything you need to know about how champagne is grown and made, behind-the-scenes insights into its top producers and the best buys at every price point, all for the price of a bottle of champagne!

This is a fully-updated colour edition of the internationally acclaimed self-published Champagne Guide, 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 almost 150 champagne producers – from the smallest growers to the largest houses. More than 1300 wines have been reviewed based on current tastings, together with insights from their producers, accompanied by full-colour bottle shots.

The Champagne Guide Edition VII features a Hall of Honour ranking 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, blanc de noirs and rosé champagnes. It’s the world’s most comprehensive and up-to-date guide to champagne, featuring the latest, freshest releases, all tasted recently.

In the volatility of the current global climate, the increasing diversity of champagne and the scarcity of the most sought-after cuvées across a growing number of markets make ready access to up-to-the-minute reviews, pre-release recommendations and pertinent commentary more vital than ever.
