OVERVIEW
Celebrate the treasure that is champagne with this sparkling tribute to the bubbly.

This gorgeous boxed set—complete with removable memorabilia—looks at how the drink has become so embedded in the world’s consciousness. Hundreds of beautiful photographs bring to life the Champagne Houses and their legendary founders, as well as the creation of each bottle, the vines, and the subterranean cellars where the wine matures. The expertly written text explores how champagne is made; notable house styles and vintages; famous makers from the earliest days; the establishment of the regulatory body, the Comité Champagne; various estates, both major and less well known; the social and cultural traditions associated with champagne; and tasting notes with recommendations.

The book features 20 items of memorabilia, including vintage maps, advertising art, and correspondence, all removable so you can study them in detail.
