Michel Bettane and Thierry Desseauve are French
wine experts known all over the world by wine professionals and
consumers alike. Now they bring their expertise to the
English-speaking market in their encyclopedic Guide to the
Wines of France.
This comprehensive buying guide is organized by region, including
not only such celebrated areas as Burgundy and Bordeaux, but also
lesser-known wine-making provinces such as Languedoc and Jura.
Within each chapter, a complete picture of the region is presented
through entries for individual wineries and detailed information
about their wines; each wine is rated using the familiar 100-point
scale. Written in clear, user-friendly language, the guide is
accessible even to wine novices. Whether you''re looking to stock
your cellar or to expand your wine-tasting horizons, Bettane
and Desseauve''s Guide to the Wines of France is the
oenophile''s essential companion.

and encyclopedic work of two of the giants of wine journalism in
France." -Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
