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.

“The definitive and encyclopedic work of two of the giants of wine journalism in France.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
"If you have any interest in French wines-and you should-then there is no better single guide to that celebrated region than the encyclopedic Guide to the Wines of France
. . . Kudos, too, to the publishers, who have delivered a book that is beautiful, easy to use, and feels like you're getting far more than your money's worth."
