From the Publisher
Continuing his comprehensive survey begun in The Wines of Bordeaux and Western France, John J. Baxevanis here focuses his attention on the viticulture regions that include some of the most illustrious names in the annals of wine: Champagne, Burgundy, and Beaujolais. Baxevanis covers land use patterns, grape varieties and their characteristics, the history and distinctive qualities of the vintages, wine classification, and a region-by-region examination of wine availability, cultivation, maturation, composition, landscape, and ambiance.
