Bettane and Desseauve's Guide to the Wines of France


Bettane and Desseauve's Guide to the Wines of France Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Praise for Bettane and Desseauve's Guide to the Wines of France:

“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."

 -The Austin Chronicle 

“Destined to be on the shelf of every wine lover.”

—France Magazine
