Read this guide to over 300 French cheeses and you'll never again confuse the brie with the Roquefort. Profiling hundreds of wines from every region, major vineyard, and appellation of France, French Wines is equally useful to the cultured connoisseur as well as the beginner who doesn't know Pouilly Fume from Pouilly Fuisse. Combining beautiful color photographs with an informative text by eminent wine export and author Robert Joseph, this guide offers an abundance of detailed information on each wine. Special features include a glossary of wine terminology; an extensive introductory section with information on viticulture, buying, tasting, storing, serving, and matching foods with wines.
