About the book:
Originally written by multi-award winning wine writer Tom Stevenson, this luxurious fourth edition has been fully updated and once again significantly extended by Essi Avellan, Master of Wine, one of the world's most exciting and talented young wine writers. A country-by-country guide, from the finest Champagnes of France to the lesser-known sparkling wine producers of China, this extraordinary work takes you to five continents and to all the countries where serious sparkling wine is produced. More than 2,000 producers from around the world are rated on a 100-point global scale with an in-depth analysis of their history, method of production and style of wine. New photography and maps vividly enrich this beautiful edition of Christie's World Encyclopedia of Champagne and Sparkling Wine.
