French Wine


Moët & Chandon, Mercier, Dom Pérignon, Veuve Clicquot, Krug, Ruinart, Hennessy, Château Cheval Blanc, Château d’Yquem…world-renowned names synonymous with prestige, with a unique heritage of savoir-faire passed on from generation to generation, illustrating the incredible wealth of France’s vineyards and wines.

An exceptional new book retraces the history, traditions and savoir-faire of these houses, many of them founded centuries ago.  Illustrated with stunning photos by Francis Hammond, the book offers an intimate look at these exceptional locales.

And since this is very much the realm of art de vivre, the text includes tasting notes on the wines by the cellar masters and recipes from star chefs such as Yannick Alléno and Pascal Tingaud. This voyage of discovery is exquisitely recounted by writer and world traveler Alain Stella. A perfect idea for a gift— or to treat yourself!
