Présentation de l'éditeur
France boasts a remarkable quantity of high-quality grape varied soils that yield exceptional wines of worldwide reputation. Yet France's wine-growing tradition, unchallenged for centuries, has begun to change. Over the past twenty years,
French wines have undergone a veritable revolution : the grands vins from traditional regions now climb to prohibitive prices - that is, if they are not "sold out" before even reaching the retail trade. Conversely, regions once considered "minor" are experiencing a winegrowing renaissance that has lead to the emergence of excellent wines with distinctive personality but available at more reasonable prices.

Quatrième de couverture
 France boasts a remarkable quantity of high-quality grape varieties and varied soils that yield exceptional wines of worldwide reputation. Yet France's wine-growing tradition, unchallenged for centuries, has begun to change. Over the past twenty years,
French wines have undergone a veritable revolution: the grands vins from traditional regions now climb to prohibitive prices-that is, if they are not "sold out" before even reaching the retail trade. Conversely, regions once considered "minor" are experiencing a wine-growing renaissance that has lead to the emergence of excellent wines with distinctive personality but available at more reasonable prices.

In this book, James Turnbull has selected 220 of the finest wines in France on the basis of each wine's regularity, character, local identity, and unique "personality" imbued by the vintner. Three major types of wines make up the selection:
- Prestigious wines: principally from Bordeaux, Burgundy, or Champagne. The author, though not passing up Château d'Yquem, Pétrus, or Romanée Conti, deliberately sets aside the often dulled renown of other supposed "stars";
- Regional discoveries: wines from smaller-sized estates, primarily in Alsace, Champagne, the Southwest, the Jura, Provence, and the Rhône and Loire Valleys, where the methods of cultivation and the vintner's personal input produce wonders;
- Rebel wines: marvelous examples of the genius of vintners who choose to ignore the production criteria of the traditional "AOC" classification methods, preferring the inventiveness of original creations to the monotony of a minor vintage.

For each of the 220 wines featured in this book, you will find:
- The history of each estate and of its family-proprietors;
- Local climatic and geological characteristics;
- The wine-growing and wine-making techniques used;
- A rating of the wine's aromatic and gustative qualities;
- Capacity for in-the-bottle improvement;
- Suggestions for meals or dishes to acnetpany the wine;
- A full-page, color photograph of the bottle;
- A complete technical chart of the wine chosen including a selection of the best vintages, a price guide, and complete contact information for the vineyard. ...
