From Peter Liem, the lauded expert behind the top-rated online resource, comes this groundbreaking guide to the modern wines of Champagne–a region that in recent years has undergone one of the most dramatic transformations in the wine-growing world. This luxurious box set includes a pullout tray with a complete set of seven vintage vineyard maps by Louis Larmat, a rare and indispensable resource that beautifully documents the region’s terroirs. With extensive grower and vintner profiles, as well as a fascinating look at Champagne’s history and lore, Champagne explores this legendary wine as never before.

Champagne is one of the most iconic, sought-after wines in the world, beloved by serious wine collectors as well as everyday wine drinkers. However, Champagne is also one of the most misunderstood wines out there – obscured by a multimillion-pound marketing industry that makes it difficult for consumers to honestly judge value and understand what they’re drinking.

Based on six years of on-the-ground research and unprecedented access to actual Champagne growers, CHAMPAGNE is the first book to actually describe producers and wines based on their terroir – enlightening readers by showing them exactly where, how, and by whom these great wines are made. Included in the stunning box set are the Louis Larmat vinicultural maps – the only detailed wine maps of the region, which were commissioned by the French government in the mid-1940s and have never appeared in print in English.

In a similar vein, he has partnered with Daniel Johnnes of La Paulée de New York to create La Fête du Champagne, the most high-profile Champagne event in the United States to date. Making its debut in October of 2014, La Fête du Champagne features a selected group of the region’s finest producers.
