Le Montrachet (Bernard Ginestet's Guide to the Vineyards of France) by Bernard Ginestet



Hardcover with dustjacket. From jacket notes: "This unique series consists of individual and detailed guides to each of France's major vineyards. (Ginestet) has also ensured that it provides the reader with an understanding of the feel of the soil, the climate, the people and the history of each area -- in short every aspect of what many regard as France's single greatest contribution to civilized living. The Montrachet vineyards produce a mere 30,000 bottles a year. But the wine they contain is the subtlest, the most elegant, and simply the best dry white wine in the world, which now sets standards of excellence for wine-makers on three continents. But as Jean-Fracois Bazin shows, such renown is not the result of any accident, but rather of a unique combination of geology, geography and centuries of human dedication." Lavishly illustrated with color photographs, maps and wine-ratings. Printed on quality paper. Approx 6 x 9 1/2 x 7/8.
