Most people have heard of Burgundy and Beaujolais, and have a rough idea of what kinds of wine they are. But, how many realize that a tiny percentage of Beaujolais is white? Or, that Entre deux Mers, from Bordeaux, took its name from the two tidal rivers (not seas) that surround its vineyards? From A to Z, with 400 enticing photos, here's essential information for all wine lovers who want to increase their knowledge of the fruit of the vine. With a simple approach, this encyclopedic guide presents all the French wine appellations and the characteristics of their product. Each appellation receives one or two pages, with complete details on color appearance, taste, nose, grape varieties, and soil--as well as recommended food pairings, production volume, and serving temperatures. Plus, there are lists of the best vineyards to guide your purchase. And, don't worry if you don't know the region where a certain variety comes from-the alphabetical presentation makes it easy to find out what you want to know.
