About the Author:

 Richard Juhlin is the world’s number one champagne expert, most famous for his skills in blind taste testing. Since 1998 he has held the world record for most champagne ever tasted, having sampled more than 8,500 different varieties in his lifetime.   In 2013 Juhlin was awarded the Légion d’honneur—France’s high distinction reserved for those with flawless performance in their chosen trade. His additional awards include the Chevalier del Arc in 1997 and the Mérite Agricole from the French Ministry of Agriculture in 2002, and in 2003 at the annual Spectacle du Monde tasting in Paris he correctly identified 43 out of 50 champagnes. Juhlin is also credited with arranging one of the greatest champagne tastings ever held, a 1999 Stockholm Millenium tasting event spotlighting 150 of the best champagnes ever made.   Juhlin is the author of numerous books, including The Great Tasting and 3,000 Champagnes, both of which received the prize for “Best Book on French Wines in the World” at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. A later release, 4,000 Champagnes, received an important prize from Louis Roederer at Vinexpo in 2005.   Juhlin currently works as a freelance journalist. He writes for Spectacle du Monde, La Revue de Champagne, Wine International, and Fine Wine, among others. He is also the creator of a 13-episode television series that will cover European drinks and restaurants for American and Chinese audiences. The author is highly sought for speaking engagements worldwide, runs the Richard Juhlin Champagne Club and the Richard Juhlin Champagne Bar, and arranges VIP trips to France’s Champagne district.
