Champagne

The essential guide to the wines, producers, and terroirs of the iconic region

By Peter Liem

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

From the expert behind the top-rated resource ChampagneGuide.net comes this groundbreaking guide to the modern wines of Champagne, presented in a stunning box set, complete with vintage maps in a pull-out drawer.

Winner of the André Simon Drinks Book of the Year Award.
Winner of the IACP award in Wine, Beer & Spirits

A stunning box set, complete with seven vintage maps in a pull-out drawer.

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.

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, it 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.

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.

Tate: Colour: A Visual History

Alexandra Loske
Authors:
Alexandra Loske

Discover the story of colour through the significant scientific discoveries and key artist's works over 400 years. From Isaac Newton's investigations through to Olafur Eliasson's experiential creations, this stunning book documents the fascinating story of colour with an extraordinary collection of original colour material that includes charts, wheels, artists' palettes, swatches and schemes."In 1704, the scientist Isaac Newton published Opticks, the result of many years of researching light and colour. By splitting white light, Newton identified the visible range of colours, or the rainbow spectrum. In Opticks, he built a colour system around his findings, and he visualised this system in a circular shape, making it one of the first printed colour wheels.The influence of Newton and his followers, combined with the invention of many new pigments as well as watercolours in moist cake form, had made painting with colour an exciting occupation not just for serious artists but also for a much wider audience. The colour revolution had begun."ContentsIntroduction1. Unravelling the Rainbow: The Eighteenth-Century Colour Revolution2. Romantic Ideas & New Technologies: The Early Nineteenth Century3.
