The 2016–2017 edition features fully updated information on the distinction between houses and producers and how to avoid corked, stale and lightstruck champagnes, as well as a new section on vintages. The Champagne Hall of Honour ranks the best producers in Champagne this year and the best champagnes of the year under $60, under $100, under $200, at any price, and the best blanc de blancs, rosé and low-dosage champagnes.
The Champagne Guide tells you everything you need to know about how champagne is grown and made and how to buy, open, serve and store champagne, all for less than the price of even a cheap bottle of Champagne!
