The famous race to be first with each November's Beaujolais Nouveau has brought this wine renown beyond its reputation among knowledgeable wine lovers. But there is much more to Beaujolais. This book explores its history, deep-rooted among the vineyards, cellars and chateaux in the little-known Beaujolais region, and unveils the mysteries of vintages and vineyards such as Brouilly, Morgon, and Julienas. Here the novice will find a lively introduction, while the discerning drinker will have further evidence of why Beaujolais remains one of the world's most beloved wines. This entertaining and lavish celebration of the Beaujolais is a native product, the first book of its kind, written with the full cooperation of the wine growers, merchants, and chefs of the region. Master chef Paul Bocuse, himself a resident, provides the foreword, a charming tale of a Beaujolais childhood. The Beaujolais is as rich in lore as in soil, and it is here regaled in hundreds of photographs and dozens of stories, and even in song and cartoon. Finally, a superb collection of labels spices the entire book. Like the wine it celebrates, Beaujolais: The Complete Guide is lively and delicious, a treasure to be savoured again and again (from the front inside dust cover).
