Tom Stevenson’s Champagne & Sparkling Wine Guide 2015
The 2015 Guide contains full tasting notes of every Gold and Silver medal winning wine from the Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships 2014, in addition to all Best in Class and World Champion trophy winners, not to mention introductory chapters bursting with the latest information about sparkling wine production, including what really happens during autolysis beyond the story of amino acids, what the fuss is about Diam Mytik and other technical closures, the reasoning behind why selection of yeast for second fermentation should be different from the first fermentation, the latest jetting pulse technology, the “magnum effect” explained, and so much more. Plus a Glossary of almost 50 pages that will gently rock the most hyper Fizz Geek to sleep every night with its definitions of different yeast selection, adjuvants and every technical term explained in plain English.
So many of the illustrations require colour, but the B&W edition is offered as an inexpensive option for those who are willing to settle for less crisp reproduction.
If you click on one of the following editions that best suits your needs, you will be taken to the geographically appropriate webpage without committing yourself to any purchase unless you make that choice for yourself.
