About this title


Champagne: The History and Character of the World's Most Celebrated Wine by Serena Sutcliffe, Simon & Schuster, First Printing, 1988. This is an illustrated history and description of the wine, its producers, and it enjoyment in current times. Oversize green boards with gilt lettering; together with a pictorial, price-clipped dust jacket.

From Library Journal:

Aiming to convey the beauty and versatility of the drink and the area, Sutcliffe knowledgeably discusses the history and uses of bubbly, including advice on serving, vintages, and storing. She also provides addresses for and information about the great Champagne houses. More specialized and attractive than Sheldon Wasserman's Sparkling Wine ( LJ 2/1/85), it ignores all but true champagne, while including useful maps and suggestions for food combinations. An excellent, enthusiastic writer, Sutcliffe lovingly conveys much detail in an entertaining manner. Recommended for comprehensive collections of wine books and libraries serving discerning champagne lovers. Carolyn I. Alexander, USATEC, Technical Information Ctr., Fort Ord, Cal.
