Latest reviews


Bursting Bubbles by Robert Walters is the most provocative wine book Ive read in a while.

Henry Jeffreys, taken from his article in The Guardian, 'The best books on drink of 2017'


'A brilliant and appealing book and the story it tells is fascinating and compelling leaving me thirsty to try some of the wines that are its subject.'

Tim James, Wine Mag


'There's much to agree with in this book. It is well written and researched, a pleasure to read and Walters argues his case persuasively. Most importantly... it communicates a joy and enthusiasm for good Champagne. I whole-heartedly recommend it.'

Huon Hooke, theRealReview.com



Testimonials


'...the most refreshing, pretension-pricking, myth-busting and amusingly unfrothy book on the subject I've read'

Andrew Jefford (multi-award-winning author of The New France and columnist and contributing editor for both Decanter and The World of Fine Wine)


'In the tradition of Kermit Lynch's Adventures on the Wine Route, Bursting Bubbles is a wonderful and informed exploration of the best grower Champagnes and the characters who make them. It shatters old myths and reveals new truths, making Champagne the place and the wine as intriguing, beautiful and magical as ever'

Andrea Frost (award-winning author of Through a Sparkling Glass and columnist for TimAtkin.com and The World of Fine Wine)


'Rob Walters approach to Champagne (and to wine in general and to life!) in this beautifully written book is so cheerful and entertaining that one risks not realising how thoughtful and informative it is as well - a risk that I would advise any wine lover to take without hesitation'

Jesús Barquín (award-winning co-author of The Finest Wines of Rioja and Northwest Spain and Sherry, Manzanilla and Montilla, and the co-founder of Equipo Navazos)

Review:

Bursting Bubbles is an absolute pleasure to read from start to finish. Packed with insightful perspectives, Robert Walters captures the people and history of Champagne unlike any other book. It s very rare that a book on wine manages to fit both wine experts and novices equally. Whether you consider yourself an expert on Champagne, or you ve never popped a cork in your life, Bursting Bubbles has plenty to offer both ends of the spectrum and everyone in between. --Derek Morrison, The Good Wine Shop (Independent Champagne Retailer of the Year 2017) & Co-Founder of 'Grower Champagne Month'

In the tradition of Kermit Lynchs Adventures on the Wine Route, Bursting Bubbles is a wonderful and informed exploration of the best grower Champagnes and the characters who make them. It shatters old myths and reveals new truths, making Champagne the place and the wine as intriguing, beautiful and magical as ever. --Andrea Frost, award-winning author of Through as Sparkling Glass and columnist for TimAtkin.com and The World of Fine Wine.

Yet another book about Champagne? Yes, but this is no encyclopaedia covering a recap of the history of the region, the development of the traditional method and a rundown of the big names of Champagne. The book is engagingly written and will appeal to a wide variety of readers...This book is a consistently argued account of why grower Champagnes matter and to that extent it is an important book that anyone interested in Champagne should read. His prose is fluent and concise and he is like an entertaining, if slightly bossy, tour guide to his favourite growers. I would dearly love him to write more. --Heather Dougherty, Fizzicality
