101 Champagnes And Other Sparkling Wines To Try Before You Die


The definitive guide to champagne and other sparkling wines. Champagne is delicious; we love its flavour, we love its fizz. Champagne's association with success, partying and fun are as ingrained in the wine as the bubbles themselves.

As the godfather of champagne, Dom Perignon, famously declared: 'Brothers, I'm drinking stars'. But there's more to fizz than just champagne. Prosecco's meteoric rise in popularity has opened up our taste buds to other sparkling wines: from the glacial hills of Treviso, the lava slopes of Mount Etna, rural Brazil to the more genteel South Downs of England, the choice is vast.

There has never been a better time to enjoy a glass of bubbly. Navigation is important as the new and exotic vintages aren't all wonderful, and this is where Davy Zyw can help. As one of the country's leading experts in sparkling wine, Davy explains why each of the 101 entries has made the cut.

This is the ultimate ice-bucket list for fizz fans, and every bottle in this book will knock your socks off.
