Hugh Johnson On Wine

'On Wine-which brings together dozens of "articles, reviews, and introductions," from titles as various as Vogue, Decanter, The Sunday Times Wine Club newsletter Wine Times, and the journal you have in your hands, as well as snippets from Johnson's bestselling books-has many moments where the writing transcends the ostensible subject matter.' The World of Fine Wine One of the world's great authorities on wine, Hugh Johnson has been writing on the subject (among others) for almost six decades. This selection chronicles his personal take on developments that have revolutionised the industry for half a century and more. Johnson's prose describes as no one else can the endlessly fascinating characters and landscapes of the wine world. He tells of setting sail with sybarites and braving the perfect storm, he debates at length the Pleasure Principle, lip-smacks through decadent dinners, teaches and learns in Tokyo and files breathless dispatches from Beijing. He bids a poignant farewell to the loveliest vintages, decries peremptory judgement and urges the Slow Food philosophy; falls in love (again), this time with Tokaji, tells warm winter tales through a vintage port and sets out a summer picnic at the source of the Seine - all the while dryly annotating the scribbles of his younger self with contemporary marginal hindsights. This thoughtful, illuminating collection will delight not only lovers of wine, food, history and travel but also anyone who enjoys the intoxicating power of words.

The world's most comprehensive and up-to-date guide to Champagne, featuring all the latest vintages. The Champagne Guide 2020-2021 contains fully independent assessments, with profiles and ratings, of over 120 champagne producers and 800 cuvées. New in the 2020-2021 edition: New format, fully double the size of the past five editions. Independent assessments and ratings of more than 800 cuvées, all tasted recently. All the latest insights on the top 120 champagne houses, growers and coopératives. A Hall of Honour to acknowledge the best producers in Champagne this year. Highlights of all the best champagnes of the year at every price and style. Updated assessments of the past 24 vintages in Champagne. Brand new chapter on decoding champagne labels and bottling codes. Maps of the champagne villages and vineyards. All set off with photographs of the region by Tyson Stelzer and full-colour bottle images. Praise for The Champagne Guide 2020-2021: When I first reviewed Tyson Stelzer's The Champagne Guide, I marvelled at the quality of the overall package and the wealth of information it contained. Then and now it was entirely his personal knowledge, with fearlessly objective ratings. Now he has achieved the impossible, almost doubling the size of the 2018-2019 edition, with 582 gilt-edged pages. The 300,000 words within expand the scope of the information at every turn, and the amount of beautiful photography is likely to make it the only coffee-table book to show the eyeball and thumbprint traffic it will engender. It goes without saying that anyone with an interest in Champagne must have this book. - James Halliday This is the most comprehensive and finely wrought and written book on Champagne I have ever seen. Truly epic work. - Matthew Jukes THE definitive guide and authority on everything champagne. This 'bible' is beautifully presented and the immersive research invested and passion is on full show. A stunning achievement. - Luxury Wine Trails An extraordinary achievement - the depth of understanding and notes about each house and their wines is exceptional. - Mark Smith
