Description

Originally published in French in 1927 as part of a set of promotional books for French wine distributor Nicolas, Monseigneur le Vin is a lovely illustrated jewel of a wine primer brought back into print. The book is perfectly relevant to today's wine lovers, charmingly presented: wine information like bouquet, colour, and taste profile is essentially the same today, and Montorgueil's reverence for wine is delivered with an elan and is oh-so-very French, with observations like "A full-bodied red wine wants to be laid on its side and made cozy." Delightful and informative, Monseigneur le Vin is sure to appeal to new and experienced wine lovers alike.

Author Biography
