Praise for Bettane and Desseauve's Guide to the Wines of France:

“The definitive and encyclopedic work of two of the giants of wine journalism in France.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"If you have any interest in French wines-and you should-then there is no better single guide to that celebrated region than the encyclopedic Guide to the Wines of France . . . Kudos, too, to the publishers, who have delivered a book that is beautiful, easy to use, and feels like you're getting far more than your money's worth."
 -The Austin Chronicle 

“Destined to be on the shelf of every wine lover.”
