LVMH releases coffee table book on its wines and bubbly

Luxury brand Louis Vuitton Moët & Chandon, whose portfolio of wine and spirit brands includes names like Hennessy, Dom Pérignon, Veuve Clicquot and Krug, has released a coffee table book that gives readers a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the estates that produce its world famous wines and bubbly.

Penned by travel writer Alain Stella and photographed by Francis Hammond, the 280-page hard-cover French Wine Chateaux traces the history, wine and spirit-making traditions of some of the most luxurious and historic estates in the world.

The wines are also accompanied by tasting notes from cellar masters, as well as recipes from some of France’s top, Michelin-starred chefs including Yannick Alléno, head chef of luxury hotel Le Meurice in Paris, and Dom Pérignon chef Pascal Tingaud.

Published by Flammarion, French Wine Châteaux: Distinctive Vintages and Their Estates was released this week in the UK and retails for £55.

The US release is scheduled for February 5, 2013 and will retail for $85.

Similar titles that explore old winery estates in France include Great Family Wine Estates of France: Style, Tradition, Home, by Solvi dos Santos and Florence Brutton, and Larousse Wine: The World’s Greatest Vines, Estates and Regions.
