Description: An exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the stunning estates of France's most prestigious and long-standing vineyards. Hennessy, Moet & Chandon, Dom Perignon, Mercier, Krug, Ruinart, Veuve Clicquot, Chateau d'Yquem, and Cheval Blanc: across the world these names are synonymous with prestige, secrets passed down from generation to generation, and the inimitable genius of French wine production. These producers, who together comprise the Moet Hennessy group, weren't satisfied with simply striving to make the best Cognac, Champagne, Sauternes, or Saint-Emilion. Since they were founded, each has been dedicated to cultivating an environment in which these exceptional French products can be fully appreciated. And so, in order to entertain in style, these legendary institutions have constructed elegant estates. Guests savor meals that have been composed to subtly complement and ultimately intensify the experience of tasting the sought-after libations. Stunning countryside surroundings, beautiful interior design, a friendly atmosphere, and often contemporary art all play a role in entertaining guests; many eminent designers and architects have contributed to these exquisite locales. This volume is an invitation to discover the magic of these beautiful retreats, and the institutions behind them.
