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.
The Champagne Guide 2020-2021 by Tyson Stelzer ($59.95) is available now wherever good books are sold, or download the e-book from tysonstelzer.com ($44.95).
