Description

The first book to take readers inside the mansions and estates of Champagne today. Champagne, the king of wines, opens the doors to its most legendary homes. Veuve Clicquot, Taittinger, Krug, Moët & Chandon, Perrier Jouët, and so on; all the most famous Champagne makers, together with the homes of some discreet neighbors, for the first time invite us to discover an art of living that has never before been revealed. A preserved style in which daily refinement blends with the splendor of history, in which the winemaking soul strives unceasingly to honor an exquisite style worthy of the Enlightenment. Brought together into a single volume, more than twenty prestigious buildings and other lesser-known ones are presented. Châteaux and manors listed in the registry of Historic Monuments, known hitherto only for their cellars and the names of their vintages. Exterior, interior, detail and landscape photographs capture the splendor of these homes whose intimate interiors had, until the publication of this book, only been shared by their owners with a few guests drawn from the world’s prestigious ranks.show more
