Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0789202239, Hardcover)

Cognac is associated not only with tradition and quality, but also with refinement, luxury, and even style. Although the region that produces it -- the Charente -- is quite small, the many different brands vary greatly in taste and aroma. More than a hundred producers -- from world-famous names of fascinating but little-known smaller vinters and distillers -- are profiled in this handsome guide. Organized alphabetically for easy reference and illustrated with full-color photographs of the distinctive bottles, the entries contain extensive tasting notes describing aroma and flavor providing information about the quality and individual character of each brand. In addition, the book teaches you everything you might want to know about Cognac, from its history to the way it is distilled and aged to recipes for Cognac cocktails. Complete with a glossary, Cognac is a must not only for aficionados but for anyone who has ever enjoyed a sip of fine Cognac after a wonderful meal.
