Description
Let the old bottles relax as much as possible... "Wine and food should mutually highlight each other"... "It's sacrilegious to offer great wine to just anybody". Timeless advice from Monseigneur le Vin, a nom de plume of celebrated French writer Louis Forest (1872 – 1933). Republished from 1927 in English translation, the French gem offers a pithy, informative and oh-so-French guide to wine. Addressing the 'the conscious gourmand', three sections take the reader through preparing, serving and drinking wine. Advice on how and when to decant, wine temperatures, how to appreciate bouquet and colour, useful phrases and what wines complement which foods. Includes the original illustrations by Charles Martin (1834 – 1934), best known for his work at magazines such as the ‘Gazette du Bon Ton’ and ‘Vogue’. The book was originally published as part of a set of promotional books for French wine distributor Maison Nicolas.
