The Impossible Collection of Champagne
All prices include VAT
Part of Assouline’s special series, The Ultimate Collection, which is an homage to the art of luxury bookmaking. Books in the collection are hand-bound using traditional techniques, with color plates hand-tipped on art-quality paper; each page of this limited-edition series bears the unique imprint of the artisan. Complimentary white gloves and signature canvas tote bag are included with each purchase from Assouline’s Ultimate Collection.
For sheer magic, champagne has no equal. It is the very emblem of sophistication, of celebration, of uninhibited pleasure. One of the most closely protected wine appellations in the world, it enhances French art de vivre and contributes to its global prominence and prestige. Ever since champagne was first dreamed up at the turn of the eighteenth century, the region’s visionary producers have forged ahead to open new markets and develop local terroirs.
From exceptional vintages to an array of more recent releases, this exclusive selection curated by World’s Best Sommelier Enrico Bernardo spans three centuries and is illustrated by various tasting experiences, insightful tips and singular anecdotes. He highlights the most remarkable bottles ever produced, all united by the impossibility of ever having them together in one cellar at a time, hence this volume’s title. Presented in a wooden box, this edition is bound by hand and luxuriously crafted with hand-tipped labels, making it a must have for all champagne aficionados.
