Preface by Fabrice Sommier, President of the “Lyonnais Rhône-Alpes” association, named Best French Artisan in 2007 and Master Of Port in 2010, and Head Sommelier of the Georges Blanc restaurant in Vonnas, oversaw the selection: “Because it’s not always easy to find one’s way around wine aisles. Because heading off the beaten track is an adventure. Because it’s not easy to choose a good wine… Un Vin Presque Parfait is the guide you need. In this book, you’ll find a collection chosen by a jury of professionals and amateurs who tested over 1200 wines to select the cream of the crop. Following a blind tasting session, they then judged each bottle’s value for money, and, once the labels were revealed, they rated the bottles’ appearance. Whether you’re looking for a wine for a meal or a gift, or you dream of starting an affordable wine collection, this guide will help you in your oenological quest. There’s a whole host of different wines. Personally, I greatly enjoyed tasting all these nectars; I knew some of them already and discovered some new ones, but none of them left me indifferent. I hope you enjoy savouring these wines as much as I enjoyed tasting for you. *(except the cover, designed by Éric Doxat)
