Monseigneur le Vin: The Art of Drinking Wine (Like the French Do)

2020 Rizzoli

by

Monseigneur le Vin is a distinctly cheeky but highly informative French introduction to the art of drinking wine.

Originally published in French in 1927 as part of a set of promotional books for French wine distributor Nicolas, Monseigneur le Vin is a lovely illustrated jewel of a wine primer brought back into print.

The book is perfectly relevant to today's wine lovers, charmingly presented: wine information like bouquet, color, and taste profile is essentially the same today, and Montorgueil's reverence for wine is delivered with an élan and is oh-so-very French, with observations like "A full-bodied red wine wants to be laid on its side and made cozy." Delightful and informative, Monseigneur le Vin is sure to appeal to new and experienced wine lovers alike.
