In these elegantly illustrated, information-filled pages, the fascinating history of cognac unfolds, decade by decade, along with personal stories of those who produce the golden liquid; a summary of the distillation process from grape to bottle; tasting notes for the finest vintages; tips of the trade; and handsome photography.
