Beschreibung

The science of champagne effervescence, as well as the colorful history of champagne, is provided in a lively and informative examination of one of the world's most popular drinks.

"Praise for the previous edition: "This book presents the birth, life and death of a champagne bubble with such gusto, good humor and clarity that you will devour its delicious contents in one gulp. Whereas good champagne is to be sipped, this book is not. You will never experience the sensual elegance of champagne in quite the same way again once you have read this entertaining account of its history and 'fizzics.'""---Richard N. Zare, Nature
