Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy, LVMH has been expanding their operations by opening a training center in Singapore and by increasing their stake in Hermes. Their latest endeavor was to create a coffee table book, that gives readers an inside glimpse into the estates that produce the brand’s famous wines, champagnes and liquors. Hennessy, Dom Pérignon, Veuve Clicquot, and Krug are all part of LVMH’s prestigious portfolio and are featured in the coffee table book. Well-known travel writer Alain Stella penned the 280-page hardcover coffee table book; Francis Hammond took the photographs. Titled French Wine Chateaux traces the history, wine, and spirit-making traditions of the luxurious estates.
To make this coffee table book worth its price, the wines are accompanied by tasting notes from cellar masters, and Michelin starred chefs. Some of the chefs featured are Yannick Alleno and Pascal Tingaud. The US release of the book is scheduled for February 5th, 2013 and will retail for $85
