The Louis Roederer award for International Wine Book 2010 goes to the “Champagne writer with a soul” – Michael Edwards

As publishing editor of Connoisseur Magazine I am very pleased to advise that our Wine Editor and Champagne expert above all – Michael Edwards has won the prestigious Louis Roederer award for International Wine Book 2010 for his recent book “The Finest Wines of Champagne”, which we covered in a previous edition of Connoisseur Magazine.

 

Among the panel of six judges was Tom Stevenson, renowned Champagne expert and the original writer of three Champagne guides. Michael’s book was one of a shortlist of four books, all strong contenders for the award. The others shortlisted were, from the same publisher, “The Finest Wines of Tuscany and Central Italy” by Nicholas Belfrage MW; “What Price Bordeaux” by Benjamin Lewin MW and The Great Domaines of Burgundy” by Remington Norman MW and Charles Taylor MW. Chairman of the judges, Charles Metcalfe introduced the awards which were presented by the head of Champagne Louis Roederer, Frédéric Rouzaud.
