Description : In this stunning addition to the Assouline Ultimate Collection, Enrico Bernardo, the world’s best sommelier, imagines the perfect cellar filled with the most exceptional wines of the twentieth century: The Impossible Collection of Wine. Weighing the virtues of rarity, terroir, taste, and historical mystique, Bernardo’s is a list any connoisseur could only dream of. To turn grapes into bottled poetry, the winemaker must be a kind of alchemist. Despite changes in technology and tastes over the past 100 years, the craft has remained largely unchanged; a great wine remains the product of countless factors, not least of which is the smile of providence. In these pages, Bernardo celebrates the most exquisite vintages around the globe, from the 1928 Krug Champagne to the 1951 Penfolds Grange Bin 95 to the 1973 Stag’s Leap Estate SLV, inviting the reader on a journey through history to savor an impossible collection. This hand-bound oversize luxury edition, featuring hand-tipped images and presented in a wooden crate, will be a must-have for the library of any true wine connoisseur.
