The Merry Widows

I could SWEAR there was a book published recently entitled something along the lines of "The Merry Widows of Champagne." It's all about the prominent widows who saved the Champagne industry (Mdms. Clicquot, Bolinger, Roederer, Pommery, etc...).

After a Google/Amazon/B&N search, I can't find it! Sound familiar, have any clue? I want to get it as a gift for a friend of mine.

So it's a slow day at work and I thought I'd play detective for you.

I found this book http://www.nataliemaclean.com

and in it is a chapter called the Merry Widows of Mousse. All I found were pictures but they are of the very champagnes you mentioned. I Googled "Merry Widows of Wine" and the 3rd chapter came up.

Hope this helps.

This is reminding me of something, but since I probably wouldn't have read a book on wine, maybe it was a magazine article? Food and Wine or Wine Spectator, perhaps?
