Gault Millau

The international gourmet guide was created in 1969 by the two Frenchmen Henri Gault (1929-2000) and Christian Millau (1929-2017). Alongside the Guide Michelin, it is one of the most influential French restaurant guides. In contrast to the latter, the Gault-Millau is not limited to a listing with rating symbols, but offers a verbal description. The guide is feared for its sometimes cynically sarcastic formulations of extreme severity, which in the past have often brought it threats of litigation and court cases. The guide is published annually with country editions for France, Germany (separate guide for Baden-Württemberg), Austria, Switzerland and South Tyrol.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
