Product Description

Product Description

RECENTLY UPDATED! Wine guides for the ultra curious, Approach Guides takes an in depth look at a wine region's grapes, appellations, and vintages to help you discover wines that meet your preferences.

Publisher note: The purpose of this guide is to profile the unique aspects of Burgundy's appellations and grape varieties; this guide does not profile specific producers or rate individual wines.

While all of France’s wine regions are special, Burgundy is in a class by itself. The wines are sublime, distinctive and evocative of place. However, as good as the wines are, developing an understanding the region’s complex wine landscape – derived from the extreme fragmentation of its classified vineyard area into small geographic plots – can be quite a task. Explaining this landscape and what makes the wines from each area unique is what this guidebook was designed to do.

This Approach Guide focuses on the five principal areas of Burgundy: Côte d’Or, Côte Chalonnaise, Mâconnais, Beaujolais and Yonne.

What’s in this guidebook

* Grape varieties. We describe Burgundy’s primary red and white grape varieties and where they reach their highest expressions.

* Vintage ratings. We offer a straightforward vintage ratings table, which affords high-level insight into the best and most challenging years for wine production in Burgundy.

* Appellation profiles. We provide detailed profiles of each of Burgundy’s appellations. For each appellation, this guide describes the prevailing terroir, the types of wine produced and what makes them distinctive.

* Recommendations. We mark our favorite appellations with asterisks (*) — our selections have a record for providing quality, consistency and good values.

* Information the way you like it. As with all of our guides, this book is optimized for intuitive, quick navigation; information is organized into bullet points to make absorption easy; and links are provided to the best online resources.

This guidebook’s approach is based on that of our wine app for the iPhone and iPad and is unique: rather than tell you what specific bottle of wine to order by providing individual bottle reviews, it gives you the information you require to make informed wine choices on any list.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wine Winner 1 July 2012
By J. N. Bullock VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got this Kindle version to take with me on a recent holiday in Burgundy and I found it was really useful.

The information is presented in a clear and easy to follow style and the area map is quite clear.

I would not agree with all that is said about some of the wines covered but that is purely a matter of individual taste. All in all a well written and very good book.

I got this to read for a holiday in Burgundy and found it well written and very informative. I keep going back to it as a reference and it's been useful to help me choose Burgundy wines in the UK.

5.0 out of 5 stars making a complex subject a bit more understandable 29 Jan 2014

I was uninformed about Burgundy prior to reading this book, often finding its complexity beyond a simple grasp. I now have a much better idea of how to seek out the better wines from this complex region.
