Book Description

In this book, Clive Coates, a Master of Wine who has spent four decades of his distinguished career in Burgundy, shares his vast insider’s knowledge of one of the world’s most exciting, complex, and intractable wine regions. Personal rather than encyclopedic, and informed by Coates’s unparalleled access to regular, extensive tastings, this book imparts the author’s philosophy and expertise as to how best approach, appreciate, and discuss the wines of Burgundy. Coates updates and supplements the domaine profiles featured in his two previous books, Côte D’Or and The Wines of Burgundy with new in-depth assessments of specific vineyards. Divided into three sections—Vineyard Profiles, Domaine Profiles, and Vintage Assessments—My Favorite Burgundies considers the leading vineyards and today’s top estates, and features detailed maps and a wealth of tasting notes that reflect how the wine develops as it ages. Enlivened by Coates’s singular, firsthand knowledge and precise descriptions, this is an indispensable guide for amateur and professional enophiles alike.


Product Description

Review

"Clive Coates, a Master of Wine, does not turn out breezy memoirs; neither does he treat his subjects in the base vernacular that passes for wine commentary these days. His acumen is unchallenged, not least on the subject of Burgundy, his thoughtfulness provocative, and his opinions on individual wines as close to definitive as subjectivity can ever be... If you want to understand the issues whirling through Burgundy right now, Coates is the man to alert you first and foremost." Mariani's Virtual Gourmet Newsletter 20131201 "A personal view enriched with Coates's expertise laid out in a number of sections including vineyard profiles, domaine profiles and vintage assessments... Of value to a variety of readers, novice or connoisseur alike." -- Jancis Robinson JancisRobinson.com 20140102 "Considered one of the foremost experts on the Burgundy region, Coates shares his vast knowledge and tasting notes of the best wines it has to offer."

2.0 out of 5 stars Not easy to navigate in this personal collection 31 Dec. 2013
By Johnny Ng - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
While the volume is fairly huge, the book is too much a personal collection of notes and assessments. I believe one can hardly recall what it contains and what's not.
