"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."
