More About the Author

A Yorkshireman of the 1962 vintage - and that's a very good vintage in Burgundy by the way! Bill Nanson considers his greatest accomplishment was running the 8th fasted time in the world for the half-marathon in 1985 - rather, it would have been the 8th fastest time in the world for a woman - so perhaps that's his sensitive side coming out!

A chemist by training, Bill gave up the lab-bench in the 1990s for the excitement of hanging around in airport departure lounges (subtitled, the world of business), working in London from 1995 before moving to Switzerland in 2000. Today he shares his daily work between offices in Switzerland in Germany, but his car's autopilot is set for Beaune, much to the disappointment of his wife - who would rather take something from the Barossa - though even she concedes that their whites are not bad...!

Product Description

Review

‘Even if you have a passing interest in Burgundy, buy Bill’s book’

(www.wineanorak.com)

‘The real joy of these books is that they are approachable in their size and the photographs, usually of the proprietors of various domaines, are so stunning that they make the words come alive’

(Yorkshire Evening Post)

This is the land of exquisite Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and its leading producers are individually profiled with charming photographs by Jon Wyand.

(The Scotsman)

Format: Paperback
Bill Nanson's book is a perfect foil to several excellent books on Burgundy by Coates, Morris and Remington Norman/Charles Taylor. Nicely written, well researched and easy to read it provides complementary insights into many Domaines from long-standing greats to the resurgent and up-and-coming. Clearly choices were made with some interesting omissions but it is nonetheless a comprehensive work. Highly recommended and that's without taking the current discounted price into account.

Format: Paperback
This was invaluable on our recent trip to Burgundy. We are what you would probably call keen amateurs when it comes to wine and this book provides enough information without going into reams of detail. It was good to have indications of wines from under-valued or up-and-coming producers, and tips on what to watch for. It certainly helped us to choose wines during our holiday. This is obviously only one man's selection and I don't doubt that some would disagree with the author's selections but it suited our needs perfectly. I also found the writing style to be engaging, no doubt reflecting the author's passion for the wines of the region.

This is an excellent review of a range of Domaines in the Cote d'Or capturing all the enthusiasms of the author without having reams of prose expended on each domaine. Many interesting discoveries from whom I am about to buy. The only reason I haven't given it a maximum score is that price and drinking corridor indications are omitted.
I fully reasile these are a moving target but would appreciate a little guidance nonetheless. Mr. Nanson clearly has a soft spot for the American vignerons, but why not? In short a very helpful guide to all travellers to the region. Bravo!

A first class guide to use in Burgundy. It helped greatly during visits to taste and buy wines during a holiday in the area.

really informative and interesting - however the selection of produers is highly personal (and not always comprehensible) - so recommended, but not as the 1st book about Burgundy.
