This splendid new book gives a detailed account of the history, viticulture, climate and geology of this area of Burgundy and discusses the conflicts over expansion of the vineyards and the use of oak.
Over 80 domaines are profiled in detail and the leading negociants are explored. More than 1000 tasting notes are included of recent and older vintages with advice on which ones to drink now and which to keep.
The best domaines are classified based on their ability to produce outstanding, excellent or good wines in all vintages.
Notes are included on hotels and restaurants to visit in and around Chablis and where the wines can be obtained in the UK and USA.
