Some of the most illustrious wines in the world come from Burgundy and Serena Sutcliffe provides professional insight into their complexities and diversity of flavours. The book provides information which should be of interest both to wine enthusiasts travelling to the region and those simply looking for advice on buying wines from this classic area. An introductory section examines the region and its wine, including the history, geography, wine-growing and winemaking techniques, and the classification system. Vintages from the last thirty years are described and advice is offered on which wines to keep. An A-Z listing by region of more than 600 Burgundy producers is cross-referenced to a detailed producer profile section that describes each of the five regions (Chablis, the Cote d'Or, Maconnais, the Cote Chalonnaise and Beaujolais) and the wine-growers and winemakers within them.
