Book Description

Subdivided into hundreds of domaines, often family-run and sometimes covering no more than a few hectares, Burgundy can be off-puttingly fragmented even to wine experts. In compiling this revised edition the authors revisited all the domaines that appeared in previous editions plus scores of 'rising stars', to select the very best and most interesting of them - and remove those that no longer come up to scratch. They have spoken to winemakers about their grapes, their soil and their techniques - and, of course, sampled their wines. Following on from the domaine-by-domaine guide are descriptions of the microclimates of the region, the most important grapes and wine styles, as well as tips on buying, storing and tasting wine and a rundown of recent vintages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very comprehensive reference 12 May 2010
This book is a Burg lover's paradise, with listings for most of the notable producers that detail each domaine's history, vineyard holdings, negociant wines and winemaking techniques and philosophy. The book is organized by sub-regions/villages, with a general description of each appellation. Be aware that if you're looking for tasting notes of specific wines, this is not for you. It is, however, the most comprehensive and up-to-date reference on the Cote d'Or that I've seen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not everyone is happy with this! 2 Aug 2010
On the face of it, the book is a good read, with a subjective selection of excellent Burgundy producers. Having recently spoken with one of the famous winemakers dealt with by the book, I no longer take all of the commentary as "gospel". He was adamant that much of the research and writing for this edition was not done by the authors. He was happy with the chapter on himself, but said that some in Burgundy were dissappointed with innaccuracies and untruths contained within. The first edition of the book is said to be the best in terms of accuracy. Nevertheless, as stated, I found it a good read.

This book is great for an accessible insights into the mysteries of Burgundies. Often regarded as Wine Nirvana, Burgundies are nonetheless little understood and aloof compared to Bordeaux. This book peels the layers and provides the first insights of domaines and their history. Hope someone does one for Rhone valley

4.0 out of 5 stars Great insight into the big names in burgundy 26 Oct 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Always use this book for crucial and detailed info about the key domaines in each commune. Not as broad as Clive Coates or bill nanson, it is less descriptive and informative but feels more energetic and flowing, a really focused and insightful book that covers most top (not all) domaines. Could offer more insight into where the value is and more insider hints, definitely worth purchasing.
