Format: Hardcover
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.

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

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.

Lots information about domaines of Burgundy - so title is 100% exact about the content. I just wanted to have more information about Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as the grapes, how they age and what to cellar. Also these great domaines produce wines that are really expensive. No list of bang for your buck.. But Burgundy is always expensive. So just a good read about top producers.
I am fascinated about the fact that authors had visited all 100+ domains that are mentioned in the book!
