"A master class in Burgundy, given by one of the world's foremost authorities. Coates, who clearly adores the region, knows Burgundy intimately. His evaluations of its wine producers are delightfully opinionated." --Jacqueline Friedrich, author of The Wines of France
Coates is an expert guide. A wine merchant for 20 years, he became a Master of Wine in 1971 and produced The Vine magazine from 1984 to 2005. Who better to describe the region best known for Gevrey-Chambertin, Vosne-Romanée and Puligny-Montrachet? --Guy Collins, Bloomberg News
"What other writer gives you the confidence that he truly knows each property, its terroir, its proprietors and its produce, and can give you a fresh and honest assessment?" --Hugh Johnson

Coates' first volume (Côte d'Or) is of course still a must-read and not replaced by this one, because the evaluation of the domaines is much more expanded in that first work. But for tasting notes of Burgundy after 1995, this book is essential. Moreover Coates' writing style is excellent: to the point but with a poetic hint. So it's fun reading as well!
The double columns on each page make for difficult reading.
The maps are outstanding.
The majority of wine enthusiasts are going to seek out older wines to drink as they appreciate that most good burgundy needs plenty of bottle age before it is at its best.
The book is very well written and represents good value at the price.----------lets face it, you would struggle to buy a half decent bottle of burgundy for the price of this book!!!
