The Finest Wines of Burgundy

A Guide to the Best Producers of the Côte d’Or and Their Wines

Published January 2012 by:

ISBN 978 1 84513 692 5

A portable, hard-wearing guide to the Côte d’Or and ninety of its most interesting producers and their best wines. Truth be told there could easily have been 150 producers worth noting – but not in the prescribed 320 pages.

Discussing the dark arts of modern elevage, and the even darker arts of vineyard management; likewise pulling no punches about the Burgundy is a minefield myth and the rise of ‘early onset aging’ – or oxidation to you and I – harsh words about the situation come also from the vignerons.
