Burgundy has a far stronger hold over the imagination and passions of wine lovers than the relatively modest number of bottles it produces. Over the centuries, hundreds of plots of vineyard land were demarcated, farmed, and individually named. The monks who did this work noticed that each vineyard had a slightly different character, and that this difference was consistently expressed each year in the wine it produced. Today we call this phenomenon terroir, and in Burgundy it finds its fullest expression through the region's signature varieties, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This sumptuously illustrated and beautifully produced guide, complete with maps and more than 150 full-color photographs, leads readers on a journey through the well-worn vineyard paths and into the cellars of the Côte d'Or, where they will encounter exciting but relatively undiscovered producers, as well as recognized stars. Bill Nanson's informative and entertaining narrative describes the region's vineyards and vintages, as well as the cultural, historical, and personal realities involved in their translation into wine. Jon Wyand's stunning photographs bring the people and the countryside to life. The Finest Wines of Burgundyenhances the enjoyment and understanding of some of the world's most celebrated, original, and seductive wines.
