Not yet rated | write a review
For wine lovers, Burgundy is the holy grail, with wineries that have long produced incomparable vin de terroir. But Burgundy is as famous for its idiosyncrasies as for its rare vintages. Through visits to 33 of the Côte d''Or''s finest vineyards--the ones that have consistently outperformed others through the centuries--Grand Cru adds new insight into our understanding of this remarkable region and its distinctive approach to quality. In individual entries, Norman profiles each Grand Cru vineyard, providing a listing of its principal owners, origins, topography/geology, the best sources for wine, and more.

Filled with spectacular color photographs, Grand Cru is written as “a paean to the exhilaration and excitement that Burgundy is uniquely capable of generating."
