Not yet rated | write a review
For the wine lover, Burgundy is the holy grail as for centuries its tapestry of vineyards has been responsible for producing some of the world?s most incomparable bottles of wine. But all is not equal and Burgundy is as famous for its idiosyncrasies as for its rare vintages. What makes one wine fine and another pedestrian and why one plot is designated Premier Cru while its neighbour is Grand Cru at several times the price, all rests in a very few hectares of soil. In looking at Burgundy?s individual vineyards and how they define their terroir, Remington Norman identifies what drives quality in modern Burgundy and is therefore the key to understanding its wines. Paying a lot for a mediocre bottle is still a common pitfall when buying burgundy today, but this book will help you find real excellence, whatever the price, and arm everyone intrigued to know what the fuss is about with the tools to find out.
