From the Publisher
The French region of Burgundy is a unique mix of historic towns and endless vineyards producing great wines, including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Chablis and Beaujolais. In Burgundy and Its Wines, Nicholas Faith and Andy Katz capture the region’s complex character in a perfect marriage of text and pictures. Together, they provide an unrivalled kaleidoscopic picture of France’s best-known wine region that will appeal to wine-lovers, travellers and francophiles alike.In the style of Tuscany and Scotland and its companion volume Bordeaux, Burgundy and Its Wines is beautifully illustrated with more than 100 sumptuous photos. It ends with a 20-page directory of Burgundy’s most interesting wines.
