Riassunto: The French region of Burgundy is a unique mix of historic towns and vineyards, great wines, and staunchly individualistic wine-makers, winebrokers, and wine merchants. Now, award-winning writer Nicholas Faith and photographer Andy Katz capture all the complexity of the region?s character in a perfect marriage of text and images. Their journey takes us to places where the temptation is to linger?Côte d?Or, renowned for its Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes; Dijon, the historic treasure house of the region; the lovely town of Beaune, heart of the Burgundian wine business; the picturesque villages of Pommard, Volnay, and, above all, Le Montrachet, a tiny mecca for lovers of white wines. Venturing also to outlying regions, they visit Chablis, the Mâcconais, and Beaujolais. The journey ends with a digest of practical advice and information, including a selective guide to the best merchants and producers, and a directory of the Burgundian appellations and Grands Crus.
L'autore: Nicholas Faith is a well-known journalist and a leading wine writer based in London. His first wine book, The Winemasters, was awarded the Andre Simon Prize. His book on Cognac won prizes in both Britain and the United States
