Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this book, Clive Coates, a Master of Wine who has spent four decades of his distinguished career in Burgundy, shares his vast insiders knowledge of one of the worlds most exciting, complex, and intractable wine regions. Personal rather than encyclopedic, and informed by Coatess unparalleled access to regular, extensive tastings, this book imparts the authors philosophy and expertise as to how best approach, appreciate, and discuss the wines of Burgundy. Coates updates and supplements the domaine profiles featured in his two previous books, Côte DOr and The Wines of Burgundy with new in-depth assessments of specific vineyards. Divided into three sections—Vineyard Profiles, Domaine Profiles, and Vintage Assessments—My Favorite Burgundies considers the leading vineyards and todays top estates, and features detailed maps and a wealth of tasting notes that reflect how the wine develops as it ages. Enlivened by Coatess singular, firsthand knowledge and precise descriptions, this is an indispensable guide for amateur and professional enophiles alike.
