Item description for Burgundy and Its Wines by Robert M. Parker Nicholas Faith...

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---Cte 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 Mcconais, 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Burgundy and Its Wines?

Pretty but not very useful  May 25, 2007
This book is sort of all fluff; the pictures are pretty, but it's not really very informative. I'd skip it and buy a Michelin guide unless you want a picture book for your coffee table.
Burgundy & its Wines  Jan 30, 2007
The book has wonderful photography, with a nice history of the region. A few major vineyards are listed, but don't expect it to be a list of key Burgundian hot spots! More the asthetic and artistic history of the area and how wine got started and grew.
Great presentation.  Jan 26, 2007
Great portrait of Bordeaux, it's wines and communes, written in a non-pretensious style. Since I haven't been lucky enough to travel to the Bordeaux, Robert Joseph descriptions has help me envision the region, even without the need of the photos (althoug they've also helped).
