JANCIS - Opening with a glossary, historical background and general overview of how wine is made in Burgundy, the narrative goes on to investigate each of the communes that make up the wines of the Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and what is the greater Burgundian area. Each appellation is covered, with figures for acreage and the preponderance of grands and premiers crus, followed by a general overview of who owns what and how much. The genesis of particular vineyards and where their names came from, with biographical notes on the producers Morris deems the most important, coupled with their achievements, a brief analysis of their wines, along with detailed and useful accompanying maps, make up most of the package.

In essence, this is a well-written, encyclopaedic investment that's hugely informative and as manageable as it gets when browsing the leviathan that is Burgundy.

PARKER - There is no doubt that this is an essential book for anyone remotely interested in the region and its wines.
