Description

For decades, David Downie and Alison Harris have been exploring Burgundy-they walked clear across it in 2006-reporting on their finds for top magazines and newspapers worldwide. This is the third terroir guide they have collaborated on and perhaps the most detailed and personal of any so far. Burgundy is one of France's great food and wine regions. Many of the world's most sought-after wines come from there; so, too, do some of the most underrated, under-priced white wines in France, most grown in tiny, family-owned vineyards. Each of Burgundy's five wine districts is thoroughly explored in this guide, with recommendations on which wines to buy and which wineries to visit. Wine terminology is explained in a way anyone can understand. On the food side, the Burgundy still has a surprising number of luxurious restaurants, as well as dozens of country auberges visitors dream of discovering. David Downie leads you to just such places, as well as to specialty food shops where you can taste the region's terroir first hand. Burgundy's lush scenery distills the essence of French terroir. Three rivers keep Burgundy's handsome hills green year-round, and each of its sub-regions has a distinctive character where the architecture and art reflect this storied diversity.
