Subdivided into hundreds of domaines, often family-run and small in size, Burgundy can seem forbiddingly fragmented even to wine experts. Now, acclaimed wine writers Remington Norman and Charles Taylor help wine lovers unravel the mystery of this grape. In compiling this revised version of their much-praised book, they revisited all the domaines that appeared in previous editions, along with numerous “rising stars,” to select the very best-and remove those that no longer make the grade. Norman and Taylor spoke to the winemakers about their grapes, their soil, and their techniques…and, of course, sampled their wines. In addition to a domaine-by-domaine guide with coverage of the region's microclimates, most important grapes, wine styles, there are tips on buying, storing and tasting wine and a rundown of recent vintages.

Remington Norman was a Master of Wine and is a member of the Académie Internationale du Vin. He is also the author of the multi-award-winning Rhône Renaissance.

Charles Taylor established Charles Taylor Wines over 20 years ago and has become a leading supplier of single-estate wines to the trade, both in the UK and overseas.
