The Great Domaines of Burgundy: A Guide to the Finest Wine Producers of the Cote d'Or, Third Edition

Overview

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.

Overview

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.

    A must have book for Burgundy lovers

    There are three books on Burgundy that are absolute must haves: Clive Coates' "Cote d'Or," or his revised edition now called "Wines of Burgundy"; Anthony Hanson's "Burgundy"; and THIS book, Remington Norman's "Great Domaines of Burgundy." The first edition came out around 1992, a second edition came just a few years later. I have both and they are among the most dog eared books in my collection. The second edition went out of print years ago and is now more than a decade old. Finally, with considerable work and assistance from Charles Taylor, edition three is here! The book consists primarily of detailed profiles of key growers in each of the communes of the Cote d'Or, which include notes on their vineyard holdings, viticultural and winemaking methods and the style of the wines. There's a glossary, some vintage notes, brief notes on organic and biodynamic viticulture and winemaking and so on. If you love Burgundy, it's a book you will read and refer to over and over and over again. It's not comprehensive -- the growers are Norman and Taylor's picks and you will no doubt question some that are in and wonder why others are out. You will agree with some of the grower assessments and disagree with others -- but that is part of the appeal of Burgundy and this book's appeal as well.

    The third ed. is already on offer in France and the UK and was widely distributed at Les Grands Jours de Bourgogne in March 2010, with Mr. Taylor present to hawk his wares. He has much to be proud of -- updating this book had to be tons of work given the revolution in viticulture and winemaking all along the Cote d'Or since the second edition!

    Buy it.
