“I think my top 2008 recommendation as a reference book would be Clive Coates’ The Wines of Burgundy.”
The World Of Fine Wine

“Highly recommended to anyone with even the slightest interest in Burgundy.”
Library Journal

An update to Coates's award-winning 11-year-old book, Côte D'Or, this substantially expanded volume is now the comprehensive guide to Burgundy vintages dating from 1959 to 2006. At the book's center are 43 pages of regional maps delineating estate names and boundaries. New additions include entire chapters devoted to Burgundy's subregions, Chablis and Côte Chalonnaise. A series of concluding appendixes presents yearly crop sizes; a regionally organized, star-rated wine list; and Coates's ratings of whites and reds from 1945 through 2005, with clarification of numbered distinctions. Highly recommended for enological collections.
