    DescriptionBurgundy has an appeal and a fascination immeasurably greater than its comparatively small production might suggest. Here, over many centuries, plots of vineyard land were gradually demarcated and individually named. The Burgundy of today has woken from the lethargy of the 1980s; over the past 20 years it has seen a massive increase in the proportion of wine that can proudly wear on its label 'Grand Vin de Bourgogne.' The producer profiles and maps in this guide illuminate a journey through both the well-worn vineyard paths and the backstreet wineries of the Cote d'Or, highlighting the most interesting people, places, and wines along the way. This guide, from Hugh Johnson's award-winning team, is the sixth in the acclaimed Finest Wines series, and brings the region to life more vividly than ever before. Authoritative, bang up-to-date, and full of actionable information, this essential guide is required reading for all wine lovers and makes a handsome present.
