Inside Burgundy by Jasper Morris MW
September 15th, 2021
The Second Edition – expanded and completely revised
Jasper Morris’ Inside Burgundy: The vineyards, the wine and the people has been the benchmark reference on Burgundy’s wines, winemakers and vineyards since its first publication in 2010.
Now, for a new decade, Jasper Morris and BB&R Press are releasing the Second Edition: 150 pages longer, completely revised and with expanded coverage.
Inside Burgundy is at once personal and encyclopaedic, offering detailed insider knowledge gained over decades allied to insights into the places – and above all the people – that make Burgundy so special. In the new edition, Jasper Morris describes more than 1,200 vineyards and 300 wine villages, and profiles and appraises some 700 domaines.
Every entry on vineyards, villages and producers has been revised and updated. Many more domaines have their vineyards listed, and nearly all vineyards have growers listed – an invaluable, and unique, insight into who makes which wine from where.
Coverage of the regions where Burgundy remains affordable is notably enhanced: Chablis, the Côte Chalonnaise, the Mâconnais and the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune and Nuits.
All the existing maps, which give unmatched insights into Burgundy’s complex network of vineyards and villages, are updated, improved and in several cases extended. New ones – which include six maps showing plot-by-plot holdings in individual Grand and Premier Cru vineyards –have been added.
There is fresh and fascinating material on the growing season and the changing climate, and on the ways viticulture and winemaking are changing – even in tradition-loving Burgundy.
This new edition has 800 pages – 150 pages longer than the first – with 45 full-colour maps that show individual vineyards.
Jasper Morris lives in Burgundy. He is the most respected writer on, and critic of, Burgundy – and the only major writer on its wines to live there. He has been specialising in Burgundy since the early 1980s, first as a wine merchant and author and, since 2017, as a critic and commentator via his acclaimed website Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy. Jasper is a Master of Wine (since 1985).
His status as a local – a true insider – allows Jasper Morris to visit hundreds of Burgundian vineyards and cellars over the course of a year, to watch and learn from the producers, to taste their wines from their youth to maturity. When not in Burgundy, he is in demand as a lecturer and taster at events in London, New York and the Far East, and online. Few other critics, if any, have tasted such a wide range of great Burgundies.
Why not add a bottle of your favourite Burgundy to enjoy while you’re leafing through the pages.
