For wine lovers, Burgundy is the holy grail, with wineries that have long produced incomparable vin de terroir. But Burgundy is as famous for its idiosyncrasies as for its rare vintages. Through visits to 33 of the Côte d'Or's finest vineyards--the ones that have consistently outperformed others through the centuries--Grand Cru adds new insight into our understanding of this remarkable region and its distinctive approach to quality. In individual entries, Norman profiles each Grand Cru vineyard, providing a listing of its principal owners, origins, topography/geology, the best sources for wine, and more. Filled with spectacular color photographs, Grand Cru is written as “a paean to the exhilaration and excitement that Burgundy is uniquely capable of generating.”

Burgundy is a fitting monument to the region that is capable of producing, in Parker’s words, “the world's most majestic, glorious, and hedonistic red and white wine.” With the publication of his classic volumes, Bordeaux and The Wines of the Rhône Valley and Provence, together with the several editions of his Wine Buyer’s Guide, Robert M. Parker, Jr., has emerged as America’s most influential and articulate authority on wine. Whether he writes of the fabled French châteaux or of lesser-known growers and producers from around the world, his books have proved invaluable reading for connoisseurs and neophytes alike, for they contain not only hard-headed, frank analysis but an undisguised and positively contagious enthusiasm for his subject. In this book, his most ambitious and comprehensive to date, Parker offers an extraordinary guide to the growers, appellations, and wines of Burgundy, the viticultural region in eastern France that produces the most exotic, sought-after, expensive, and frequently least understood wines in the world. Like its predecessors, Bordeaux and The Wines of the RhOne Valley and Provence, Parker’s Burgundy has all the makings of a classic. It is a beautifully produced book, and it boasts more than thirty specially made color maps, with those depicting the individual appellations drawn in such exquisite detail that each and every vineyard is visible. Burgundy is a fitting monument to the region that is capable of producing, in Parker”s words, “the world’s most majestic, glorious, and hedonistic red and white wine.”
