The book has wonderful photography, with a nice history of the region. A few major vineyards are listed, but don't expect it to be a list of key Burgundian hot spots! More the asthetic and artistic history of the area and how wine got started and grew.
This book is sort of all fluff; the pictures are pretty, but it's not really very informative. I'd skip it and buy a Michelin guide unless you want a picture book for your coffee table.
Beautiful pictures with short poetic writings on a few appellations and broad history.Thats what this book is, but it does not have much more info and dont bother if your trying to become a burg expert. Though I guess you do need to see what the vineyards look like.
