With 800 pages and 45 full-colour maps, covering 1,200 vineyards and 300 wine villages, Inside Burgundy is a must-have reference for anyone into Burgundy.
This, the Second Edition, won the prestigious André Simon Award for 2021 Drinks Book of the Year, which is the longest-established and arguably the most respected award for wine writing in the English language. The assessor for the Award, Rose Murray Brown MW, noted, “For Burgundy lovers, there is nothing comparable anywhere in the world of publishing.” Remarkably, the First Edition of Inside Burgundy also won the award in 2010—this is the first time a book has won twice!
“The real value of this book lies not in its wealth of information (and when I say wealth, I mean that this is the Burgundy equivalent of the Bank of England’s gold vault – this is vinous Threadneedle Street…). The X factor that takes it well beyond well-written encyclopaedia is that Morris writes in three dimensions. Anyone remotely interested in Burgundy and its wines absolutely should have this book on a shelf close to hand. It is worth every penny…” Tamlyn Currin, Jancisrobinson.com
“Many books have been written about Burgundy over the years, but none currently is as useful and comprehensive a reference as the new second edition of “Inside Burgundy”, by Jasper Morris.… If you love Burgundy, this is an essential volume.” Eric Asimov, The Best Wine Books of 2021, The New York Times.
