Inside Burgundy by Jasper Morris has, since its publication in 2010, become the standard work on the wines, vineyards and people of one of the greatest vineyard regions on earth.
A Second Edition is available in printed form (Fall 2021), and will be published in eBook in 2022/23. Meanwhile, the award-winning classic First Edition is available as a pair of interactive eBooks, Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits. These have all the erudition, authority and balance of the First Edition printed book, plus:
Superb interactive maps: zoom into close-up, move around with a finger-tip. Live links take you to the text on grands crus and premiers crus
Videos that take you right into the vineyards with Jasper Morris
Hundreds of colour photographs from two top Burgundy photographers portray the world-famous vineyards and the people who make the wines
Highlight text, make your own notes – invaluable for building up a personal library of cellar information and tasting impressions
A Glossary by Jasper Morris explains key terms at the tap of a finger
The iPad's light weight and portability make the interactive eBook edition of Inside Burgundy an invaluable companion on visits to the region.
How wine books should be done!
The quality of this book is so wonderfully enhanced in this iPad format, that it has rocketed to the top of my favorite wine books. Being able to zoom in on maps with such high resolution could not be done with the best magnifying glass in print form. The added video content and beautiful photos draw you in with the charm and allure of a Montrachet!
I have read many wine books, but this is taking it to another level. In addition to the extensive and detailed content, the pictures and the videos add another dimension to the information provided. It gives a real sense of the place. Also the fact that the text is fully searchable makes wine research (and wine buying) extremely easy.
This book contains a very detailed description of the Cote de Beaune, with detailed maps and description of the vineyard and producers.
A fantastic work by Jasper Morris. I can't wait for the third volume!
