9780002161046: Burgundy (Companion Guides)

Burgundy is one of the richest areas of France - rich in art, architecture, history, cuisine, wine and countryside. Nowhere in Europe are there greater examples of the Romanesque than the basilica of La Madeleine at Vezelay or the sculptures of Gislebertus of Autun and the anonymous masters of the Brionnais. The very names of its vineyards - Corton, Chambertin, Montrachet - conjure up a province as robust and mature as its "grands curs". Nowhere in France is there a greater concentration of treasures; the tombs of the Dukes at Dijon, the Hospices at Beaune, the Renaissance chateaux of Tanlay an Bussy-Rabutin. Nowhere in France is the sense of the past so immediate; nowhere does it so palpably inform the present. This guide has been updated and revised to provide comprehensive coverage of this region.

Review:

For anyone planning a visit to Burgundy this Guide is indispensable. --The Times Literary Supplement

As elegant as it is exhaustive. The whole book has body and bouquet, [its author] is well-read, witty, relaxed and impeccably observant. --Guardian
