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!
