Our special thanks go to:
Remington Norman for his kind permission to use extracts from his book "The Great Domaines of Burgundy", in our website. In addition, we’d like to thank Janet Price and Geraldine Norman for use of photography, and Eugene Fleury for the Maps, both from the aforementioned publication.
Remington Norman is not a writer new to wine. He is a fellow Master of Wine, with a lifetime in the wine trade. Based in London, principally as a retailer, he gained long experience buying and selling the wines of Burgundy, as well as those of Alsace and the Rhone valley, selecting the real thing for his most discerning clientele from a mass of familiar and not so familiar names being touted by importers and negotiants.
He has been driven, inexorably, to explore the villages of Burgundy, to talk at length to the wine-makers and investigate their methods, discovering for him-self first hand who, at the foot of those 'golden slopes', is making the best and the true.
Remington combines the soul of an artist, the level head of a businessman and an enquiring mind. No other book on Burgundy deals so thoroughly and approachably with the philosophy and techniques of individual growers and wine-makers. He writes lucidly, unpretentiously and with authority. What he has discerned and written about will add greatly to our understanding as well as our knowledge of one of the most complex and, at best, unsurpassed wines of the world.
