The wines of Chablis and the Grand Auxerrois

The wines
of Chablis builds on Rosemary George's pioneering books on the region, The
wines of Chablis and the Yonne and The wines of Chablis and the Grand
Auxerrois, and brings the story of Chablis completely up to date. It begins
with the history of the region, from St. Martin de Tours in the fourth century
to the twenty-first century, and goes on to consider the vineyards, the Crus,
how the grapes are grown in this the most northerly wine growing region of
Burgundy, and how wine is made in Chablis in the twenty-first century.

The bulk of The wines
of Chablis profiles the producers. This Who's Who of Chablis winemakers and
estates is an invaluable, up-to-the-minute resource for all lovers of this
steely, dry white wine. George goes on to profile the most important wine
growers of the surrounding areas, the Grand Auxerrois, including the Cotes
d'Auxerre, Irancy, Coulanges-la-Vineuse, St. Bris le Vineux, Chitry-le-Fort,
Joigny, Tonnerre, Epineuil and Vezelay. Appendices cover one hundred years (and
more) of vintages, as well as vineyard areas and bans de vendange dates. Rosemary
George's The wines of Chablis is an
essential guide to the different wines of this part of France for all wine
professionals and enthusiastic amateurs.
