The book & eBooks

Inside Burgundy has been a critical and sales success ever since first publication in 2010. It is at once personal and encyclopaedic, offering detailed knowledge gained over decades allied to insights into the places – and above all the people – that make Burgundy so special. In the main part of the book, Jasper Morris describes more than 1,000 vineyards and 150 wine villages, and profiles and appraises some 450 producers. Added to this are chapters on the background to Burgundy – geography, winemaking, grapes – and on vintages. Thirty-six unique, highly-detailed maps offer insights into the complex network of vineyards and appellations.

The hardback book (654 pages and 2 kilos) is complemented by eBooks, designed to be enjoyed on iPad, iPhone and Mac screens. Electronic capability adds video clips – stand with Jasper in the vineyards – zoomable, interactive maps and beautiful colour photographs to the award-winning text.

As I read I feel that Jasper is acting as my trusted guide through the complexities of this wonderful region. I think he really understands Burgundy – he ‘gets’ it.

– Jamie Good, The Wine Anorak

This puts all the electronic ‘e’s into Beaune Heaven … Burgundy seen through the lens of an artist, glowing with colour and so vivid it looks close enough to touch.
