The Wines of Burgundy is nominated for a James Beard Award! In this updated sequel to the James Beard Award-winning Côte D'Or: A Celebration of the Great Wines of Burgundy, Clive Coates, MW, one of the world's most passionate and knowledgeable Burgundy experts, explores the evolution of this complex, exciting wine region over the past five decades. New growers and winemaking methods, weather and soil changes, fruit quality, and the region's enigmatic character have combined over the years to create increasingly excellent wines, and Coates assesses the results in detailed tasting notes, winery reviews, and his precise and sensory narrative. Celebrating new standouts as well as longstanding favorites, this is the essential guide to Burgundy.
In 2008, My Bombay Kitchen: Traditional and Modern Parsi Home Cooking, by Niloufer Ichaporia King, won the James Beard Book Award in Asian Cooking, and Paul Freedman's Food: A History of Taste was nominated in the Reference category. This year, The Wines of Burgundy is one of three nominees for Best Book in the Beverage category. The winners will be announced at the James Beard Foundation Awards Ceremony in New York City on May 4th.
