5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, concise introduction to Burgundy wines June 12 2000
Format:Hardcover
Although Coates' "The Cote d'Or" is the indispensable (and massive) reference for Burgundy wines, Sutcliffe's pocket-size book is an excellent introduction to the subject. I'm impressed at the author's ability to be both concise and comprehensive, as well as to make her very definite opinions known. I especially appreciate her introduction to the concept of "terroir", and her descriptions of the soil in each village and appellation -- critical to understanding the character of Burgundy wine. I received my copy of this book as an end-of-tour gift from the guide who led our group of nine through Burgundy last month. She recommended it highly, and the ensuing 10 days have led me to agree with her.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Quick Burgundy Reference Book May 25 2000
Format:Hardcover
In format, this book is not dissimilar to Parker's Burgundy or Coates' Cote d'Or (i.e., listings by appellation, listing by producer, etc.). It is nowhere near as comprehensive as either of the aforementioned works (both of which I highly recommend), however, it does not try to be. It does provide succinct overviews of the major districts and producers. Serena Sutcliffe, a Master of Wine, is very knowledgeable about her subject. It is worth buying the book just to get her perspective. The greatest negative about the book is the small type. This may be personal to me, but I read wine books for enjoyment, and I find that the very small type of this book diminishes that enjoyment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wines of Burgundy May 25 2005
By Finn M. W. Caspersen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
There is simply no better guide to bring with you when traveling in Burgundy. It is pocket size and yet comprehensive. Other books maybe have great depth but they are suited for reading at home. This is the book that you bring with you and can satisfy the needs of the novice or the connisseur. Serena Sutcliffe is equal to any in her knowledge of Burgundy and you can not go wrong following her advice.

Make sure you get the 2005 edition as it has the latest vintage notes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essental Burdundy Guide Sept. 23 2005
By Thomas E. Shook - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
A thorough review from A-Z with Burgundian wines and Domaines. Our recent visit would have been too haphazard without this guide.
4.0 out of 5 stars Not much out there to compete with this... March 18 2013

This is as comprehensive a pocket guide to Burgundy producers as I've been able to find. It's designed for quick guidance when you're in a retail environment and you spot a producer you haven't seen before. It's definitely not a substitute for Clive Coates' books on the region, but it can be useful.
