‘Puligny is quiet except for the barking of dogs behind the closed gates of stone houses and the gentle susurration of fermenting wine, audible only in the imagination.’
Daunt Books was proud to republish Simon Loftus’ gem of a book Puligny-Montrachet last year. Subtitled Journal of a Village in Burgundy, this is a wonderful evocation of the village home of one of the world’s greatest dry white wines. First published in 1992, Puligny-Montrachet is a timeless portrait of a hidden world that beautifully captures life and wine-making in rural France.
‘Not just one of the best books on wine, it’s one of the best books on France.’ Michael Palin
