I started writing a book at the beginning of summer; about Burgundy, oddly. Much as I enjoy writing it is a lot of effort for mad man me. Consequently, it occurs to me I should find out whether anyone would actually be interested in buying it before flaying myself alive writing the bloody thing. Hence this poll.
My book is called 50 Great Burgundies and it is an unhinged hurtle through what I consider the 50 Burgundies most entitled to leave you in penury. They are not all the famous crus from exalted producers, but the kind of things I seek out because they’re available, attractive and (almost) affordable.
For each of the fifty wines I recommend I’m writing a general style guide and a more detailed analysis of a vintage I feel particularly successful. Again my chosen vintages might be be the ones received wisdom would lead you to expect. I also give general notes about the producer, and there may be more than one wine per producer.
I was planning to publish this as an Amazon/Kindle eBook, because everyone can read them on their smartphones, tablets, computers, etc. and I doubt anyone would dare publish me in book form. It’d be a couple of hundred pages long with a sprinkling of unobtrusive pictures to break up my screaming rants. It would be quite cheap.
So, my question: Would you be interested in buying an Elitistreview book?
