The life of a wine region in Jon Wyand’s Four Seasons in Cote Chalonnaise | Per on Forbes

The Cote Chalonnaise is what you could call a “low-key” wine region. There are no famous names. No exorbitantly priced wines (as opposed to other parts of Burgundy). No famous cities. It’s just a normal wine region. This book is exactly a reflection of that. It is a low-key wine book.

Four Seasons in Cote Chalonnaise, or to give the real French title of the book, “4 saisons en Cote Chalonnaise”, is a celebration of the people, the landscape, the wines and the region. Or maybe not, it is not a celebration, it is just a beautiful presentation of how life is in a wine region. An everyday life that is similar to life in many other wine regions around the world, but very different from what you usually see in glitzy reportage from chateaux and wine estates. A lovely trip into the life of a wine region.

It is a big photo book, beautifully produced and presented, with photography by Jon Wyand and texts by Emmanuel Mere, published by Bamboo Editon.

Here’s the introduction to the Forbes article:

“Four Seasons in the Côte Chalonnaise” (4 saisons en Côte Chalonnaise) is not a wine book like most others. Many wine books tell you about appellations, grape varieties, wineries and lots of other facts. This one does not. (Well, it does, a little bit.) Instead, this book tries to give you a feeling for how life is in the wine region that is called Côte Chalonnaise.

We are in the southern part of Burgundy, where they grow mainly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. But we are far away from the famous appellations in the Côte d’Or, further north, where some of the world’s most famous vineyards, and most expensive wines, can be found.

The Côte Chalonnaise is not famous. It is rural. And it is very much the French countryside.
