We have been so grateful for the positive reaction to Pearl, and in response to popular demand from readers who want to take the book with them on their travels which is challenging at over 5+ pounds/2.5+ kg for the hardcover version – we have published Pearl in e-book form. For this e-book version, we have updated a few facts, primarily on vineyards holdings, and added dozens of new tasting notes.

The research and writing that went into the hardcover version of Pearl of the Côte was truly a labor of love; for those of us passionate about Burgundy, the chance to delve deeply into the subject is a dream come true. Our goal was to produce a timeless reference book and we believe we succeeded.

Pearl explores the underlying terroir of each of Vosné’s grands and premiers crus, explaining its significance in relation to its neighbors and providing wine lovers the insight necessary to understand what they should expect when opening one of these bottled masterpieces.

It is packed with useful information including the history of each terroir, the top producers, specific grower holdings plus collecting and aging tips. To help put it all in context, Pearl includes original and meticulous modern maps, creative art work, and stunning photography – all faithfully reproduced for the e-book version.

This enological journey includes a full chapter on each of the Vosne-Romanée grands crus – Echézeaux, Grands Echézeaux, La Grande Rue, Romanée St. Vivant, Richebourg, La Romanée, La Tâche and Romanée-Conti. There is also complete coverage of every one of the Vosne-Romanée premiers crus (e.g. Les Beaux Monts, Les Brûlées, Cros Parantoux, Les Gaudichots, Les Malconsorts, Les Suchots and more).  There is also a chapter describing what could well be the greatest tasting ever held with 74 vintages of Romanée-Conti, from 1870-present. Here you will find associated tasting notes including Meadows’ first 100-point wine!

For those who wish to become an expert on the wines of Vosne-Romanée and Flagey-Echézeaux, there is simply no better way than to pour a glass of your favorite Vosne while enjoying the most complete exposition ever written on the subject.


As soon as you submit your order you will receive an informative email which will include a link to download the Flux Media Player in order to access Pearl in e-book format (If you already purchased the Burgundy Essentials Audio Series, you will already have the Flux Media Player downloaded–but of course may download the player/e-book on two different devices). Note: the e-book will only work with the proprietary media player we provide the FlickRocket Flux Player. You may download this player on Kindle Fire (no other forms of Kindle are compatible), PC, Mac (OSX), Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, or Android Tablet and Phones. Buyers are permitted to download the player/e-book ONE TIME ON UP TO TWO DIFFERENT DEVICES and the media player/e-book will NOT transfer to any other devices or computers so be sure to download on the devices you will be using to read the e-book. (Of course you can de-license one device and set up on a new one, for instance if you buy a new Kindle Fire or iPhone.)

IMPORTANT: As noted above, as soon as you submit your order, be sure to look for an email in your inbox (or possibly your spam folder). The email will have the link to download the media player and other important information including a password that will be assigned to you for your new FlickRocket account. If you already purchased the Audio Series, but have forgotten your password, once in the shopping cart, there will be a link to reset your FlickRocket password. Note: this password is NOT your Burghound shopping cart or subscriber password, if applicable. After placing your order you can download the player/e-book on two different devices as you choose.

Once you download the FlickRocket Flux Media Player (just as you would any program you download) on your selected device, you will be prompted to sign on to FlickRocket. This is when you’ll use the FlickRocket password included in the automated email as noted above or the password you formerly were assigned. Then you simply click on the e-book link already in your player and it will download.

As soon as you submit your order, you will also receive an e-receipt which may go to a spam folder since it is automated.

FOR GIFTS: It is important that the purchaser information be in the BILLING address and the GIFT RECIPIENT in the SHIPPING ADDRESS. The name and email in the SHIPPING ADDRESS will receive the product. The e-receipt will go to the email address in the BILLING ADDRESS.
