Nine Centuries in the Heart of Burgundy
Burgundy is justifiably one of the most celebrated wine-growing regions in the world, and at its heart lies the Cellier aux Moines, established by Cistercian monks in the 12th century. Written by the vineyard’s present owner Philippe Pascal and Burgundian historian Gilles Platret, this lavishly illustrated book charts its story across nine centuries, describes the terroir, the grapes and the vintages, and records the recent restoration of the buildings and the revival of its rich heritage of artisanal wine-making.

In this masterly study of national consciousness, language and literature in late Tudor England, Brennan explores patriotism and discusses its nature, the different modes of cultural expression it finds, and analyses its use in political and relgious propaganda. She draws a distinction between nationalism and patriotism and sets out to examine the connotations of patriotism in its own right, rather than as nascent nationalism.
