Anthony Hanson is a British Master of Wine[1] and a senior consultant to Christie's International Wine Department, as well as an expert on Burgundy,[2][3] an international wine judge and author.[4] His book Burgundy was first published in 1982, and since reissued in 2003.[5] Following its initial publication, the book gained notoriety in part due to the famous description, "Great Burgundy smells of shit", a sentence which was modified in later editions.[6][7][8]

Hanson has also contributed to publications such as Decanter[2] and The World of Fine Wine.[9]
