Beautiful dark red colour. Strong and powerful nose with red fruits, and cherry aromas. This wine has both body and spirit. On the palate, it’s massive, yet velvet-smooth with tannins that bring power and longevity. 

Volume/Bottle size:
75cl
Alcohol%/ABV:
14.00%

The Domaine Burguet is a bit special to my heart as it’s like family. Indeed, Alain Burguet (founder of the Domaine) is my dad’s cousin. They grew up together in Gevrey Chambertin (as my dad would say, “Gevrey Chambertin is the cradle of civilization” – very modestly as you can see ????). Alain Burguet has a small domaine of 9.5 hectares which he built up by himself. When he started in the 70s, he was really ahead of all the winemakers in Burgundy as he adopted the ‘biodynamic’’ technique. His peers, at that time, were making fun of him as they were all using pesticides. Alain is known to make fabulous Gevrey Chambertin appellations. For the last 10 years, his 2 sons, Jean Luc and Eric, are heading the domaine while Alain is playing golf, but still with an eye on what they are making ????.

The Burguets are usually the last domaines to harvest in Gevrey Chambertin, to seek the full maturity of grapes in order to have fuller wines with more finesse and delicate tannins. Grapes are hand-harvested and 100% de-stemmed. Jean Luc and Eric prefer a 'hands off' approach to vinification and therefore they don't thermoregulate their tanks.
Should be served between 15 to 16 degrees.
Lobster pasta, osso bucco, roasted beef, meat stews. Cheese: Camembert, brie, reblochon, tomme de savoie.
