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 ????.

Bright red colour. Good juicy nose with a nice crispness from the higher altitude vineyard. It kicks on very nicely, offering intensity and weight. On the palate, very good acid-fruit-tannin balance.
From 3 years to 12 years.
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. Wines are transferred to traditional oak barrels (limiting the amount of new oak barrels.) No fining or filtration to keep the wines as 'natural' as possible.
Should be served between 15 to 16 degrees.
Lobster pasta, osso bucco, roasted beef, and meat stews. Cheeses: Camembert, brie, reblochon, tomme de savoie.
