Domaine Pierre Bouree are a traditional producer, perhaps verging on old fashioned. Sometimes the oldies are goldies.. The grapes are still trodeen by foot and old wooden Vats are still used instead of modern stainless steel. Best of all, they only release their wines when ready (and delicious) to drink. Pinot Beurot is the local Burgundian name for Pinot Gris, and here is a delicious but extremely rare example as so little remains planted in the Côte d’Or. Bourée’s vines, extending to under a quarter of an acre, are in Couchey at the northern end of the Côte de Nuits. Reminiscent of the aromatic charm of Alsatian Pinot Gris, but more discreet and with Burgundian mineral freshness and expression of being vinified in barrel. More than an intriguing rarity, this is a real gastronomic delicacy to accompany white meats, sweetbreads, or fish in a beurre blanc sauce.
