Pierre Bourée’s Bourgogne Rouge 2018 is a great introduction to the domaine’s Pinot Noir range and a fine rendition of the classic red Burgundy style.
As estate tradition dictates, fermentation occurs in foudres, prior to 16 months’ aging in French barrique, during which the barrels are rolled to stir up the lees to add further complexity. The cuvée is then bottled without filtration to retain a wonderfully pure expression of classic Burgundian Pinot Noir style.
Pierre Bourée still uses old wooden vats rather than stainless steel and the grapes are trodden by foot. And last but not least, Bourée only release their fine wines when they are ready to drink – a very refreshing practice in today’s market.
