Pierre Bourée’s Bourgogne Blanc 2016 is a great introduction to Pierre Bourée’s range and the classic white Burgundy style. As estate tradition dictates, fermentation occurs in foudres, prior to a year’s 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 Chardonnay. Fine purity with crisp, fresh apple/peach, citrus and floral notes. Lovely balance; concentrated and deep with citrus notes and minerality.

Description

Pierre Bourée’s 2018 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru is a limited availability fine red Burgundy with a great heritage, from the village commune of Morey-Saint-Denis.

Grapes for this great 2018 Clos de la Roche vintage were handpicked to ensure quality, and the wine was aged for 16 months in oak barrels where it gained greater complexity and structure. A truly gastronomic Pinot Noir, that would suit game in particular.

The Clos de la Roche is a semi-monopole, with a long history that has involved movement of its boundaries, and was awarded Grand Cru status in 1936. Facing east/slightly south of east at around 250 metres above sea-level, the Clos du Roche is often regarded as a southerly extension of the Grands Crus of Gevrey-Chambertin.

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.
