Domaine Alain BurguetAll products from this vendor
The stately Alain Burguet has been one of Gevrey-Chambertin's most respected winemakers for 25 years. He graduated from school in 1964 and began working with vines and created his first wines under his name in 1972. Alain is about two barrels high and one barrel wide. This could be seen in wines that were tannic and saturated with fruit. His style has evolved since then, the fruits and tannins in the wines have become much more elegant and softer. He is now helping his two sons, Jean-Luc and Eric, whose names can already be seen on the labels. The house owns 8 hectares from the village of Gevrey Chambertin.
Pinot NoirAll products from this varietal
Pinot Noir has very aromatic profile, very fresh acidity and low level of quaite soft tannins. The nature of Pinot Noir wine is its flavors of red berries and cherry (red sour cherries in lighter wines and cooked black cherries in bold examples). This wine matures very exating, developing notes of berry jam, violets, leather, moss and mushrooms.
Gevrey-Chambertin is the largest and most significant appellation in Côte de Nuits at the time. It only produces red wines - they are strong, with powerful tannins and aristocratically balanced. Due to the dense structure of the so-called "body", the wines are able to sustain a long life and therefore are a great investment for the future. Their bouquet is composed of red and black currants, cherries and violets that is replaced by aromas of leather, wool, ground and liquorice in more mature wines. Made in a good year, Gevrey-Chambertin wines reach their peak in 10 to 20 years.
