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. Cadman's allocation of 120 bottles represents one quarter of the production in 2014. 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.

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.

Intensely spicy, creamy and mineral aromas. Deliciously ripe palate with peachy fruit, citrus and spice with underlying minerality throughout, with integrated notes of blanched almond, vanilla and pear eau die vie, and a long fresh mineral finish.
