Pierre Bourée crafts highly sought-after traditional Burgundy with balance, finesse, and aromatic subtlety. Classically-styled Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with fine keeping potential, neither densely coloured nor heavy, but gently extracted with a remarkable spicy, floral and savoury range that can develop beautifully into, what is known in Burgundy, a queue de paon (a peacock’s tail). It is rare in Burgundy to find equal mastery of red and white wines, but winemaker Bernard Vallet is a brilliant vinifier of both.
The domaine was established by Pierre Bourée (himself) and his nephew Louis Vallet in back 1864. Owner/winemaker, Bernard Vallet is the 4th generation to run this high quality Burgundian négociant and keeps in close touch with his favourite growers so that he can be in the best position to buy the finest parcels that he wants at the best prices. Bernard also crafts exceptionally fine domaine-bottled Burgundy from their own holdings in Charmes Chambertin, Gevrey-Chambertin and Beaune. Grapes are trodden by foot and wines are only released when they are ready to drink.
