Jean-Luc & Eric Burguet Gevrey Chambertin 'Mes Favorites' 2013 (750ml)

Jean-Luc & Eric Burguet Gevrey Chambertin 'Mes Favorites' 2013 (750ml)

From 18 parcels in vineyards situated in Brochon and the northern sector of Gevrey with a few to the east that average approximately 60 years of age; these include Les Corvees, Reniard, Jouise, Sylvie, Champs Perriers, Carre Rougeaud, Combe de Lavaut, Fourneau, Murots, Billard and Creux Brouillard. 100% de-stemmed, indigenous yeasts, minimal intervention. 20 months aging in oak barrels (30% new).

To the relief of Burguet fans, after a smooth transition his two sons are carrying on the family tradition. Jean-Luc first started working at the domaine in 1997 and Eric followed in 1999, working with their father in the vines and the cellar, doing everything from preparing orders to discussing the date for harvest with Alain. Jean-Luc did a ‘BAC Pro’ focusing on viticulture, then a BPREA (a professional degree for managing agricultural operations). During his studies he worked at several neighboring wineries in Gevrey-Chambertin including Domaine Bachelet, and also worked in Bandol. With the goal of broadening his knowledge abroad, he then worked in California with Jim Clendenen at Au Bon Climat in Santa Barbara. Eric completed a ‘BAC’ and a BTS that included both winemaking and commercialization of wine and spirits. Like his brother, he interned in production, at Domaine Henri Gouges in Nuits-Saint-Georges, and also had stages in the wine trade. The 2011 vintage was the first with Jean-Luc and Eric at the helm as Alain officially retired. Jean-Luc and Eric have taken their father’s work a step farther. Viticulture is now biodynamic (though not certified), and the two have fitted the cuverie with their own copper biodynamizer.
