Alain Burguet Gevrey Chambertin Mes Favorites 2013
Barrel-chested Alain Burguet has been one of Gevrey’s most respected vignerons for a quarter of a century. He has been making terrific wines in Gevrey Chambertin for nearly thirty years, during which time his techniques have evolved. He is now assisted by his two sons, Jean-Luc and Eric. Most of the 8 hectare domaine consists of village Gevrey Chambertin. Les Justices, En Billard and En Reniard are bottled on their own, alongside two blends – a Gevrey Chambertin Tradition and his excellent ‘Mes Favorites’, made from old vines and favoured sites.
Jancis Robinson : "Dark crimson. Quite intense nose. Very juicy. Lots of pace and ambition – and fruit. Admirable persistence."
