Pierre Bourée Gevrey-Chambertin
Burgundy - France - 2014
Delicate sweet strawberry fruit, fresh acidity and a clean, vibrant palate. A restrained style, with elegance and a savoury, autumnal finish.
Traditionally matched with game, fine red Burgundy works extremely well with strongly flavoured dishes including mushrooms, cheese, duck and liver.
Regular ploughing, limited fertilising as well as minimal pruning is used to reduce both vigour and yield. The grapes are hand picked and transported to the winery in small containers. Hand sorting is followed by wooden vat maceration and fermentation, with regular pigeage before pressing and followed by oak barrel maturation.
