Domaine Alain Burguet
Gevrey-Chambertin, Cote-de-Nuits, Bourgogne, France
A source of excellent Gevrey-Chambertin.
The domaine is located in the centre of Gevrey-Chambertin with nine crus produced from a total vineyard area of 8.35 hectares.In2012therewasachangeof guard whenAlain'ssonsJean-LucandEricassumedcontrolofthedomaine and Alain tookretirement.
The domaine has now moved from organic to fully biodynamic farming practices but even in the 1970s and 80s when the use of chemical sprays in other vineyards was at its height. Alain’s organic farming included practices such as growing grass between the vine rows with no use of sprays; all in the cause of farming richer and healthier soils with maximum microbian activity that in turn results in better grape acidity and phenolic maturity.
All processes are carried out by hand and naturally in the vineyard and winery with minimal intervention. Natural yeasts are used with no temperature control at fermentation and the wines are aged for 20 months with minimal SO2 and no fining or filtration.
