Tasting Notes

This stunning example of Pinot Noir displays characters of Girolle cherry alongside rustic notes that express the terroir.

Producer details

This winery, owned by the Vallet family, represents everything that we are proud to be associated with; attention to detail, careful selection of the best grapes and above all a passion for making superb wines. Three generations of the family are involved - Louis Vallet (who is Pierre Bouree's nephew), his sons Bernard and Jean-Christophe and grandson Louis Henry. All Pierre Bouree wines are vinified in their cuverie in Chambolle Musigny and then matured in their cellars at Gevrey-Chambertin.

In the vineyard

When Louis Vallet’s great Uncle, Pierre Bouree founded the business in 1864 it had no vines of its own, however in 1874 Pierre splashed out with the acquisition of the entire Clos de la Justice vineyard, which remains the Domaines flagship wine. Advancements in the vineyards have been limited, only manure has been used for the last half a century which has encouraged wild asparagus to grow amongst the vines. Unfortunately their appearance coincides with sulphur spraying so their existence is short lived. Harvesting is manual, with the Domaine opposed to the use of mechanical techniques.

Food Recommendations

Ideal with poultry and game-birds or a delicate Burgundian cheese such as Montrachet.

In the press

Gevrey-Chambertin Clos de la Justice is a monopole , we are alone to own this particular land; it is a single vineyard with 4 walls around , which is quite unusual. This vineyard has a real and specific quality; Robert Parker wrote "Clos de la Justice has only a level of village but has the quality of a 1 °Cru , it is one of the best Gevrey-Chambertin ". This vineyard is really a micro climate, there is little soil and you find under immediately the rocks.., so the roots are very deep."

Awards

Bernard and his brother Jean-Christophe Vallet were awarded French Wine Makers of the year 2012! 2010 Vintage: Sommelier Wine Awards 2014 - Silver
