Domaine Burguet, Côte de Nuits

Alain Burguet has been making terrific wines in Gevrey Chambertin for nearly thirty years.

Alain Burguet left school in 1964 to work in the vines and made his first vintage under his own name in 1972.

Alain is approximately two barrels tall by one barrel wide, and his muscular physique could be seen in the wines he made in the 1980s, where the tannins were occasionally too firm for the fruit.

Since then, his style has evolved and the fruit is now being picked later and riper to add a richer dimension to his wines. He is assisted by his two sons, Jean-Luc and Eric.

Most of the eight hectare domaine consists of village Gevrey Chambertin.
