Pierre Bouree is a truly family owned and family run winery which has been passed down through generations culminating in masses of experience and expertise along the way. This winery 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. All Pierre Bourée wines are vinified in their cuverie in Chambolle-Musigny and are then matured in their cellars at Gevrey-Chambertin..
This is a really natural example of a Burgundian Pinot Noir, where grapes come into the winery with stalks intact and the first 10cm of each barrel is crushed by foot. This is a much more gentle method of pressing meaning the quality of the juice is the best it can be. Oak ageing takes place in new French barrels for 15-20 months and then finished wines are not filtered but checked by candlelight, then bottled directly from barrel by hand on a cask by cask basis. This really is a shining example of boutique winemaking and the love and attention that goes into the hand crafting of this wine is evident in its quality.
A beautiful light garnet colour with earthy and strawberry fruit on the nose. Light in body with bright red fruit shining through. A mouthwatering acidity balances the moderate tannins and the finish is elegant but long.
Traditionally Coq au Vin is perfect, yet it goes equally well with roast chicken or young game birds. For vegetarians, try matching with pasta bakes or ratatouille.
