Story

Story

The Hubert BOUZEREAU-GRUÈRE & Filles estate is a family estate created by two old families of winemakers, Hubert BOUZEREAU originally from Meursault and Marie-France GRUÈRE from Chassagne-Montrachet. Representing the 7th generation of winegrowers in his family, Hubert BOUZEREAU founded his own estate in 1970 with his wife Marie-France. Since 2001, two of their daughters, Marie-Laure and Marie-Anne have joined them to create the Hubert BOUZEREAU-GRUÈRE & Filles estate, which comprises of 10 hectares spread over 6 municipalities of the Côte de Beaune. The production comprises of 3/4 of whites, with an excellent range of Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet wines. Careful work on the soil, strictly controlled yields and the choice of not prolonging maturing, while using new casks produce pure and fresh wines with a beautiful concentration.

The Vines

One of the priorities of the estate is the careful handling of the vines.  Pruning is the principal work in the vineyard from the end of autumn throughout the whole of winter. In spring, work on the vines is more frequent; starting in the month of May and sometimes even at the end of April, debudding begins, followed by the lifting of “les fils”, plowing, and trimming of the vines. The vines are farmed using sustainable agriculture, however it is necessary to protect the vines from disease and parasites using minimal treatments.

Harvest & Vinification

In September, the harvest is hand-picked for a period of 9-10 days.  The pressing is pneumatic, and vinification is done using traditional methods.  The wines are aged in a vaulted cellar for 12-18 months in oak barrels of about 20-15% new wood.  The white wines undergo bâtonnage until the month of March.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

An exceptional Meursault. Old vines produce the tastiest grapes. And the average vine age on this vineyard is 35-40 years old. The result is long, structured and tastes even better with age. This is exactly why Meursault is one of Burgundy’s most celebrated spots. It’s creamy and rich, with notes of toasted almond, honey, hazelnut and flint. At its best with cod.

Critic Ratings

This wine has beautiful minerality which awakens the taste buds; notes of grapefruit and lemon are present. The oak is present but only slightly so, and pairs delicately with the bouquet of the wine.
