"I want to repeat that Maison Pierre Bourée is making absolutely superb white Burgundies and this is one of the best-kept secrets for great white wines in the entire Côte d'Or." John Gilman A View from the Cellar Issue 35 2011
John Gilman returned to Pierre Bouree in March to taste the finished 2010 wines. In addition to rating many more wines we were delighted to see he increased his score for several finished wines. As Gilman says "This "old school" domaine continues to turn out some very impressive and age-worthy examples of both red and white Burgundy and they very much deserve a wider audience. They have to offer some of the very best values to be found in the entire Côte d'Or."
Our order is assembled and most wines have now sold out at Pierre Bouree, however, we do have small stocks of a number of wines that you can still purchase at the Pre Arrival Price. Once these have sold there will be no more.
Here is a small selection. Click here to view the complete range of 2010 Pierre Bouree wines.
2010 Chambertin Grand Cru
Normal Price $298.00
Pre Arrival Price $253.00
John Gilman has increased his score on the 2010 Chambertin to a huge 96 Points. This has to be one of the great values of the vintage! Only 21 left.
Last July I thought that the 2010 Chambertin from Pierre Bourée was stunning and one of the greatest young wines I have ever had the pleasure to taste from the domaine, and nothing has changed in the interim. If one is looking for a reasonably priced (at least in relative terms) and profound young bottle of Chambertin, one could do worse that this superb wine. The utterly classic nose soars from the glass in a blaze of plums, cherries, raw cocoa, grilled meat, woodsmoke, fresh herbs and a profound base of soil. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and complete, with a great core of sappy fruit, stunning soil inflection, ripe, fine-grained tannins and outstanding length and grip on the focused, youthful and transparent finish. A great young Chambertin! 2022-2075. 96 Points
2010 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru
Normal Price $189.00
Pre Arrival Price $160.00
Another inexpensive Grand Cru. 9 available.
John Gilman: This is a brilliant bottle of Charmes-Chambertin in the making. The superb nose wafts from the glass in a blend of red and black cherries, grilled meat, herb tones, coffee, a very complex base of soil, vinesmoke and a nice touch of cinnamon in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and nascently complex, with a sappy core of fruit, superb focus and grip and a very long, well-balanced and tangy finish that closes with suave tannins and beautiful precision. Gorgeous Charmes. 2020-2060. 94 Points
2010 Corton Rouge Grand Cru
Normal Price $137.95
Pre Arrival Price $117.00
The rating for this wine has also been increased. Just 14 bottles left.
John Gilman: The 2010 Bourée Corton "Renardes" may be labeled simply at Corton tout court, as that is how it is stamped on the barrels in the cellar, but it will be the sole Corton from Maison Bourée in 2010, so whichever way it is labeled, it will be worth a special effort to find, as this is a beautiful wine in the making. In March, it was showing all of the inherent potential I found in it last July, jumping from the glass in a deep and complex blend of cherries, strawberries, orange zest, incipient notes of sous bois, coffee, gamebirds and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very, very pure on the attack, with a soil-driven personality, ripe, suave tannins and outstanding length and grip on the beautifully focused, deep and intensely-flavored finish. Quintessential young Corton! 2022-2065+. 94 Points
2010 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru
Normal Price $217.95
Pre Arrival Price $184.95
John Gilman: There is only a single barrel of Corton-Charlemagne in the Pierre Bourée cellars this year, which Monsieur Vallet opined "was significantly better than no barrels." This is a dynamite example in the making and has to be one of the great sleepers of the vintage, as it soars from the glass in a closed, but compelling mélange of pink grapefruit, apple, lemon, stony minerality anda deft framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at thecore, with a powerful personality, superb cut and grip and outstanding length on the young and soil-driven finish. This is an absolutely classic bottle of young Corton-Charlemagne. 94+ Points
