Domaine Hubert Bouzereau Gruère is named for the union of two old winemaking families: Hubert Bouzereau in Meursault, and Marie-France Gruère in Chassagne-Montrachet.  Hubert Bouzereau is the 7th generation of winemakers of his family and it was in 1970 that he established his own estate with his wife Marie-France.  Their daughters have since joined them in the family business: Marie-Laure has been working at the Domaine since 1995 and Marie-Anne since 1999. 

In 2001, the daughters partnered with their father and created Domaine Hubert Bouzereau Gruère et Filles.  They are at the head of a 10-hectare estate spread out over 6 communes in the Côte de Beaune, the production of which is three quarters white wine and one quarter red.  The Domaine is quite varied and is composed of Grand Cru, Premiers Crus, Villages, and Regional appellations.  Marie-Laure is in charge of administrative duties and marketing, as well as hospitality.  Marie-Anne is responsible for vinification, order preparation, receiving clients, and some aspects of marketing.  In addition, both women work an equal amount of time in the vineyards. Hubert is a passionate winemaker, and has transferred his love for and knowledge of the craft of winemaking to his daughters.  To this day, he continues to work with great pleasure and care among his vines and in the cellars.

Marie-Laure and Marie-Anne stress the importance of the heritage of old vines which constitute the estate.  They continually strive to produce well-balanced wines with beautiful minerality and aromatic purity, as well as good acidity in order to lend the wines great finesse.

The two sisters work with the same spirit and respect for tradition and terroir, just like their father.

Tasting Notes

Brilliant yellow in the glass.  The nose shows pronounced aromas of pink grapefruit and candied lemon peel.  The palate is vibrant and fresh, echoing the citrus notes from the nose along with stone fruit, white flowers and some wooded notes from oak ageing.  A fine and well balanced Meursault with excellent texture and length.  

Method

This is a wine made from Chardonnay from a an exceptional parcel located below Meursault Genevrières.  The soil is limestone clay.   The vines were planted in 1969.  The grapes are hand harvested, pressed with a pneumatique press and wild yeast fermented followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine ages in oak barrels, 25% new, sur lies with regular batonnage.  Bottled at the domaine.
