"The 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Blanchots Dessous offers up a sun-kissed bouquet of peach, pear, fresh pineapple, nutmeg, honeycomb and spice that's typical of this site, with a touch of struck match on the upper register. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, rich and flavorful, and although this Chassagne is still a bit tight-knit after its bottling, it's clear that this will be a dramatic, textural wine in a few years. A very promising white Burgundy to follow over the next decade or more."

Product Description:

"This plot, planted in 1972, is stunningly situated adjacent to Criots Bâtards Montrachet! The noble terroir is beautifully expressed in this wine. Green reflections, with fragrances of white flowers, honeysuckle, and chamomile. The palate expresses white peach. Ripe fruit notes and a lovely minerality give this wine exquisite balance.

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. Today, two of their daughters have 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. Marie-Laure and Marie-Anne represent the 8th generation of the winemaking family. 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. The wines of the Domaine are regularly cited in wine guides such as Guide Hachette, Guide Bettane & Desseauve, Bourgogne Aujourd’hui, la Revue des Vins de France, etc.

Marie-Laure et 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." -Importer
