Alain Burguet Mes Favorites Vieilles Vignes Gevrey Chambertin 2009
Burguet's 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Mes Favorites Vieilles Vignes is a dark, inward wine. Deep layers of minerality add to the sensation of thrust and drive on the finish. The Vieilles Vignes is a selection of 70+ year old vines across 18 different parcels with average yields well below 30 hectoliters per hectare. Alain was born in 1950 to Yvon Burguet, a tâcheron for Domaine Tortochot who also worked his own vines in Gevrey. He was a tough father, and Alain and his brother, Gilles, were expected to work in the vines at a young age on their days off from school. Alain remembers being ten years old and carrying a bucket of grapes at harvest that must have weighed as much as he did. By age 14, the boys were deemed finished with school and they began to work full-time in the vines of Gevrey under their father’s strict direction.
