|Producer||Domaine Hubert Bouzereau-Gruere et Filles|
Domaine Hubert Bouzereau Gruère is a family business, 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-MAAnne 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 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.
Beautiful, brilliant color. The nose is discreet with notes of grapefruit and young, green lemon. The vivacity of the citrus is also present on the palate and blends perfectly with the woodsy foundation of this wine. -Winemaker’s Notes
Wine Advocate (WA)
The 2016 Meursault Limouzin is showing well from bottle, wafting from the glass with pretty aromas of grapefruit, citrus blossom and crisp white peach, with hints of honey on the upper register. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, glossy and textural, with a rich, gourmand profile that’s tempered by notably tangy, incisive acids. While this is marked by the frost—which dictates its alliance of atypical concentration with brisk acids—the overall outcome is quite successful.
