Following in the footsteps of the great names of the Côte de Nuits, the Domaine Alain Burguet is quietly but not without talent. In the early 90s, the estate was one of the appellation's driving forces; since 2012, led by his sons Eric and Jean-Luc, it has gone from strength to strength.
Hand-harvesting, a heritage of old vines concentrated on just 8 hectares of Pinot Noir, ageing with little new wood: tradition is preserved to serve deep, elegant wines.
