Burghound | 90-92

This is more expressive than it usually is at this early stage with attractively spiced aromas of plum, earth and a certain sauvage character that continues onto the mouth coating, robust and well muscled flavors that possess well-integrated if not invisible tannins on the delicious, powerful and quite serious finish that offer outstanding length. This is not an elegant wine but it's not rustic either and it's worth a look if you enjoy punchy, balanced and complex no-nonsense burgs.

About This Producer


The domaine was "officially" founded in 1999 when the Boisset family's 91 acres were united under one name. Their original vineyard holding, Les Evocelles, was purchased in 1964 by Jean-Claude Boisset. The family's 91 acres are in 30 appellations in the Cote d'Or, with the latest purchase being the 24-acre premier cru Blanc de Vougeot Monopole. Other vineyards of note include Bonnes Mares, Corton Charlemagne, and Clos de Vougeot. Pascal Marchand is the winemaker, and the purity of the Burgundian terroir is due to his diligence at preserving the natural farming and biodynamic techniques of generations past.
