"Marie-Anne Bouzereau-Gruère produces rich, opulent, fresh, tonic and precise wines with an impressive regularity.”
The soils of the Côte de Beaune are covered with limestone scree coming from the top of the hill, red silts deposited in the glacial era, and rocks resulting from the alteration of the underlying geological strata. Brown limestone and stony soils characterise the southern part of the Côte d'Or. At the top of slope, the soils are lean, very limestone, they enrich themselves in clay going down. There are three different hillsides: those of the Corton mountain, those of the Côte des Blancs and those of Chassagne, Santenay and Maranges.
A Passionate Lineage
Domaine Hubert Bouzereau-Gruère & Filles is based in Meursault. Hubert's two daughters took over the running of the estate in 2000, representing the eighth generation. Having trained with Jacques Carillon, one of Puligny's greatest growers, Marie-Anne concentrated her efforts on improving the quality of the vineyard. Her philosophy is that making outstanding wine is easier if you have a healthy vineyard. Her sister, Marie-Laure, has taken over the commercial side of the family business.
