2017 is an excellent vintage for the classic style of producers like Pierre Bouree, and the Champareaux is one of the top 1er Cru Buys for Red Burgundy on the market right now. It's not common to find a top 1er from producers these days for less than $130, let alone $70 making this a deal not to pass up.
We have offered many bottles of Pierre Bouree in the past, and the Crus are exceptional values and more of an insider buy for Burgundy. We've enjoyed quite a few back vintages from this address to the 60s and tasted with the family on multiple occasions in Burgundy.
As mentioned, 2017 was an excellent vintage for this classic producer, making some very strong premier crus, and the Champeaux is at the top of the list. Sourced from 60 year old vines, this wine is more elegant and refined than usual and approachable now, which is ideal because many Burgundy wines can be a cellar project taking years to come around.
While not on the main stage of Burgundy, the wines from Pierre Bouree are fantastic buys that show off some of the great vineyards of Burgundy while not getting caught up in the current crazy pricing like many other addresses.
We feel it is essential to find producers with greater price-quality than those at the top so more people can enjoy these fantastic wines from one of the world's most significant regions. 2017 Champeaux from Pierre Bouree is an incredible buy for Red Burgundy right now, and with pricing going up everywhere, this one will surprise you while saving some money.
