One of the best buys for the category in 2019, we have a few cases of this one available still and it recently got a nice score from Jasper Morris of Inside Burgundy. Champeau is one of the few Domaine wines from Bouree and is their best cru in 2019. Unheard of pricing for 2019 1er Cru Burgundy, we have the only bottles available in the USA right now.
As we have said in the past, Bouree is an excellent, classic producer. We offered many bottles of Pierre Bouree in the past as the Crus are exceptional values and more of an insider buy for Burgundy. We've enjoyed quite a few back vintages from this address dating back to the 60s and tasted with the family on multiple occasions in Burgundy. It's an address that holds a pretty substantial value considering some of their holdings, and the Champeaux has always been one of the most exciting wines from Bouree, which comes from old vines dating over 60 years old. 2019 is a very successful vintage for Bouree and is shaping up to be one of their best of all time. It is an excellent option for those looking for a lovely Premier Cru without a considerable price tag, and right now, we have the only bottles of 2019 Champeaux from Bouree, which in other vintages is going for well over $100. This is easily the best buy for Champeaux in 2019 at this low rate and one of the best ever from Bouree, making it a bottle not to miss.
Jasper Morris 90-93 points! "A domaine wine. Glowing mid purple, rather an elegant nose, though quite discreet, some floral touches to the pure red berry fruit. Medium weight, softly oaky, graceful, correct."
