Domaine Huber Verdereau Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015


SKU 04283



Domaine Huber-Vedereau was founded by Thiébault Huber in 1994, but his family's history of winegrowing dates back to the 19th century in the Volnay region of Burgundy. Thiébault’s grandfather, Raoul Verdereau further developed the estate between 1928 and 1976. He split it between his two daughters, and Thiébault’s parents inherited three hectares. Since they did not live in Burgundy nor make wine at that time, they rented it out until 1994.  In the meantime, Thiébault had studied the restaurant business and the craft of being a sommelier at the Hotel Catering School in Strasbourg. In 1990, he decided to work towards taking over the family estate, and began his three year training at the Wine School of Beaune with his cousin Jean-Marc Bouley. Thiébault was then ready to create the next chapter in the family winemaking legacy with Domaine Huber-Verdereau. He had his first vintage in 1994.

Thiébault Huber began with the family’s 2.9 hectares, and now works 9.7 total hectares across 5 towns and 32 parcels (climats as they say in Burgundy). Half he owns, the other half he rents. In 2011, Thiébault started a small negociant business, which has allowed him to farm more appellations, such as Mercurey and Monthelie. Currently the Domaine bottles 16 whites, 12 reds and a Crémant from 16 different appellations in Burgundy. This Bourgogne Pinot Noir was raised in cement tank and fermented with natural yeasts. Vinified with vegan methods (so no egg whites used for fining) and lightly filtered, the wine finishes with modest alcohol and wonderful purity of fruit. The vines for this Bourgogne were planted in 1949-1955-1966-1997 and under 5000 bottles are produced.
