François and Pierre HURÉ
Georges Huré created the domaine in 1960. The name Huré Frères came out in 1971 when Georges passed on management of the domaine to his three sons – Jean-Marie, Marc and Raoul. Since 2008, the new generation represented by François and Pierre has been at the head of the estate. Previous experiences in Burgundy and around the world helped them to appreciate the traditional farming and respect for terroir of the old world as well as the efficient modern techniques of the new one. Both serve them to create the terroir-driven and focused cuvées that mark the Huré Frères style today.
The vines are farmed according to biodynamics principles and vineyard work is fine tuned to cater the needs of each individual parcel.
In the cellar they also work to bring the best out of each plot, using a mix of steel tanks, large oak foudres and small oak barrels. Fermentation is conducted using natural yeast and wines are kept on lees for long periods of time. Reserve wines are made out of an impressive Solera from 1982. Quite unusual for such a small estate.
“The wines are full of energy and structure. They’re, so far, still under radar but their complexity and gastronomic character is strengthening every year”
