Description

A blend of 14 Beaune Premier Cru sites that are owned by Bouchard. Coming from the 2009 vintage the quality is outstanding and the wine is still in its youth.

Bouchard are owned by the Henriot empire and are encouraged and expected to achieve quality from top to bottom. They own parcels in some of the great estate vineyard in Burgundy and despite their size, they never fail to make a wine of charm and depth. These are not to be missed!

Burgundy

The classic part of Burgundy known as the Cote D’Or (the slope of gold) is essentially one vineyard that is 60km long and maybe 5km at its widest. From this limestone ridge some of the most complex, long-lived and aromatic wines are produced from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Cistercian monks who owned the land codified the entire region and so each small plot has a name.

Beaune

Historically an important trading town with large vineyard area, numerous Premier Cru sites but not one Grand Cru. The wines are sturdy, if a bit clumsy, in a soft and pretty style.

Pinot Noir 

This is the most elusive grape. It is relatively early ripening and extremely sensitive to terroir. Its perfect place on earth is the Cote d’Or in Burgundy. So haunting are great red Burgundy’s charms that growers everywhere try to emulate them. Pinot Noir is not just a one trick pony, it can make great reds, rosé, sparkling and even sweet wines, whites on occasion and I’ve tasted a decent fortified Pinot Noir too.
