Winemaking

Manual harvest in small cases, vinified separately. Matured for 10 months in 15% new oak.

Tasting Notes

Pale gold_ gold color with green shades. The nose is made of white flesh fruit, candied citrus aromas with a hint of brioche and ginger bread. The mouth associates richness, subtle oak, taste of dried fruit. Pleasantly rich wine.

Points of Distinction

  • The grapes from each "climat" are vinified separately before blending, in order to preserve the character of each "terroir".
  • Bouchard Père & Fils has been producing the Beaune du Château cuvée, an exclusivity of the House, since 1907.
