Winemaking

Manual harvest is small cases, followed by careful manual sorting of each grape. The wine is vinified separately and age for 14 months in 30% new oak.

Tasting Notes

Nice dark garnet color with brown to mauve shades. Complex bouquet associating perfumes of jammy red fruit, fig, peony with a hint of chocolate. Harmonious and deep palate, with a beautiful maturity and dense but fine tannins. An attractive 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.
