Winemaking

Manual harvest is small cases, followed by manual sorting of each grape. The wine is aged for 13 months in 30% new oak.

Tasting Notes

Intense notes of black fruit blended with oaky touches and delicately spiced. Full and fleshy on the palate, the structure of this wine is based on elegant tannins. Very good ageing potential

Points of Distinction

  • Bouchard Père & Fils owns 1.08 hectares of this exceptional "terroir" where the ground is oolithic chalk (i.e. little balls the size of fish eggs formed by the concretion of chalk on hard stones)
  • Les Cailles is different from its neighbors, producing an elegant, feminine wine
