Founded in 1731, Bouchard Pere & Fils stands among Burgundy’s oldest wine merchants and Cote d’Or’s largest landowners. Over the centuries, they’ve collected some seriously primo parcels for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay alike. Newer investments, like state-of-the-art winemaking facilities, kick up the quality even further. This pale gold beauty features a nose of white fruit and candied citrus with a hint of brioche. The plush palate is rich with dried fruit flavors and subtle oak spice flowing to a saline finish.
Part of the Bouchard range since 1907, this wine features 17 of the extensive lineup of Beaune premiers crus, grown on a mixture of soil types. Part of Frédéric Weber's skill lies in the blending of all these different cuvées to produce a wine that's textured, floral and sweet, with subtle reduction, some whole-bunch spice and a backdrop of 35% new wood.
