    A superbly elegant red berry fruit nose that offers really striking depth and is the most complex among this group of Beaune 1ers is followed by detailed, minerally and utterly delicious yet entirely serious middle weight flavors that display an intense minerality on the perfectly balanced, long and harmonious finish. Indeed the harmony of this wine is such that I would describe it as having a Zen-like poise.

    Good deep red-ruby. Expressive aromas of strawberry, redcurrant, minerals, tobacco and earth. Very rich, pliant and sweet, with deep redcurrant and tobacco flavors lingering impressively on the back end. This offers ideal ripeness, as there are neither the slightly dry notes of hail-affected Cote de Beaune wines nor the coolness of fruit that did not ripen properly.

Eighty-six hectares of grand and premier cru vineyards. One hundred thirty total hectares in the Cote d'Or. Eighty crus produced each vintage. Two hundred seventy-five years of history. Bouchard Père et Fils is truly an institution in Beaune. The Maison was founded by father and son Michel and Joseph Bouchard in 1731, and the family wine merchant business has grown steadily ever since, taking any opportunity to add to its vineyard holdings along the way. Not to be completely overshadowed by its wines, Bouchard conducts business in the very center of Beaune in the old Chateau de Beaune, whose storied past rivals that of the Maison. In 1995, the Champagne family of Joseph Henriot took control of Bouchard, resulting in improvements in quality, not to mention the addition of more top-level vineyard sites. Reds of particular interest include the flagship Beaune Grèves Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus and the Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. As for whites, the Meursault Genevrières, Meursault Perrières, Chevalier-Montrachet and Montrachet are all great interpreters of their particular sites, exhibiting the many nuances of grand and premier cru Chardonnay.
