Bouchard Pere et Fils
Beaune du Chateau Blanc, Premier Cru
Bouchard Père & Fils has been producing the Beaune du Château cuvée, an exclusivity of the House, since 1907.
This wine which is a blend of several Premier Cru vineyards, vinified separately, demonstrates the different facets of the terroir of Beaune.
White Beaune du Château comes from 4 parcels of Beaune Premier Cru chosen for their complementary qualities: Aigrots, Tuvilains, Sizies and Sur les Grèves.
The grapes from each "climat" are vinified separately before blending, in order to preserve the character of each "terrroir".
TASTING NOTES: Pale gold/ gold colour 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.
FOOD/WINE PAIRING: Fine cooked meats, meat pies, warm pâté, snails.
SERVING TEMPERATURE: Between 12°C to 14°C
AGEING POTENTIAL: 5-10 years
HARVEST: manual, in small cases of 13 kg. Careful manual sorting of each grape.
VINIFICATION: The pressing takes place in two phases: evacuation of the first juice, then pressing in two-hourly cycles.

AGEING: The cellars of the Bastions of the ancient Château de Beaune offer natural ambient conditions that are perfectly adapted to ageing the Premiers Crus.
