This stylish wine has a fine texture and firm tannins to balance the juicy berry fruits. A dry edge adds to the concentration of the wine, which is produced from 60-year-old vines.
  • Winemaking

    Vinification in stainless steel vats at 86°F for the semi-carbonic maceration. The wine then remains in the vats for 3 to 6 months.

  • Nose

    Straightforward and expressive, fruity and floral.

  • Palate

    Lively and flashy, this is a fresh, persistent wine made in the image of Bouchard Aîné & Fils using a Burgundy style which flavors structure and elegance over ethereal fruit.
