Bouchard Pere & Fils Chassagne Montrachet 2016
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
|Brand||Bouchard Pere & Fils|
Rich aromas of red and black fruit. A fleshy, structured yet totally elegant wine. Good ageing potential. Pair with grilled and roasted meat, medium-flavored cheeses. The 2016’s are back to the great “acid backbone” of the 2014’s.
On the south of the Côte de Beaune, the village of Chassagne became Chassagne-Montrachet in the 19th century, thereby benefiting from the notoriety of the mythical Montrachet Grand Cru.
Facing east – southeast, the vineyards are planted with both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, which produces some of the finest white wines in the world.
Founded in 1731, Maison Bouchard Père & Fils is one of Burgundy’s oldest wine merchant houses. Over the centuries, the House has been devoted to acquiring highly renowned parcels, in order to build a prestigious domaine: 130 hectares of Crus. The famed vineyards include: Beaune Grèves Vigne de L’Enfant Jésus, Chevalier-Montrachet, Montrachet, Corton, Corton-Charlemagne, Bonnes-Mares and Clos Vougeot to name a few.
Creamy, setting the stage for peach, apple, lemon, pastry and baking spice flavors. Good cut keeps this balanced and a lingering finish echoes citrus and spice notes. Drink now through 2024. 150 cases imported.
