Founded in 1731, the venerable house of Bouchard Pere & Fils manages 300 acres of vineyards of which 100 acres are classified as 1er Cru with 30 acres classified as Grand Cru. Among all these vineyard holdings there are as many as 70 wines produced. Bernard Bouchard purchased the Château de Beaune in 1820, a former royal fortress constructed in the 15th century by King Louis XI. Bouchard's expansive, deep cellars sit below. Beaune du Chateau is a blend of 17 different Beaune Premier Cru sites (recall a third of Bouchard’s holding are 1er Cru!) which includes sought after vineyards such as Bressandes, Cent Vignes, Clos du Roi , Greves, and Toussaints. Quintessentially Beaune, this is an exceptional value from one of Burgundy's most historical producers. Bouchard delivered an incredible performance in 2016.

Exuding both ripe cherry fruit flavor and a smoky overtone, this red is distinctive and vibrant. Earth, spice and mineral elements add depth and the firm, yet integrated structure gives this some grip. Fine length. Best from 2020 through 2033. 1,500 cases imported.
