Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Deep ruby red in color with tinges of violet. Elegant and complex with dominant aromas of jammy red fruit, typical of this varietal. The attack is bold with pure fruit and hints of violet and spice (cinnamon) on the palate. There are also notes of toast, blackberry and blackcurrant. Full, well-rounded tannins give nice length. This wine has a promising future.

Pair with game and strong cheese.

Critical Acclaim

"Perhaps the best Bouchard Aine wine we've ever tasted, this puts all its cards on the table with complete confidence the moment it's opened: a grand trumpet blare of foresty scents, strawberries, rhubarb and Bretty funk. New oak plays a major role, but there is so much detail to the wine's flavor that it's just one more layer. A rich caress of dark fruit and earthy tannins make this delicious to drink now and over the next several years. It is, perhaps, too open for the long term."

Always search for perfection in quality, authenticity in style and prestige in the name.

For over two centuries, this has been the vision of the House of Bouchard Ainé & Fils.
