Winemaker 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

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
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.

Bouchard Aine & Fils, Cote de Nuits, Cote d'Or, Burgundy, France
Image of winery

When Michel Bouchard founded his wine merchant business in Beaune in 1750 with his elder son, he wanted to settle in the heart of Burgundy and its vines. Being close to the vine-growers, he created a unique expertise in selection, wine making and aging with one mission:

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.

Cote de Nuits

View all wine

The origin of perhaps the world’s very finest Pinot noir, Côte de Nuits includes the famous wine villages of Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée, Flagey-Echezeaux, and Nuits-St-Georges. Fine whites from Chardonnay are certainly to be found but in the Côte de Nuits, but Pinot noir is really the star. The little village of Nuits-St-Georges in its southern end gave the region its name: Côte de Nuits. The city of Dijon marks its northern border.

Pinot Noir

View all wine

One of the most difficult yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is commonly referred to by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape.” However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. More reflective than most varieties of the land on which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality, and demands care in the vineyard and lots of attention in the winery. It is an important component of Champagne and the only variety permitted in red Burgundy. Pinot Noir enjoys immense popularity internationally, most notably in Oregon, California, and New Zealand.

In the Glass

Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna. Its mild mannered tannins don’t fight with spicy food, and give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry—chicken, quail, and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, it can even match with heavier fare. Pinot Noir is also very vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

Pinot Noir is dangerously drinkable, highly addictive, and has a bad habit of emptying the wallet. Look for affordable but still delicious examples from Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (as Pinot Nero), Chile, New Zealand, and France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions.
