Winemaker Notes

Nice dark garnet color with brown to mauve shades. Complex bouquet associating perfumes of jammy red fruit, fig, peony with a hint of chocolate. Harmonious and deep palate, with a beautiful maturity and dense but fine tannins. An attractive wine.

Pair with meat dishes in white sauce and poultry.

WS 92
Wine Spectator
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.

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Bouchard Père & Fils Beaune du Château Beaune Premier Cru is a lively, fine-drinking wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine is pretty and perky. Its aroma and flavors of fresh-cut red, ripe fruits should pair well with an oven-roasted chicken. (Tasted: March 14, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Generous amounts of wood and menthol do fight with the black pinot fruit liqueur-like aromas. This is exceptionally dense with impressive amounts of dry extract that impart a velvety mouth feel to the opulent finish where a hint of bitter cherry pit arises. This is also extremely ripe and while it's not jammy, it's close. I would suggest this more for those who enjoy super-rich and lavishly wooded burgundies and while it certainly has the material to age, it should drink well almost immediately.

While the city represents the epicenter of wine production in Burgundy, the term, “Beaune” also refers to the specific sub-appellation of the greater Côte de Beaune, whose vineyards climb up the pastoral slopes that border the city to its west. Originally founded as a Roman camp by Julius Caesar, the city of Beaune eventually became the seat of the dukes of Burgundy until the 13th century. Today it is home to top négociants such as Louis Jadot, Joseph Drouhin, Louis Latour, and Bouchard Père et Fils.

The appellation, dominated by Pinot noir plantings, represents a lovely and charming place to begin to understand red Burgundy. Its sandy soils create light and supple, floral driven Pinot noir. These wines are designed to be enjoyed within five to 10 years. The vineyards of Beaune span a broad swath of Premier Crus from Savigny-lès-Beaune to its border with Pommard.

Chardonnay acreage here has been increasing here in the more recent years.
