Winemaker Notes

"Bright, pure aromas of lemon, lime, minerals and ginger. At once sweet and precise, with lovely sugar/acid snap to the flavors of citrus peel, spices and flowers. A very perfumed and crisp wine with a long, aromatic, firmly stony aftertaste. Classic rather than exotic: I love this wine's rising finish."
-International Wine Cellar 92-94

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
BH 93
Burghound.com
A very deftly wooded nose, where it's clear that the oak treatment will be rapidly integrated, sets off pure, expressive and equally exotic fruit aromas that are even spicier while serving as a dramatic introduction for the detailed, focused and almost painfully intense flavors that possess a tangy and driving finish that does a slow build from the mid-palate on back. A classic Genevrières that should age beautifully.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Bouchard’s 2006 Meursault Genevrieres smells of coconut, litchi, candied lime, and brown spices. Combining doughy substantiality, polished richness of texture and luscious citricity, it finishes with formidable persistence of exotic, extroverted spice, citrus, and tropical fruits. I suspect it might evolve more rapidly than the corresponding Gouttes d’Or. 92-93 points

Wine Spectator
Oak spice, buttery pastry, hazelnut and lime combine to seduce the palate in this alluring white, which is seamless from start to finish and leaves a lush impression with vanilla tones. Drink now through 2016. 180 cases imported.

Bouchard Pere & Fils
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 vines in the heart of the Côte d’Or - 12 classified as Grand Crus and 74 as Premier Crus. The famed vineyards include: Beaune Gréves Vigne de L’Enfant Jésus, Chevalier-Montrachet, Montrachet, Corton, Corton-Charlemagne, Bonnes-Mares and Clos Vougeot to name a few.

In 1995 this exceptional collection was purchased by Joseph Henriot, and is today part of Maisons & Domaines Henriot. Maison Bouchard Père & Fils has invested in a modern cuverie enabling the vinification of more than 100 different crus. From the vine to bottle, the process is handled with meticulous care, to ensure the most faithful expression of each terroir.

Installed since the beginning of the 19th century on the site of the ancient Château de Beaune, Maison Bouchard Père & Fils uses the underground galleries and bastions of this fortress built by Luis XI, 10 meters below ground, for the slow maturing of its wines under optimal conditions. Millions of bottles, including a rare collection of prephylloxera wines rest in the cellars today protected by 7 meter thick walls.

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.
