Bouchard Père et Fils Santenay 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Dating from 1751, Bouchard Pere et Fils is the largest owner of grand and premier cru vineyards in Burgundy. Diverting from the Burgundian tradition of naming wines after vineyards and appellations, *Beaune du Chateau is the exclusive, proprietary wine made from grapes grown in Bouchard's Beaune premier cru vineyards*. This 2008 offers a fine, perfumed bouquet with a harmonious character and ripe, rich Pinot Noir fruit.

Bouchard Père et Fils:
Contrary to many wine growing regions, one of the particularities of Burgundy is the complete lack of the mixing of different grape varieties. There are two main varieties in Burgundy : Pinot Noir for the red wines; Chardonnay for the white wines.

The reputation of the Grands Vins fins de Bourgogne is based on two varieties alone : Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. As early as 1866, Dr Jules Guyot in his book on viticulture of the centre north of France, wrote that: " the essence of the fine wines of the Côte d'Or, is the grape variety, the Pineau Noir or Noirien for the red wines; the Pineau Blanc or Chardenet for the white wines ".

As it usually does, this offers another level of aromatic complexity with a highly spiced nose trimmed in a subtle touch of wood that does not interfere with the overall transparency of either the nose or the palate as this is pure, classy and refined. Moreover, the tannins are also more refined, which is unusual, and this completely stains the palate on the hugely long finish. A balanced, stylish and beguiling Bèze that is built to age, and improve, for up to two decades. Burghound.com, Issue Apr 1, 2009, Allen Meadows
