Vinification Details

  • Hand-harvested and pressed in bunches for a long time in order to get a juice of perfect quality. The must was cooled down and put to settle for 24 to 48 hours. Once we got rid of juice unwanted particles, it was brought back to a temperature of 16-18°C to allow beginning of alcoholic fermentation. We paid attention in setting the temperature in order to bring out the fruitiness and freshness of Chardonnay. Aged on fine lees for 9 months partly in stainless steel tanks, partly in oak barrels.

History

  • The wines made by our House bear the stamp of Bouchard Aîné & Fils in its signature. A name of prestige, synonymous with tradition, excellence and mastery since 1750. Our complete range of wine carries the signature of Bouchard Aîné & Fils, which is known across the four corners of the globe, resonating three centuries of history in the Great Wines of Burgundy.
