The A.O.C. wines from Bouchard Père et Fils are made from rigorously selected grapes and deserve a special mention, like this Bourgogne La Vignée Pinot Noir which is a harmonious blend of fruit and "terroir". Made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes from farmers who are committed to respecting strict quality criteria. The vineyards are all growing on limestone and clay soil and the winery passes on their expertise to ensure the grapes they receive meet their high standards. Grapes are received and gently pressed into vats for the alcoholic fermentation which takes 8 to 12 days. After this it is transferred to barrels and vats for malolactic fermentation and aging for 9 to 10 months. 10 to 15% goes to French oak barrels (for structure), the rest in stainless steel vats (to maintain purity of fruit). Bottled at 13%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Aromas of bright red fruit like cherries and raspberries. This is followed by delicate perfume aromas of violets and whiffs of earthy forest floor.

Palate: Bright with medium acidity, the entry greets you with fruit tones of cherries and blackberries and currants. Mid-palate reveals a softer, more delicate side to the wine. Elegant, round with a light to medium body weight.

Finish: Well integrated soft tannins with lingering earthy, tobacco spice notes.
