Jean Bouchard Mercurey Rouge

Jean Bouchard Mercurey Rouge

Jean Bouchard is a Burgundy house with a long standing history. The philosophy of the House of Jean Bouchard rests on four strong values; the family, the quality, the durability and sharing.

Located at the heart of the Côte Chalonnaise, Mercurey is one of the largest viticultural appellations in Burgundy with its 650 ha of vineyards, 85 “village” appellations and 32 Premiers Crus.

The exposure of Mercurey’s vineyards ranges from east to south and the stony brown soil is well drained and rich in clay, overlying hard Oxfordian limestone formations. 

Vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks with temperatures maintained at 20°C in order to preserve the freshness and fruitiness of the varietal. 20% of the cuvée was aged in 3-year-old oak barrels. 

Tasting Notes

Beautiful deep ruby red in colour. Stone fruit aromas, with black cherry and a touch of spice (nutmeg and black pepper). Fairly full bodied, with black cherry, prune and roast meat flavours. Slightly toasted flavours on the finish with an elegant, mellow aftertaste.

Food Matching

This wine showcases nice cuts of beef such as a steak with béarnaise sauce, or braised or stewed lamb. It is equally at home with chicken or pork with prunes or sauté of turkey with paprika. As for cheese, it goes equally well with a creamy Brillat-Savarin as with a 12-month-old Comté.
