Jean Bouchard Nuits St Georges Premier Cru

Jean Bouchard Nuits St Georges Premier Cru

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.

The village of Nuits-Saint-Georges, famous for its hospice and for its vineyards, is located at the heart of the Côte de Nuits. The Premier Cru vineyards are divided between Nuits-Saint-Georges (100.5 ha) and Prémeaux-Prissey (42.2 ha).

Brown limestone soil covers slopes with a Jurassic limestone base. The vines are planted on terraces. 

Aged in stainless steel to preserve the freshness and fruity flavours of the varietal and oak barrels (30 to 40% new oak) in our cellars for 8 to 12 months to lend structure and complexity to the wine. 

Tasting Notes

Appearance: Beautiful, brilliant deep ruby red in colour.

Nose: Fine and complex, starts off with delicate notes of oak followed by aromas of cherry and raspberry enhanced by a touch of bitter cocoa.

Palate:  Lovely tannic texture offers pleasing mouthfeel. This smooth, delightful wine offers nice density. It has delicious savoury notes balanced with ripe prune, cherry and black fruit flavours.

Food Matching

This Premier Cru is easily matched with all types of red meats such as thyme-scented lamb shanks with olives, game such as haunch of venison with porcini mushrooms, or stir-fried vegetables. Perfect with mature cheese such as Brie, Cheddar, Comté or Naroilles.
