Jean Bouchard Savigny-Les-Beaune Premier Cru Aux Gravains

Jean Bouchard Savigny-Les-Beaune Premier Cru Aux Gravains

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.

Hailing from the Côte de Beaune region, Savigny-Les-Beaune is an old, typically Burgundian winegrowing village located just a stone’s throw north of Beaune. The soil is gravelly and composed of calcareous clay. The vines grow on slopes that face east/southeast. 

Vinification takes place in temperature-controlled open vats (28/30°C) with regular punching of the cap followed by 14 to 16 months ageing in oak barrels with at most 30% new oak. 

Tasting Notes

Appearance: Beautiful deep red with ruby coloured highlights.

Nose:  Exudes scents of red stone fruit (sour cherry, black cherry), which are subtly enhanced by notes of mild spices (cinnamon, liquorice) and a ripe, savoury meatiness.

Palate: Starts off with lovely body and flavours reminiscent of the red fruit perceived on the nose with some hints of venison and a slightly spicy finish. Mature, and with soft tannins.

Food Matching

Try this wine with choice cuts of red meat such as rosemary-scented lamb shank, roast beef with shallots, or chicken in a cream and mushroom sauce. For cheese, opt for a Brillat-Savarin, Tomme de Savoie or a Lancashire.
