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 vineyards of the Hautes Côtes de Beaune are located on a plateau above the famed Côte de Beaune, at an altitude of between 300 and 400 metres.
The vines grow in calcareous clay soil (originating in the Jurassic period) and benefit from maximum exposure to the sun as the orientation of the slopes varies from south to east.
Vinification takes place in temperature-controlled vats at 28-30°C with punching of the cap, before being aged for 8 to 12 months in oak barrels.
Deep red tinged with ruby. Predominant aromas of red berries, with nuances of mild spices and some oak. Lovely structure with expressive tannins. Pure red fruit flavours with a generous mouthfeel.
This wine is a perfect match for Burgundian cuisine: beef bourguignon, tripe and chitterling sausage in Chablis, cottage pie with pink peppercorns, or with a platter of assorted deli meats (Serrano ham, duck rillettes, dry sausages). For cheese, try it with Cantal or artisanal mountain cheeses.
