Bouchard Aine & Fils Gevrey-Chambertin 2013
Distinguished and complex, slightly woody, with hints of vanilla and red and black fruits (blackcurrants, raspberries and Morello cherries). Animal notes of musk and fur. Full-bodied, with ageing potential, long and persistent. As the wine develops the presence of red fruits is confirmed, with a sub-structure of liquorice. Gevrey wines are noted for their strong character and intense, expressive aromas - powerful but extremely mellow.
When Michel Bouchard founded his wine merchant business in Beaune in 1750 with his elder son, he wanted to settle in the heart of Burgundy and its vines. Being close to the vine-growers, he created a unique expertise in selection, wine making and aging with one mission: Always search for perfection in quality, authenticity in style and prestige in the name. For over two centuries, this has been the vision of the House of Bouchard Aine & Fils.
