Fruity and well-rounded

With its brick robe with garnet reflections, this wine offers a nose with notes of cherry syrup, blackberry coulis, fresh juniper tip. On the palate, it presents a good balance, full-bodied, vinous on dense and tight tannins. Final tense with mocha notes.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

    Nowadays, four of the five original towers of the castle and some parts of the rampart are still standing outside. The whole monument is classed as historical monument since 1937.
    Deeply buried, the underground cellars are going across the whole property. It offers ideal and natural conservations conditions to the vintages Bouchard Père & Fils.
    Up to 10 meters of depth, the wines are aging gracefully. Amongst them, a unique collection of nearly 2000 bottles of 19th century. This historical heritage is priceless.
