About the Wine
This lovely red wine from Bouchard Aîné & Fils is produced in the Bourgogne area of Burgundy. Available in 75cl bottles, imported by FGV Boisset. Bouchard Aîné & Fils Bourgogne Pinot Noir is a delicious wine, made from Chardonnay grapes. This cork closed wine is created with added sulphites. The wine is one of a growing number in our list that can be enjoyed by vegan drinkers. Fresh, savoury, berry-fruit flavours that are excellent with light game, rich chicken and pork dishes.
A temperamental thin skinned grape and difficult to grow, when produced of any quality it demands high prices. The thin skin means it's very light in colour body and tannin, it characteristically has searing acidity and full lingering flavours of raspberry, strawberry, cherry, violets and sweet spice.
Most of France enjoyed a long, glorious warm summer, which set wineries up for a great 2018 vintage. A welcome relief from the previous one which was the smallest since World War II.Explore France
