2017 Meursault Bouchard Père et Fils Château de Beaune
In 1820 Bernard Bouchard purchased the Château de Beaune, a former royal fortress built in the 15th century by King Louis XI. Four of the five original towers of the fortress, as well as parts of the ramparts, still stand today and have featured on the list of historic monuments since 1937. The cellars run deep underground beneath the property providing ideal natural storage conditions for Bouchard Père & Fils’ fine wines. This is a delightful wine, rich and savoury with nutty, honeyed hints and buttery, vanilla spice from the oak.
