Founded in 1731 in Beaune by Michel Bouchard, Bouchard P�re & Fils, is one of the oldest wine estates in Burgundy, perpetuating tradition for over 280 years and 9 generations.,,"I tasted a fine range of 2011s at Bouchard Pere & Fils. The wines here have become more refined since they began fermenting and aging them in the new winery on the outskirts of Beaune with the 2005 vintage."� Bruce Sanderson,,"The style of wine from 2011 depends on the work you did in the vineyards," said Christophe Bouchard, the firm's managing director. "If you organized the harvest according to maturity, parcel by parcel, you got good phenolic maturity and ripe fruit.",,87-90 Points Stephen Tanzer "Good full, deep red. Deep black cherry, licorice, gingerbread, leather and earth on the nose, lifted by a whiff of orange zest. Ripe, lush and fine-grained; more accessible today than the Monthelie wines. Musky redcurrant and spice flavors are supported by decent ripe acidity. Finishes broad but not at all dry, with an enticing return of fruit and good lift.",,87-90 Wine Spectator "The Beaune du Ch�teau comprises seven different premier cru parcels and generally represents very good value. Aromas of cherry, strawberry and spice introduce an elegant red, firm, with well-integrated tannins and fine length."
