Bouchard Aîné & Fils Bourgogne Pinot Noir

Bouchard Aîné & Fils Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2016

Burgundy, FranceSince 1750 has to be worth something, and this pinot noir from Bouchard Ainé & Fils is a breath of fresh air. The nose is earthy with subtle mushroom, red fruit nuances. The attack is dry with round, light tannins and light black cherry. The grapes are a mix of fruit from the Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise, with a small amount from the Côte de Nuits. A simple, everyday French pinot but at $11.99, and under screwcap, it gets the job done. Perfect with a mushroom pizza.Tasted: 26 July 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 13.99 BCLS Producer: Bouchard Aîné & FilsDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
