BRANDBouchard Père & Fils
The 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Du Château Blanc inexplicably did not finish its malolactic until June or July. It has a tightly wound, slightly resinous bouquet. The palate is well balanced with fine tannin, crisp acidity, quite minerally in the mouth with a brisk, slightly oaky finish that lingers. What a lovely white Burgundy!
A blend of five 1er Crus that include Tuvilains, Aigrots and Sizies among several others that total over 10 ha; in 2016, the yield was only 15 hl/ha.
