Bouchard is in the fortunate position of having vines at all heights on the slope of this great vineyard. That gives a complete picture of the richness of the wines, the open fruitiness of this grand cru. Yellow-fruit flavors are accented by wood and spice. The wine also has good acidity, and fine structure for aging. Imported by Clicquot Inc.
