75cl * 12% ABV * Burgundy, France
Founded in 1731, Bouchard's is one of the oldest and largest estates in Burgundy. As well as having 30 acres of Grand Cru vineyards to their name, they buy in fruit from the smallholders across Chorey, Monthelie and Pernaud-Vergelesses in order to make good value negociant wine. All cherry pips and fragrant wild herbs, this is fresh and light on its feet, and its delicacy would befit a spread if cold cuts and pates. Drink to 2022.
