Bouchard Père et Fils Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru, 2012, Burgundy, France
WHAT IT GOES WITH
This wine is an excellent companion for seafood, especially shellfish, but it also matches any creamy taste of texture well. Consider pairing it with a rich dessert cheeseboard.
ABOUT THE VINEYARD
The story of Maison Bouchard dates back to the early 18th Century. Michel Bouchard was a cloth merchant that invested in a Burgandy estate, while his son Joseph recognised the potential for winemaking within the territory. After the French revolution, when vineyards were available at reasonable prices, Joseph Bouchard seized his opportunity and began a legacy that endures today. Eventually extending their coverage to over 50 hectares, Maison Bouchard was purchased by Joseph Henriot in 2015 - though the production of wine carrying the Bouchard name remains as consistently superior as ever.
