The Winemaker for Bouchon has long sought a range of premium varietal wines with a distinctive identity. From vineyards in specific micro-climates with soils of outstanding quality, he has been able to secure the high-quality grapes needed to create such a wine. These are full-flavored wines which complement the flavors of many foods but which, on their own, communicate the fruity, forward flavors that are the hallmark of the best California wines. The California climate is so temperate and so well suited to growing wine grapes that flavors develop fully, and the Bouchon varietals take full advantage of this abundance of flavor. Winemaking follows the traditional model, from careful selection of grapes through gentle pressing and meticulous controlled-temperature vinification and aging.
