Description

The name "La Mazière" comes from the latin word MACERIA that refers to an enclosure wall made of dry stones. A Côte de Nuits appellation which takes its name from the village of Fixin, which lies to the north of Gevrey-Chambertin. This appellation extends over 95 hectares, 22 hectares of which are classified as Premiers Crus, with only 2% producing white wines. Since 1750, Bouchard Ainé & Fils is devoted to the excellence and renown of the region's noble grapes. The 18th-century Hôtel du Conseiller du Roy in Beaune houses the cellars where is perpetuated, generation after generation, the tradition of quality, elegance and prestige in selecting and making fine Burgundy wines.

Please note that this is an imported wine and cannot legally be shipped to GA, IA, IL, IN, LA, ME, MI, MO, MT, OH, SD, VA or WV.

A very charming bouquet dominated by little fruits aromas : such as black cherry, blackberry and blueberry.
