Founded in 1731 in Beaune by Michel Bouchard, Bouchard Père & Fils is one of the oldest wine estates in Burgundy and one of the largest vineyard owners in the Cote D’or. The first vineyards were purchased in Volnay “Les Caillerets” in 1775, and so began a long history of gathering fine ‘terroirs’. Firstly in the Côte de Beaune, which is still home to the majority of Bouchard Père & Fils holdings, and then in the Côte de Nuits.
More recently Bouchard has really upped its game, producing wines that have wowed the keenest of Burgundy critics, including Neal Martin & Allen Meadows (Burghound). Now batting in the big leagues, we’re delighted to have access to these wines.
The Bouchard range encompasses a wide range of wines, including Montrachet, Corton-Charlemagne, Beaune Grèves Vignes de l’Enfant Jésus, Bonnes-Mares and Meursault Perrière. The domain in total runes to 130 hectares, 12 of which are classified Grand Cru and 74 Premier Cru, including four monopoles.
