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.

Features as one of the Top 15 Négociants & Cooperatives in Tim Atkin's Burgundy 2022 Special Report.

What the critics say:

96/100Charles Curtis MW, Decanter

"The Bouchard Corton Charlemagne reflects the vintage in an impressive way—it is a powerful wine, impressively substantial, long and almost fat in the mouth. Yet there is also an elegance and finesse to the wine that brings it into dynamic equilibrium, with aromas of ripe apple, apricot and hazelnuts and accents of hawthorn and hay. The grapes come from the domaine's superb four-hectare holding at the top of the slope, where recent studies with Françoise Vannier confirm 50 – 60 cm of yellow marl and limestone pebbles above the bedrock, explaining the delightful fresh acidity even in a warm year, such as 2022."

96/100Christy Canterbury MW, Tim Atkin

"This is an incredible plot of 4 hectares at the top of the hill, right up there with the breezy winds that descend from the north. The nose is spectacular with rose hips, peaches, rising bread dough and toasted almonds. Sweet yellow plums and scents of rain drops hitting warm stones mix in on the palate, too. The harmony is divine already, and the liveliness is eye opening."

93-95/100Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

"The Bouchard holding in Le Corton is made up of white marl on top of limestone slabs, and protected by the forest from the evening sun. Pale lemon and lime. The nose is slightly backward, delicate little flowers, but with the correct stony, almost gravelly aspect. Some riper fruit notes putting their heads above the parapet. A significant saline character too, behind. Drink from 2030-2038. Tasted: October 2023. ****"

About Bouchard Père & Fils

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’.
