Today the Burgundian wine domaine of Bouchard Pere et Fils can trace its origins back to 1731, though it is no longer family owned. In 1995 the Champagne house Joseph Henriot acquired the company and quality has risen as a consequence. Bouchard is led by Stéphane Follin Arbelet, while the wines are made by Philippe Prost - who has been with the company since 1978. An impressive gravity-flow winery on the Route de Savigny, the Cuvérie St Vincent, was completed in 2005 and enables them to process all their wines with optimum efficiency. Bouchard’s total holdings comprise 130 hectares, including 12ha of grand crus and 74ha of premier crus, which makes them the largest vineyard owners in the Côte d’Or.
What The Critics Say
91-93/100 and rated Outstanding Top Value in Burghound, Allen Meadows
"Good freshness and verve to the well-detailed medium-bodied flavors that exhibit a subtle minerality on the sappy, textured and beautifully complex finish. This should amply reward mid-term cellaring and overall, it is really quite impressive as about the only nit is a hint of backend warmth. Recommended." Drink 2022+
88-90/100 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
"Good full red. Offers distinctly darker fruit aromas than the villages Savigny, along with menthol and pepper accents. Then softer but more concentrated on the palate, with flavors of blackberry, menthol and licorice. Finishes spicy and firmly tannic. The yield was just under 35 hectoliters per hectare here, according to winemaker Frédéric Weber but just 5 in 2016 owing to the terrible late-April frost."
