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
88-90/100 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
"(these estate vines average 30 years of age; 20% vendange entier): Bright, full red-ruby. Superripe aromas of kirsch and licorice convey a liqueur-like quality. Sweet, plush and exotic, with its black cherry fruit complemented by a chocolatey quality and lifted by spicy high notes. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins. The most extreme sample to this point among these 2015s."
Burghound, Allen Meadows
"This is at once more aromatically complex and elegant with its notably floral array of earth, spice and red and dark currant scents that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is good vibrancy to the relatively round and utterly delicious flavors that deliver excellent depth on the balanced finish. This is more refined than usual and offers terrific quality for the appellation." Drink 2020+
16.5/20 Jancis Robinson MW
"Black cherry, fine but fibrous tannin which gives quite a grip to the finish. Even so, worth a few years in bottle. (RH)" Drink 2018 - 2022
