A beautiful Premiur Cru Volnay, from a monopole vineyard exclusive to Bouchard. The Fremiets lies on the mid-slope with a south-east aspect, a site where the presence of iron in the soil creates a slightly more fleshy and structured expression of the otherwise elegant Volnay style. Within this terroir lies the walled vineyard of the Clos de La Rougeotte, named for the Autumn leaves which appear earlier in this cloister than elsewhere. A distinctive expression of Volnay from a superb year, the Clos de la Rougeotte is one to collect.

Its Origins

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.
