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
90-92/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Neal Martin
"The 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Clos Saint-Landry Blanc, a monopole belonging to Bouchard, has an expressive yellow flower and nectarine-scented bouquet that is nicely defined. The palate is fresh on the entry with a fine bead of acidity, just a hint of edginess here thanks to the wise decision to pick this first. Brimming with tension and terroir expression, I would highly recommend this white Beaune."
90/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows
"A discreet application of oak sets off the exotic aromas of white peach, orange peel and a hint of rose petal. The dense and brooding flavors also possess fine mid-palate density as the abundant dry extract imparts a lush mouth feel to the saline-inflected finish." Drink 2021+
17.5/20 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming
"Mango and pineapple fruit – a big shift from their Beaune du Château, with better integration of oak, and long layers of flavour on the finish. Rich, bold and expressive with the concentration to last years. (RH)."Drink 2018 - 2030
