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.
(Note: The Teuron's vineyard wine from Bouchard's competitor Louis Jadot is called Theurons, with an "h").
What The Critics Say
89-91/100 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
"(20 hectoliters per hectare produced, with the bottom of the parcel doing better than the top): Dark red with ruby highlights. Sexy aromas of redcurrant, minerals and leather. Then youthfully clenched and tightly wound but not dry, with its medicinal cherry and licorice flavors joined on the end by a note of dark chocolate. The slightly tough tannins will require at least a few years of bottle aging upon release. In its wildness and structure, this wine reminded me of a Gevrey-Chambertin, as the Teurons example from Domaine Albert Morot has done for years."
16/20 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming
"Better ripeness than their Beaune du Château, with juicy redcurrant and raspberry aromas. Simple palate, semi-firm tannin, moderate length. (RH)." Drink 2019 - 2029
