Elegant with citrus and minerals, this special cuvee has been released by Bouchard since 1907. It is a blend of top 1er Cru sites (Aigrots, Tuvilains, Sizies and Sur les Grèves) all vinified seperately, then crafted as a true portrait of this most classic Chardonnay terroir. Such quality sources allow the concentration and ripeness to benefit from 9-10 months in oak, a small portion of which is new. At this price a harmonious and complete wine, and very serious value.

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.

What The Critics Say

90/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows

"In contrast to the Pouilly-Fuissé, the reduction is sufficiently prominent that I would advise decanting this first. Otherwise there is excellent concentration to the sappy and palate coating flavors that possess a lovely texture that extends to the solidly complex and sneaky long finish." Drink 2022+

17/20 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming

"Overt oak spice on the nose, but there is fresh apple fruit to match. Full and viscous on the palate, with a lovely long spiciness to finish. Not subtle, but has typical Beaune volume." Drink 2018 - 2026
