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
92-95/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows
"Very generous wood and menthol elements aren't fully integrated with the very ripe black cherry and raspberry liqueur-like aromas that flash soft spice and floral nuances. There is a strikingly lovely mouth feel to the intense mineral-driven and despite the excellent richness, first-rate delineation to the more powerful if perhaps slightly less refined finish this is linear, serious and gorgeously long. A knock-out." Drink 2031+
90-92/100 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
"(no frost): Bright ruby-red. Sweet but lightly medicinal aromas of red and black cherry; seemed to close up in the glass. Supple and concentrated but quite primary, even a bit reduced, and distinctly less showy today than the Caillerets. The medicinal quality carries through on the finish, where the slightly angular tannins build. This wine needs a racking--not to mention time in the cellar."
