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
Vinous, Stephen Tanzer (2016 vintage)
"(Weber vinified this wine from purchased grapes and from grapes and must that Bouchard acquires through exchanges with other properties): Aromas of white peach and white pepper show hints of banana and oak but also attractive floral lift. Less fat and more energy here than the Meursault Les Clous, in a more masculine, spicy style in spite of its breadth and richness. Finishes with a faint phenolic edge. Weber finds that many of the Bouchard 2015s are going through an oaky phase that began in April."
