With a history dating as far back as 1731, Bouchard Père et Fils is one of most famous winegrowers, négociants, and producers based in Beaune. They hold the finest plots in Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune, in which more than two-thirds hold Grand Cru and Premier Cru statuses. Since the acquisition by Henriot in 1995, it has been pushed to the top echelon of Burgundy producers and quality has further improved since the first-ever gravity-flow winery in the region was completed in 2005. Bouchard Père et Fils has a fantastic line-up of both reds and whites produced from its 130 hectares of vineyard in Bourgogne. With both financial and winemaking arms, they produce wines that effectively express different climats with quality being consistently excellent year after year, attributed to the intensive work carried out from vineyard to bottle. Their wine is highly popular among Burgundy lovers as they offer amazing value-for-money compared to other producers that produce the same.

Ample wood influence is present on the cool and pure essence of baked plum liqueur, earth and plenty of floral and spice nuances. There is excellent size, weight and power to the large-scaled but not ponderous flavors that are also shaped by very firm tannins on the beautifully long if slightly warm finale. This is very promising and should ultimately prove to be very long-lived.
