Founded in 1731, Bouchard Père & Fils is the owner of an exceptional vineyard in Burgundy with 130 hectares in the heart of the Côte d’Or. With 12 hectares classified as Grands Crus and 74 as Premiers Crus, this unique patrimony includes almost a hundred different “climats” of which some are prestigious exclusivities, such as Beaune Grèves "Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus" and Chevalier-Montrachet "La Cabotte".
BOUCHARD PERE ET FILS

At the beginning of the 19th century, Bouchard Père & Fils was established in the Château de Beaune, where it remains today. The underground galleries of this imposing 15th century fortress constitute cellars with ideal conditions for ageing. They shelter a fabulous collection of nearly 2000 bottles from the 19th century, the oldest being a Meursault Charmes 1846.
In 1995, Bouchard Père & Fils becomes the property of the Henriot family group. It has enabling provision of the best financial and technical means as well as an extension of the vineyard in the Côte de Nuits and Meursault. With high regard to tradition but with no nostalgia for the past, Bouchard Père & Fils created in 2005 a magnificent new winery, the cuverie saint-Vincent. At 10 metres deep, the barrel cellar enjoys ideal temperature and hygrometry conditions and is naturally aero-ventilated.

At Bouchard Père & Fils, the teams bring precision and excellence at every stage: work tailored to the specificities of each parcel, careful harvesting, respect of grapes, gravity to avoid pumping, careful vinification of each parcel separately so as to best express the character of the different terroirs. Bouchard Père & Fils is the faithful expression of the distinctiveness and the complexity of Burgundy and its wines are ranked among the best at professional wine tastings.

"We are lucky in possessing a collection no doubt unique in the world of Burgundian wines, dating back to 1830. When we have the opportunity to taste certain old vintages, we admire them and we are at the same time convinced that the wines that we are now putting down in our cellars will be most worthy successors." - Joseph Henriot
