Maison Bouchard Père er Fils is one oldest producers and vineyard owners in the Cote d'Or. A family wine merchant business was first established by Michel Bouchard and his son Joseph in Beaune in 1731. The first vineyards were purchased in Volnay in 1791 from the French Revolutionary Government, and so began a long history of gathering fine 'Terroirs'. In 1995 Bouchard Père et Fils was bought by Joseph Henriot, whose family have been growers and producers in Champagne for over 200 years. Since then Joseph Henriot has taken every opportunity to continue the Bouchard family tradition of investing in fine vineyards, and has restored the 15th Century Chateau de Beaune to become a fitting home to the many thousands of bottles of fine Burgundy that lie ageing in the perfect conditions of the Chateau's cellars. This wine is produced on stony soil with elements of clay and limestone, and has good ageing potential. There are red fruits on the nose; the palate has a combination of fruit, elegance and suppleness.
