Founded in 1731 in Beaune by Michel Bouchard, Bouchard Père & Fils, is one of the oldest wine estates in Burgundy. With 130 hectares of vines, amongst them some of the finest 1er and Grand Crus sites, they are the largest vineyard owners in the Cote d’Or. Since 1978, Philippe Prost has been head wine-maker, with an intimate knowledge of the Domaine’s terroir, while management of the Domaine today is in the hands of Stéphane Follin Arbelet.
“Intense notes of black fruit blended with oaky touches and delicately spiced. Full and fleshy on the palate, the structure of this wine is based around elegant tannins. Very good ageing potential.”
