Full description

The estate

Founded in 1731 and located in Beaune in the heart of Burgundy’s Climats for nearly three centuries, the family-owned Maison Bouchard Père & Fils cultivates a search for excellence and the transmission of knowledge. Highly sought after, its wines benefit from optimal ageing conditions in the underground cellars of Château de Beaune, the former 15th century royal fortress that the Maison has occupied since 1820. The Maison was acquired by the Henriot family in 1995 and is part of Artémis Domaines since September 2022.

The vineyard

The 130 hectares of vines are spread over a hundred climats in the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits, three quarters of which are Premiers and Grands Crus, including: Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet, Meursault, Volnay, Pommard, Beaune Clos Saint-Landry, Beaune Clos de la Mousse, Beaune Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus, Corton, Corton-Charlemagne, Bonnes-Mares, Clos de Vougeot, Chambertin, etc.

Obtaining level HEV3 certification in 2015, the Maison has been committed to a more responsible approach to winegrowing since 2009, with all the vineyards moving towards organic certification by 2026.

The Vintage

This is the most southernly appellation of the Côte de Nuits producing wines rich in tannin which gives them strength, depth and a high potential for laying down, from five to fifteen years.

2018 : Rain, then fine weather and impeccable quality


After a very mild start to the year, temperatures became decidedly chillier, but it remained grey and overcast with lots of rain. Come April, and some warmth returned. Thermometer readings rose steadily over the coming months, at times becoming unseasonably hot, and sunshine became ever more plentiful as harvest time approached. There were a few stormy spells though, and these finished off the ripening that the hot, dry conditions had stalled. Vegetative growth therefore continued its course. The bumper harvest took place amidst cloudy, cool conditions. This vintage has yielded beautifully ripe grapes of premium quality.

 

As such, the red wines exhibit strikingly dark robes, very mature bouquets and are dense and supple on the palate. Elegance, complexity and expressiveness, as ever, grace the chardonnays.
