Producer's description

The wine house Bouchard Pere & Fils was founded in 1731, and thanks to the dedication and patient work of several generations, today it is one of the best in Burgundy. In 1731, Michel Bouchard, a merchant from Dauphine, decided to establish a business in Volnay. Together with his son Joseph, he began reselling wines in barrels. In 1775, Joseph Bouchard acquired the first plot of vineyards located in Volnay, as well as a house in Beaune. But the farm began to expand seriously only during the management of Joseph’s son, Antoine Philibert Bouchard. In 1789, during the French Revolution, the vineyards in Burgundy were divided. At this time, most of the vineyards belonged to the clergy, they were confiscated and put up for sale. Antoine took this opportunity to expand his domain. In 1791, the vineyards belonging to the Mazières Abbey in Beaune, including Clos Saint-Landry, Avo and Theron, were sold to Bouchard Père et Fis. Since that time, Clos Saint-Landry has become a monopoly, which means that the Bouchard family is the owner of the entire vineyard.

In 1820, Bernard Bouchard bought the former royal fortress Château de Beaune, built by King Louis XI. Since then, the great wines of the Domain Bouchard Père et Fis have been kept within the walls of this fortress. Throughout the 20th century, the Bouchards focused on expanding their farm. And, despite wars and crisis, they preserved the possessions collected over nine generations. On the eve of the First World War, the family owned a beautiful domaine in Beaune, spread over 35 different vineyards with a total area of 50 hectares. In 1969, the purchase of plots was in full swing, acquiring vineyards in Meursault, Chambolle-Musigny and Gevrey-Chambertin, and in 1972 a plot in Grand Cru Chambertin was purchased.

In 1995, the Bouchard family sold the farm to Joseph Henriot, the owner of the family house in Champagne, who continued the traditions established by nine generations of the Bouchard family. And today, all observers of the wine market agree that Enrio’s contribution - financial, creative, ideological - turned out to be invaluable in the new round of the history of Bouchard Pere et Fils , which quickly gained full momentum. In 2005, the St. Vincent winery was opened and a new cellar was built. Thanks to valuable centuries-old traditions and the use of new technologies, wines of the highest class are created here.

Today Bouchard Père et Fis has 130 hectares of vineyards, of which 86 hectares are Premier Cru and Grand Cru. The vineyards are known not only for their acreage, but also for their delightful location. A team of experienced specialists works here; they try to limit the use of fertilizers in the vineyards. In the process of creating wine, great attention is paid to every step, the harvest is harvested by hand, and grapes from each vineyard are vinified separately. The wines are aged in the Chateau de Beaune fortress, which has received the status of a “historical monument”. It provides ideal conditions for the maturation of wines, some of which date back to the 19th century, while others are over 50 years old.
