Beautiful flesh in mouth, a delicious marriage where tannins and fruits are pleasantly mixed. Founded in 1731, Maison Bouchard Père & Fils is one of Burgundy’s oldest wine merchant houses. Over the centuries, the House has been devoted to acquiring highly renowned parcels, in order to build a prestigious domaine: 130 hectares of vines in the heart of the Côte d’Or - 12 classified as Grand Crus and 74 as Premier Crus. The famed vineyards include: Beaune Gréves Vigne de L’Enfant Jésus, Chevalier-Montrachet, Montrachet, Corton, Corton-Charlemagne, Bonnes-Mares and Clos Vougeot to name a few. In 1995 this exceptional collection was purchased by Joseph Henriot, and is today part of Maisons & Domaines Henriot. Maison Bouchard Père & Fils has invested in a modern cuverie enabling the vinification of more than 100 different crus. From the vine to bottle, the process is handled with meticulous care, to ensure the most faithful expression of each terroir. Installed since the beginning of the 19th century on the site of the ancient Château de Beaune, Maison Bouchard Père & Fils uses the underground galleries and bastions of this fortress built by Luis XI, 10 meters below ground, for the slow maturing of its wines under optimal conditions. Millions of bottles, including a rare collection of prephylloxera wines rest in the cellars today protected by 7 meter thick walls.

Bouchard Pere & Fils Chassagne Montrachet 2016Rich aromas of red and black fruit. A fleshy, structured yet totally elegant wine. Good ageing potential. Pair with grilled and roasted meat, medium-flavored cheeses. The 2016’s are back to the great “acid backbone” of the 2014’s. On the south of the Côte de Beaune, the village of Chassagne became Chassagne-Montrachet in the 19th century, thereby benefiting from the notoriety of the mythical Montrachet Grand Cru. Facing east – southeast, the vineyards are planted with both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, which produces some of the finest white wines in the world. Founded in 1731, Maison Bouchard Père & Fils is one of Burgundy’s oldest wine merchant houses. Over the centuries, the House has been devoted to acquiring highly renowned parcels, in order to build a prestigious domaine: 130 hectares of Crus. The famed vineyards include: Beaune Grèves Vigne de L’Enfant Jésus, Chevalier-Montrachet, Montrachet, Corton, Corton-Charlemagne, Bonnes-Mares and Clos Vougeot to name a few.
Domaine des Perdrix Vosne Romanée 2014Garnet colour with purple tints. The nose is discret at a first glance offering dark fruits notes, ashes and undergrowth. On the palate, the structure is firm and integrated. Tannins play their lovely game. We catch back on the dark fruits perfumes. Powerful and long aftertaste. Food Pairings: Our Vosne-Romanée 2014 will perfectly pair with coq au vin, roasted quails with morels, pheasant with its seasonal veggies as well as cheeses : Salers, Beaufort or Selles-sur-Cher.
Joseph Drouhin Charmes Chambertin 2016A generous and distinctive wine, often superb. The colour is intense and bright. On the nose, the first impression that arises is that of cherry. Then, woody and fine spicy aromas appear, with an elegant hint of musk in some vintages. The flavours are extraordinary in their richness and harmony, neither too rough nor too heavy. The architecture of the wine is held up by fine and noble tannins, giving the body a silky texture (called "gras"). Acidity brings energy and liveliness to the whole. The aftertaste is a pure delight.
Joseph Drouhin Santenay 2016Joseph Drouhin's Santenay has an intense ruby-red color and the fragrances of cherries, raspberries and truffles. The tannins are usually supple. The finish, medium-long, is extremely pleasant and aromatic. Food Pairings: It is a delicious example of Burgundy Pinot Noir, a good value and an excellent accompaniment to all kinds of cuisines.
Joseph Drouhin Chambolle Musigny 2016The wines of Chambolle have always been highly prized for their finesse and elegance. The color is lovely. Aromas are very complex and evoke violet, cherries and humus, with blackberry and noble tannins coating the palate. Extremely well balanced, the wine has a very persistent, rounded finish. With age, the aromas turn to mushroom and underbrush, while conserving all their finesse. Chambolle-Musigny should be served with delicately prepared dishes, such as "Canard aux cerises" (duck cooked with cherries) or "Boeuf aux morilles" (beef with morels). The cheeses should be ripe but not too strong.
Joseph Drouhin Cote de Beaune 2016A true delight and a great harmony! A beautiful purple colour. On the nose, delicate and fruity aromas such as strawberry and red currant. On the palate, the tannins are refined and lend a nice roundness to the body. Elegant aftertaste.
Joseph Drouhin Vosne-Romanée 2016Supreme elegance! Beautiful color, with intense and bright relections. The diversity of the aromas is striking: wild cherry, nutmeg, camphor wood, fine leather...Later on, the wine takes on a subtle aroma of truffle, producing the most varied palette. With its perfect balance between tannin and acidity, the wine has a fleshy, sturdy body. Powerful and long aftertaste. A wealth of harmonious sensations characterizes this great Burgundy.
Joseph Drouhin Gevrey Chambertin 2016Gevrey-Chambertin is a wine with a beautiful, bright ruby colour. Intensely fruity on the nose, the aromas are reminiscent of black cherry, wild blackberry and liquorice. The woody character is subtle and marries delicately with the other aromas. As the wine evolves, there are more complex notes, such as mild spice, nutmeg and leather. Later still, mushroom and damp earth nuances make their appearance. Although present on the palate, tannin is never astringent but blends itself harmoniously with the natural freshness and "gras" (velvety texture) of the wine. The same aromas encountered earlier on the nose are found again in the aftertaste.
Joseph Drouhin Nuits St Georges 2016Deep red color. The aromas are powerful and elegant, with notes of cherry and blackberry, as well as hints of cedar wood evolving towards gamey touches. On the palate, beautiful balance between structure and softness. The long aftertaste is reminiscent of fruit syrups and mild spices. This great red Burgundy deserves a more traditional cuisine: red meat in light sauces, game, venison and ripe cheeses will create a rich tapestry of flavors worthy of a medieval feast.
