Beaune Clos Saint

It is on the site of this remarkable vineyard that we find the oldest traces of the Chardonnay variety Beaune. Quite a rarity in this Pinot Noir territory. Before it was given the appellation of Clos Saint-Landry, this vineyard appeared under the name of Tiélandry, meaning the estate of a certain Landry. It then became the property of the abbey of Maizières before the purchase by Antoine Philibert Joseph Bouchard in 1791. Since then, Bouchard Père & Fils has preciously kept the monopoly of this white Premier Cru of 1.98 hectares.

Bonnes Mares

Could the prestige of this Grand Cru be due to the work of man or the protection of the gods ? Some think that the names comes from the verb ” marer ” which meant ” cutlivate “, whilst others assert that the ” appellation ” originated in the bas-reliefs found on the site representing the mother goddesses, or “Bonnes Mères” who
protected the harvest. In 1996, Bouchard Père & Fils acquired 24 “ares” at Chambolle-Musigny and now produces a little over 1000 bottles of this wine per year.

Chambertin Grand Cru

This appellation appears for the first time on an 18th century label as “Campus Bertini” from the name Bertin, a grower who is said to have planted and cultivated the land and obtained wines of the same quality as its famous neighbour, Le Clos de Bèze. Since then, this appellation, which was the favorite of Napoleon, has acquired such notoriety that the village of Gevrey has become Gevrey-Chambertin. The estate owns 15 ares and Bouchard Père & Fils produces some 700 bottles per year of this precious cru. The vines are planted on a gentle slope of red ferruginous chalk.

Chevalier Montrachet

According to the legend, the Lord of Montrachet shared his land out between his two sons. One became a Chevalier during the crusades and the other, illegitimate, is supposed to have given his name to Bâtard-Montrachet. Chevalier-Montrachet forms a horizontal strip at the top of the upper part of Montrachet and is made up of four terraces with different sub-soils, giving four different facets to this exceptional Grand Cru. During the 19th century, we acquired several vineyards and have now become the main owner and the only producer with vineyards on all four terraces.

Corton Charlemagne

An attractive story is told about this appellation: Charlemagne was very fond of the wine from Le Corton which, at the time, was red. Towards the end of the Emperor’s life, the vineyards facing south were planted with chardonnay, to produce a white wine to avoid staining his white beard. In 1909, Bouchard Père & Fils acquired 60% of the prestigious vineyard at Le Corton (i.e. 6.93 hectares) which, has the rare particularity of being planted with either pinot noir or chardonnay. Today, Bouchard Père & Fils is the third most important owner in Corton-Charlemagne, with 3.65 hectares.

Echezaux Grand Cru

This Côte de Nuits Grand Cru appellation adjoins to the south the famous Clos de Vougeot. Belonging to the commune of Flagey-Echezeaux, whose town centre is situated on the plain, the vineyard of Echézeaux blossoms on the hillside and produces powerful wines full of sappiness, with rich aromas of undergrowth, like this fine bottle signed Bouchard Père & Fils. Its keeping potential is remarkable.

Gevery Chambert

In the 19th century, the prestige of Chambertin became such that, as early as 1847, the village of Gevrey took on the name of Gevrey-Chambertin. Ideally situated at the top of the slope, at the mouth of the vale of Lavaux, “Les Cazetiers” is one of the most reputed “Climats” of the appellation. In the 1855 classification, this parcel was even classified like the legendary Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos-de-Bèze.

Le Corton Grand Cru

The first traces of vineyards at Aloxe-Corton date back to the 2nd. Century B.C.. Later, Le Corton was to be the favorite wine of Charlemagne. In the 19th century, the writer, Guy de Maupassant contributed to its reputation by calling it the “roi des bons vivants” in his famous novel “Bel ami”. Corton is the only red Grand Cru on the Côte de Beaune and the only Grand Cru on the Côte d’Or to be divided into “sous-
climats”. “Le Corton” is the historic vineyard which gave the name to the Corton appellation.

Pouilly Fuisse Vignes Romanes

Vigne de l’Enfant Jesus

The name “Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus” refers to an old story. It is said that Marguerite du Saint Sacrement, the founding carmelite of the “Domestiques de la famille du Saint Enfant Jésus”, predicted the birth of the king of France, Louis XIV, although her mother, Anne of Austria, was sterile. On the birth of the future “Roi Soleil”, this exceptional vineyard which belonged to the Carmelites, took on the name “Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus”. In 1791, when all national property was sold, Bouchard Père & Fils put in a bid for the vineyard, situated in the heart of the 32 hectares of the Beaune Grèves appellation, of which it still has the monopoly today.

Volnay Clos De Chenes

The name of this “Climat” comes, as its name suggests, from oak trees which have long since disappeared.
