  • The soil and sub-soils of Chambolle-Musigny are of ideal composition to produce wines with remarkable finesse and elegance, which leads to their nickname the “Volnay of the Côte de Nuits.“
  • The soil is generally quite shallow often just covering the rock. The vines reach as far as 33-feet down through faults in the rock, notably in Musigny.

Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir

Elaboration: Purchased grapes are made through long-term grower contracts, who are committed to respecting Bouchard Père & Fils’ strict quality control. Vatting of the wine last from 2 – 3 weeks. The wine is matured for 12 months in French oak, of which, 30% is new.

Tasting Notes: Expressive nose developing red berry notes and a light oaky hint. Tender and delicate, with an elegant structure, this is a wine with of charm.

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. 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 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 Châteaude Beaune, Maison Bouchard Père & Fils uses the underground galleries and bastions of this fortress built by LuisXI, 10 meters below ground, for the slow maturing of its wines under optimal conditions. Millions of bottles, including a rare collection of pre-phylloxera wines rest in the cellars today protected by 7 meter thick walls.
