Bouchard Père et Fils Pommard

Bouchard Père et Fils Pommard


  • In the 13th century, Pommard belonged to Alix de Vergy, wife of the Duke of Burgundy, Eudes II. In 1224 and 1240, she donated it to the archbishops of Lyon. Pommard then became the property of the Ducal estate, landed gentry and religious orders. During the Revolution, the property was split up as was the case for the rest of the vineyards on the Cote-d’Or.
  • The soil and sub-soil give Pommard its exemplary color, solidity and fine aromas.
  • As Victor Hugo wrote, the wines of Pommard have “gust, inspiration and occasionally genius”.
  • These wines enjoy the optimum ambient conditions in the cellars of the Bastions of the ancient Chateau de Beaune.

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. Depending on the profile of the vintage, vatting lasts 14 to 16 days. 10 to 12 months in French oak barrels, with 20 to 30 % new oak.

Tasting Notes: Fruity and musky aromas with just the right touch of oak. Structured and firm, this wine has a pronounced personality. Full-bodied in its youth, it softens with age. Good ageing potential.
