About Bouchard Pere et Fils
Maison Bouchard Pére et Fils was founded in 1731 by a cloth merchant from Dauphine named Michel Bouchard. By the end of his life, he had assembled the négociant operation which would grow into what is today the largest owner of Premier and Grand Cru vineyards in the Côte d'Or.

(from a cooler spot featuring chalky white soil; picked five days after the Caillerets) Pungent aromas of black cherry, licorice and mint. Juicy and tightly wound, showing a less sophisticated texture than the Caillerets. Medicinal dark cherry is complicated by a creamy suggestion of dark chocolate. Finishes with slightly tough tannins that will need more elevage, not to mention time in bottle. This is evolving slowly.
