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.
90-92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2013
(tasted from barrel): Bright, dark red. Soil-driven aromas of raspberry, chocolate, spices and stone. Sweet and tactile on the palate, with a subtle complexity and very good energy to the flavors of red berries, licorice and chalky minerality. Dense and seamless, with tangy acidity giving the middle palate good perfumed lift. Finishes slightly herbal, even a bit tart, but with noteworthy energy. In a more modern style than the Caillerets.
