Bouchard Père & Fils

It was in 1731 that Michel BOUCHARD founded the House of Bouchard Père et Fils, a very old House of Bourgogne wines whose traditions have been perpetuated over 9 generations and for more than 280 years.

Since 1775, the House of Bouchard has acquired parcel after parcel of Domaine which to this day covers 130 hectares of which only 12 are legally classified as Grands Crus at the very top of the qualitative hierarchy of Bourgognes. This Domaine includes parcels of vines called "climat" with mythical names: Montrachet, Corton-Charlemagne, Beaune Grèves Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus, Bonnes-mares, Meursault Perrières...

1820: Bernard BOUCHARD buys the site of the former Château of Beaune, a royal fortress built in the fifteenth century, to store his wines in cellars 10 meters deep, which still houses today a unique collection of about 2000 bottles of the nineteenth century.

Traditions and Modernity could be the motto of this House which invested in 2005 in an efficient working tool, the Saint Vincent vat house in Savigny-lès-Beaune, based 5 meters underground thus allowing the grapes by gravitation to naturally access the 138 maceration vats or the presses. The wines are then aged in wood in a cellar with a capacity of 4000 barrels.

Description Bouchard Père & Fils Le Corton Grand Cru 2017 Magnum.

The 2017 Corton Grand Cru from Bouchard Père & Fils is an exceptional wine from the historic lands of Corton. This prestigious appellation, praised by figures such as Charlemagne and Guy de Maupassant, stands out not only for being the only Grand Cru red in the Côte de Beaune but also for being the only one to be divided into sub-climates. "Le Corton", which designates this cuvée, is thus the historic parcel that gave its name to the appellation.

The Pinot Noir grapes, carefully selected and harvested by hand, are then precisely vinified after total or partial destemming depending on the vintage. Fermentation in small containers and gentle pressing guarantee the full expression of the terroir. Aged for 12 to 14 months in French oak barrels, of which 40 to 50% are new, this wine has exceptional structure and richness.

Aged in the intimate Bastions cellars of the former Château of Beaune, it has benefited from ideal storage conditions since bottling and will be able to wait for another 10 years or more.

On the nose, the Corton Grand Cru 2017 offers an intense, deep bouquet where red and black fruit aromas blend harmoniously with spicy, smoky notes. On the palate, it asserts itself with a full-bodied, rich, racy and elegant profile.

Served between 16 and 18°C, this Grand Cru goes perfectly with game such as pheasant or woodcock, as well as mature cheeses.
