Renowned and respected as one of the finest producers in Burgundy, Bouchard Père et Fils has truly become an institution, known for the exceptional quality of their wines and the diversity of its many vineyards.

Founded in 1731, Bouchard Père et Fils has built up an estate of 130ha and, collectively, is the largest owner of Grand Crus (12ha) and Premier Crus (74ha) across the Côte d’Or. Bouchard Père et Fils represents almost one hundred ‘climats’ or uniquely diverse vineyards, including prestigious monopoles such as ‘Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus’ and ‘Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte’.

According to the legend, the Lord of Montrachet shared his land with his two sons. One became a Chevalier during the crusades and the other, illegitimate, is supposed to have given his name to Bâtard-Montrachet. Chevalier-Montrachet forms a horizontal strip at the top of the upper part of Montrachet and is made up of four terraces with different sub-soils, giving four different facets to this exceptional Grand Cru. During the 19th century, Bouchard acquired several vineyards and has now become the main owner and the only producer with vineyards on all four terraces.


92 - 94 points

Cool, pure and elegant aromas are comprised by notes of essence of green apple, a panoply of spice elements, mineral reduction and plenty of citrus nuances, all of which is trimmed in just enough wood to mention. The very rich, full-bodied and markedly powerful flavours coat the palate with dry extract while the firm acid spine preserves the excellent delineation on the austere and intense citrusy finale. This too would benefit from having better depth but that should reasonably occur with a few years of bottle aging.

Tasting Profile

Distinguished bouquet with floral and fruit aromas as well as a toasted note. Complex and rich, without the least heaviness this wine is elegance itself. Very good ageing potential.
