The Burgundian wine Domaine of Bouchard Pére et Fils can trace its origins back to 1731 though it is no longer family-owned. In 1995 the Champagne house, Joseph Henriot, acquired the company and quality has risen as a consequence. Today Bouchard is led by Stéphane Follin Arbelet while the wines are made by Philippe Prost who has been with the company since 1978. An impressive gravity-flow winery on the Route de Savigny, the Cuvérie St Vincent, was completed in 2005, enabling them, to process all their wines with optimum efficiency.

In the olden days, the vineyards of this great Meursault must have been surrounded by junipers whose name has lived on. This prestigious appellation was classified as a "Tête de cuvée" as early as 1855 by Dr. Lavalle in his renowned book "Histoire et Statistiques de la Vigne et des Grands Vins de la Côte-d'Or". At that time, the terms Premiers Crus and Grands Crus were not in use. Bouchard Père & Fils owns 2.65 hectares of Meursault Genevrières, often the first Chardonnays to be harvested on the estate.

A ripe and naturally exotic nose features notes of Asian-style tea, anise, white peach and a whiff of fennel. The relatively generously proportioned medium weight flavours exude a subtle bead of minerality on the very dry and youthfully austere finish that also possesses a touch of bitter citrus character. Lovely juice and this is really quite classy.

Tasting Profile

Subtle bouquet of fruit and flowers combined with toasted hints. Full yet refined without the slightest heaviness and with the liveliness typical of Les Genevrieres. A voluptuous wine with good ageing potential.
