Bouchard Père & Fils, founded in 1731 by Michel Bouchard in Beaune, is one of Burgundy's oldest wine estates. Over nine generations, the Bouchard family has perpetuated their winemaking tradition, acquiring prestigious vineyards across the Côte d'Or.
In 1820, they aquired the Château de Beaune, a 15th-century royal fortress built by King Louis XI. Parts of the original ramparts and four towers still stand, designated historic monuments since 1937.
Today, the estate encompasses a vast 130 hectares, including 12 Grand Cru and 74 Premier Cru holdings.
Beneath the Château lie the estate's deep cellars, providing ideal natural storage conditions for their wines. These cellars house a unique collection of over 2,000 bottles from the 19th century, with the oldest being a remarkably well-preserved Meursault Charmes from 1846.

Bouchard Père & Fils embodies Burgundian heritage, offering a diverse portfolio of prestigious appellations like Montrachet, Corton-Charlemagne, and Beaune Grèves Vignes de l'Enfant Jésus.
Their meticulous viticulture ensures the best expression of each terroir. Combining tradition with modern techniques, they strive to craft exquisite wines, each vintage showcasing its unique personality.
Sustainable viticulture practices are common throughout the year to ensure the authenticity and full potential of each wine. Harvest is a manual affair, with grapes placed in small crates and meticulously sorted before vinification; they employs a team of experts dedicated to understanding every terroir, vine, and grape bunch.

The winery commitment to precision extends to their state-of-the-art winery, the St. Vincent facility in Savigny-lès-Beaune. Utilizing gravity flow, grapes are transferred to tanks and presses for vinification. Following vinification, the wines are aged in oak barrels within a vast cellar with a 4,000-barrel capacity.
The barrel cellar is situated 10 meters underground, providing ideal ventilation and humidity for the wines' maturation process. The domaine cellars offer similar aging conditions, allowing the wines to develop over extended periods.
Bouchard Père & Fils' meticulous attention to detail, from vine to bottle, contributes to the exceptional story each wine tells. Their wines are a harmonious blend of nature and craftsmanship, offering a unique and timeless experience for discerning wine lovers.
