            [ServingSuggestion] => Fish, Shellfish, Foie Gras
            [WineMakingNotes] => Following hand picking in small cases and ruthless sorting of grapes, pressing takes place in two phases; extraction of the first juice, then pressing in two-hourly cycles. Depending on the vintage, vatting can last from 18-21 days, and maturing is then carried out from 12 - 14 months in French oak barrels, with 45-60% new oak.

Each vineyard is tended to the highest level with 15 years of sustainable viticulture culminating in the highest level of HVE sustainability 
certification in 2015. 
“Our motto at the winery is ‘no rules’. Our approach is to go with the terroirs and the vintage, to adapt ourselves to each vineyard, each year, so that we can coax out the purest expression and the finest emotions. There is a great deal of risk involved in this listening approach, as well as humility towards the living matter that is wine, but it is an extremely rewarding challenge.”

About this product +

Producer >

Since its foundations in 1731, Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils has put together an exceptional vineyard holding along the Côte d’Or. Driven by the desire to build an exceptional estate, they currently have 130ha of vineyards: 12ha of which are Grand Cru, 74ha Premier Cru, 4  individual Monopolies- the total covering over 450 vineyard sites. Each vineyard is tended to the highest level with 2021 seeing the first wines certified Organic. The Premier and Grand Cru vineyards are all farmed biodynamically. The pursuit of excellence at Bouchard Pere et Fils is driven by their work in the vineyards. “Our motto at the winery is ‘no rules’. Our approach is to go with the terroirs and the vintage, to adapt ourselves to each vineyard, each year, so that we can coax out the purest expression and the finest emotions. There is a great deal of risk involved in this  listening approach, as well as humility towards the living matter that is wine, but it is an extremely rewarding challenge.” Frédéric Weber – Cellar Master.

Winemaking >

Following hand picking in small cases and ruthless sorting of grapes, pressing takes place in two phases; extraction of the first juice, then pressing in two-hourly cycles. Depending on the vintage, vatting can last from 18-21 days, and maturing is then carried out from 12 - 14 months in French oak barrels, with 45-60% new oak.
