RATINGS: 91pts Wine Advocate

Founded in 1731 in Beaune by Michel Bouchard, Bouchard Pere & Fils, is one of the oldest wine estates in Burgundy, perpetuating tradition for over 280 years and 9 generations. In 1775, Joseph Bouchard acquired his first vineyards in Volnay in the famous "Les Caillerets" climat and started to develop the family's vineyard holdings. During the French Revolution, property belonging to the clergy and nobility was confiscated and put up for sale. Joseph's son, Antoine Philibert Joseph Bouchard, seized the opportunity to extend the family's vineyard holdings in Beaune including the famous "Beaune Greves Vigne de l'Enfant Jesus." This desire to build up an exceptional estate in Cote d'Or endured through the generations and acquisitions in the best Villages were added throughout the 19th century and again in the early 20th century.

TASTING NOTES: Wine Advocate 91 points The 2013 Le Montrachet Grand Cru has a very reserved bouquet, a light marine influence coming through with aeration of shucked oyster shells and a smidgen of orange rind. The palate is fresh and crisp, compact, more austere than the two Chevaliers at the moment, with very laconic, tight lipped finish compared to others that I have tasted. Let's see...this is giving away zilch at the moment!.Neal Martin, December/2014
