History and presentation of Domaine Bouchard père et fils..


The history of this historical house goes back to the 18th century when Michel Bouchard, a cloth manufacturer by trade, undertook tours in Burgundy to Flanders to sell his fabrics. Attracted by the profitability of the wine trade, he decided to enter the wine business. The acquisition of his first vineyard thanks to the wine trade dates from 1774. This estate is located in Volnay. He then founded the company "Bouchard Père & Fils" in 1785 with his son and grandson. In 1820, the descendant Bernard Bouchard acquired the prestigious castle of Beaune built by King Louis XI and installed the wine cellars in its underground passages and bastions. The cellars are located 10 meters below ground level on a surface of 4 000 m2. This location of the cellar ensures the ideal temperature and constant humidity for the maturation and conservation of the wines. Over the centuries, Michel Bouchard and the other members of his family have built up a huge estate covering 130 hectares along the coast. Other acquisitions has enriched the vines in Volnay, including Clos Saint-Landry, Beaune Clos de la Mousse, Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet and Beaune Grève vigne de l'enfant Jésus, to name but a few. The boom in international trade began in the early 20th century. Since then, the wines of Burgundy are served on the tables of starred restaurants and aboard the airlines company and cruise ships. However, the financial crisis of the 90's had an impact on the domain's turnover. As a result, the heirs decided to sell their parcels. The CEO of the Henriot group, impressed by the potential of the establishment, its well established reputation, and its requirement of quality for its wines, bought it in 1995. In 2005, he equipped the old family business with a new, more efficient winery.
