About Bouchard Père & Fils
Backed by nearly three centuries of heritage, Bouchard Père & Fils is one of the oldest producers in Burgundy with extensive vineyard holdings all across Burgundy, producing wines from a mind-numbing array of appellations. The Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru vineyard is located north of Montrachet and consists of 4 terraces with different sub-soils. Bouchard Père & Fils owns 2.5 hectares of vines from the Chevalier-Montrachet plot and has now become the main owner and only producer with vines from all 4 terraces, which the estate has been vinifying separately since 1992.
Since 1731, Bouchard Pere et Fils has carefully acquired some of the best Cote d'Or vineyards, including 12 Grand Cru and 74 Premier Cru. Their most famous vineyard, Beaune Greves Vigne de L'Enfant Jesus, was added during the French Revolution when property from clergy and nobility was seized and put up for sale. Bouchard Pere et Fils are winegrowers, producers and negotiants and they have played a significant role in the history of Burgundy.
