The Wine

Located between Volnay and Meursault, the village of Monthélie is much less known than its illustrious neighbours. However, on this terroir, the first traces of vines go back to the 9th century. As for the "Les Duresses" climate, it is divided between the villages of Auxey-Duresses, of which it is the jewel, and the village of Monthélie, where it is one of the most remarkable Premiers Crus. The 1.72 hectares of the Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils, often harvested a little later than the other Monthélie, give birth to rich and pleasantly structured wines.

About the Wine Maker

Today the Burgundian wine domaine of Bouchard Pere et Fils can trace its origins back to 1731, though it is no longer family owned. In 1995 the Champagne house Joseph Henriot acquired the company and quality has risen as a consequence. Bouchard is led by Stéphane Follin Arbelet, while the wines are made by Philippe Prost - who has been with the company since 1978. An impressive gravity-flow winery on the Route de Savigny, the Cuvérie St Vincent, was completed in 2005 and enables them to process all their wines with optimum efficiency. Bouchard’s total holdings comprise 130 hectares, including 12ha of grand crus and 74ha of premier crus, which makes them the largest vineyard owners in the Côte d’Or.
