Michel Bouchard founded the Burgundian wine estate in 1731, ranking it among the oldest in the region. The Chateau de Beaune, built by King Louis XI in the 15th century and the centrepiece of Domaine Bouchard Pere & Fils, was bought by Bernard Bouchard in 1820. The deep underground cellars of this grand chateau provide perfect storage conditions for wine, displaying the bottled history of the estate. The estate remained in family hands for almost three hundred years, acquiring a huge amount of land, until it was sold to Joseph Henriot, of Champagne fame, in 1995.
Domaine Bouchard Pere & Fils is the largest domaine in the Cote d'Or, representing 130 hectares of vines, most of which are classed Premier Cru and Grand Cru.
With a greater sense of structure than possessed by most other Bouchard Beaune crus of its vintage, their 2008 Beaune Marconnets is nonetheless very fine-grained. Ripe purple plum tinged with fresh ginger and chalk; a Latakia tobacco-like smokiness; and an intensely bright finish to which the sense of chewing fruit skins lends invigoration all make for a vibrant performance that should be replicable from the bottle for a decade or more.
Full, deep red. Medicinal cherry on the reticent nose. This is all spine today, with strong acidity and serious tannic backbone currently keeping the flavors of black cherry, flint and licorice under wraps. Plenty of energy here but this will need time to unwind.
