EXCLUSIVE

On this exceptional occasion, the Bouchard Père & Fils House
unlocks the doors
to its legendary vintages.

Founded in 1731 by Michel Bouchard, the Bouchard Père & Fils House is one of the oldest and most prestigious wine estates in Burgundy. Over the years, Bouchard Père & Fils has gradually expanded its holdings through the acquisition of exceptional vineyards, located in some of the most beautiful "climats" of Burgundy. A vast estate on the Côte-d'Or, which today oversees 130 hectares of vines in prestigious appellations such as: Montrachet, Corton-Charlemagne, Beaune Grèves Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus, Bonnes-Mares and Meursault Perrières. The old vintages of the House are quite rare. They regularly arouse the interest of fine wine connoisseurs, as some of the most sought-after wines in the world. These wines even break sales records, as in the case of their Chambertin 1865, which in 2016 sold for more than 35,000 euros! Millésima offers you the very special opportunity to discover these unique Bouchard Père & Fils wines through a selection of legendary old vintages from 1919 to 1990.

The Old Vintages

Burgundy

Vintage 1919 :
Very good balance of acidity and smoothness from the best terroirs for wines that are very tough in their youth.
Bouchard Père & Fils :
Beaune 1er cru "Les Avaux" Domaine 1919 - Beaune - Red
Vintage 1945 : A balanced, silky and velvety palate.
Bouchard Père & Fils :
Musigny Grand cru 1945 - Musigny - Red
Vintage 1947 :
A beautifully clear and bright colour, shimmering ruby. A magnificent persistence on the nose, and an impressively subtle finish that seems to go on forever.

Consistent, harmonious and endowed with a regal balance, the wines of this vintage have plenty of character and a beautiful stewed fruit quality.
