When Michel Bouchard founded his wine merchant business in Beaune in 1750 with his elder son, he wanted to settle in the heart of Burgundy and its vines. Being close to the vine-growers, he created a unique expertise in selection, wine making and aging with one mission:
Cherry red color. The nose is complex, strong and fruity (citrus, cherries), spicy, woody and undergrowth notes. On the palate, strong and fleshy. Spicy with cherry, wood and spice flavors, and well-balanced tannins.
Always search for perfection in quality, authenticity in style and prestige in the name.
For over two centuries, this has been the vision of the House of Bouchard Ainé & Fils.
The Cuve Signature range is a selection of reputed villages, Premier Crus and Grand Crus wines from Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune principally. Harvested, they are produced in very limited quantities.
Pommard is one of the most famous villages in the Côte de Beaune. The grapes for our Pommard come from a vineyard located at mid-slope, overlying soil oriented : limited yields with severe disbudding, green harvest when necessary, working of the soil, no or little use of fertilizers, environmentally friendly treatments.
