PRODUCER

Bouchard Pere et Fils

This Beaune-based domaine is one of the largest and most venerable in Burgundy. It was founded in 1731 by Michel Bouchard as a textile sales and distribution company. But twenty years later Michel’s son Joseph acquired vineyards in Volnay in the famous Les Caillerets climat and started producing wine. Over the centuries the family continued to acquire exceptional vineyards throughout the Côte d’Or. For nine generations the Bouchard family ran the estate, creating notable wines, and ran their own negociant business. In 1986 the Bouchards built a new state-of-the-art facility and in 1995 they sold the estate to the French Champagne house Joseph Henriot. With more than 300 acres of vineyards in various parts of Burgundy, Bouchard Pere et Fils produces Grand Crus, Premiers Crus and other wines. It makes red and white Burgundies and is especially well-known for Grand Cru Chardonnays.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Beaune, Les Marconnets

Les Marconnets is a 14-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the Beaune appellation, in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. The vineyard is located at the northern end of the appellation near the top of a slope. Clive Coates has called the wines of Les Marconnets “fullish, plump and rich.” Les Marconnets is one of 44 Premier Crus in Beaune, which has no Grand Crus.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
