Marks and reviews
Founded in 1731 in Beaune, Bouchard Père & Fils is one of the oldest wine estates in Burgundy. For nearly 3 centuries, 9 generations have succeeded one another, driven by the ambition of creating an exceptional estate in Burgundy.
Gradually built up over the years, the vineyard at the Bouchard Père & Fils estate today stretches across 130 hectares of vines. Bringing together prestigious appellations and exceptional plots, the Bouchard Père & Fils vineyard constitutes a unique winegrowing heritage in Burgundy.
It was in 1220 that Clos de la Mousse was bequeathed to the Chapter of Notre-Dame by the Canon Edme de Saudon. Broken up during the French Revolution, the Clos de la Mousse vineyard was gradually acquired by the Bouchard family following various acquisitions. A monopoly vintage of the Bouchard Père & Fils house since 1872 and still enclosed by its original wall, the Premier Cru "Clos de La Mousse" Domaine Monopole 2018 from Bouchard Père & Fils is a Beaune wine produced from a 3.36-hectare terroir.
Winemaking and ageing
