Maison Bouchard

Bouchard Pere & Fils Chevalier Montrachet 2012

If you're yet to be swayed by the charms of Chardonnay, this is the bottle that is sure to change your mind. Bold and very dry, but harmoniously balanced between softness and acidity, the intense colour of this wine is matched by this aroma and taste. Vanilla and gingerbread are the first sensations to arise on the nose once the bottle is uncorked, while the palate must be experienced to be believed. Butterly almonds, smoky gunpowder and churned butter all combine for taste that's as smooth as velvet, while the soft, oaken finish is equally spectacular.

Impeccably dry, this wine is best matched with seafood, salad, cheese and cured meats. Even pasta will match up well – just keep the dish as light as possible




The story of Maison Bouchard dates back to the early 18th Century. Michel Bouchard was a cloth merchant that invested in a Burgandy estate, while his son Joseph recognised the potential for winemaking within the territory. After the French revolution, when vineyards were available at reasonable prices, Joseph Bouchard seized his opportunity and began a legacy that endures today. Eventually extending their coverage to over 50 hectares, Maison Bouchard was purchased by Joseph Henriot in 2015 - though the production of wine carrying the Bouchard name remains as consistently superior as ever.
