Description

Since 1750, Bouchard Ainé & Fils is devoted to the excellence and renown of the region's noble grapes. The 18th-century Hôtel du Conseiller du Roy in Beaune houses the cellars where is perpetuated, generation after generation, the tradition of quality, elegance and prestige in selecting and making fine Burgundy wines.

The Beaune vineyards are among the most extensive of the Côte. This "Village" appellation covers 410 hectares, 317 of which are classified as Premier Cru. The right to use the words "Premier Cru" is a distinction granted to certain climats whose wines are traditionally highly regarded, as with the plot known as "Les Marconnets", which extends over 9.39 hectares.
