Estate Notes

Les Bouchères premier cru takes its name from the old French word 'borchère' derived from 'mussel bed' and meaning little bush. Facing east-southeast, the vineyard is situated just below Porusots, where the terroir is characterised by a steep slope and shallow soil and the bedrock is never far away.

François Délaby-Génot made enormous progress in crafting benchmark Burgundy, recently completing a new phase of rebuilding and expansion. The last few years saw a huge leap forward in the quality of produce, yet despite its burgeoning reputation, its wines still represent excellent Burgundian value-for-money. And now since Guillaume Lavollée has taken over direction of the winemaking of this, one of the largest private domains in the Côte d’Or, the red wines have regained their quality and finesse, comparable to the estate’s magnificent white wines. The vineyards are now in process of biodynamic conversion. 

Reviews

Restrained and fine with lovely complexity and ripe depth. Exceptionally good balance and structure for this opulent vintage. Very long finish.
