When Michel Bouchard settled in Burgundy in 1731 to set up a flourishing business in the fabric trade followed by branching out to become a wine broker, he laid down the family's Burgundian roots. In 1750, his eldest son, Joseph, joined him in his venture, reaffirming the presence of the Bouchards in the CÃƒOr. Working closely with local winegrowers, they developed a unique form of expertise, and created the profession of nÃƒÂ©gociant-winemaker-cellarer.
For over two centuries, the House of Bouchard AÃƒÂ®nÃƒÂ© & Fils has had as its mission an unyielding quest for perfection in quality, authenticity of style, the prestige that lies in a name, and perfect mastery of grape selection, winemaking and ageing. The first nÃƒÂ©gociants came into being at the beginning of the 18th century to meet the demand of French and Flemish clients in particular; this was the beginning of the development of international trade.
All of the wines made by our House bear the Bouchard AÃƒÂ®nÃƒÂ© & Fils signature, a name which has been a sign of prestige synonymous with tradition, excellence and know-how since 1750. This signature, applied to a complete range of wines, takes the Bouchard AÃƒÂ®nÃƒÂ© & Fils name to the four corners of the globe. Over the years, the name and the House of Bouchard AÃƒÂ®nÃƒÂ© & Fils have become synonymous with the Great Wines of Burgundy.
