For seven generations, the Bouzereau family has carefully cultivated grapes to produce a quality Burgundy wine. In 1999, Michel Bouzereau let his son, Jean-Baptiste, take over the reins of the domaine. Jean-Baptiste pays close attention to his vines, practicing respectful viticulture to obtain healthy, succulent fruit on the palate. Vinification is just as meticulous. It enables the aromatic notes of the fruit to be found in each vintage. It takes place at Domaine Michel Bouzereau et Fils, in the heart of Meursault.
Location of Domaine Michel Bouzereau et Fils
Domaine Michel Bouzereau et Fils is located in the village of Meursault, on the Côte de Beaune in Burgundy. The vines are spread over Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and other communes. Domaine Bouzereau benefits from 10.5 hectares of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir plots. The vines grow on a variety of soils. In the vineyard, young vines rub shoulders with old vines (dating back to 1955). The diversity of grape varieties, climates, soils and vine age enables Jean-Baptiste Bouzereau to create singular wines with a unique nose.
