The Story: Philippe Boucard and his wife Patricia and sister Stephanie are just the three most public members of an extended family that farms one of the most extensive domains in Bourgueil. The domaine was founded in 1869, boasting 5 generations of winegrowers, with a sixth waiting in the wings. The family first bottled their wine for re-sale in 1947, something quite rare outside of the greatest estates in Burgundy and Bordeaux. It was, and continues to be made in a relatively traditional style, capable of long aging, as attested by the ancient vintages slumbering in the mold-covered cellars.
