Champagne Bouché Pére & Fils Millésime 2006

1st April 2019


Champagne Bouché Pére & Fils is a winery located just south of the heartbeat01 town of the Champagne region of Epernay, a family run business of four generations with 30 hectares to its name.

Based in Pierry for four generations, the family Bouché runs a 30 hectares vineyard located in the best terroirs of Champagne.
We put all our experience in producing elegant and delicate champagnes, developed in strict accordance with the Champagne tradition.

Nicolas Bouché Winemaker, their Enologist, sees over a fine range of labels made from 75% of ranked first and Grand Cru (village of Pierry, Chouilly, Verzenay, Verzy, Tauxieres) – Three grapes will be found in their wines being Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

Vintages are wonderful from this Champagne house which landed them a trophy in 2017 for ‘Vintage’ at The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly Awards. We are now seeing their latest millésime of 2006 which we were kindly sent a couple of samples of to taste and review:

Champagne Bouché Pére & Fils Millésime 2006: “You must allow this Champagne a few moments in the glass to come alive. A warm yellow colouring and fine perlage. Aromas are plenty and engaging, led by pastry / brioche with hints of honeycomb, over ripe apricots. Now on to the taste which is just as high impacting, yellow stone fruits, apricot / honey pastry with a pleasing length. Not only a Champagne for that special moment, but this will also be great for pairing with fine foods – deserves to be sat on any table.
