June 4 - Annual Bouchard Burgundy & Henriot Champagne Tasting
Hosted by Jeff Nelson, southern California Regional Manager for Henriot, Inc

Bouchard Pere & Filscurrently owns one of the largest and most varied wine estates in Burgundy. Their holdings encompass 130 hectares including 12 hectares of Grand Cru and 74 hectares of Premier Cru vineyards. 
Henriot Champagne:It was in 1808, under Apolline Henriot, that Champagne Henriot was officially founded. She was the niece of the very famous Abbé Godinot, an erudite man who contributed to improvements in viticulture and the making of the Champagne wine. Apolline, an enterprising woman of great character, sold her wines both in France and abroad. The champagne wines became a huge success with royalty and it was only natural that Champagne Henriot became the favorite firstly at the Dutch court, then in Austria and Hungary with the Hapsburgs. She passed on her savoir-faire to her grandson, Ernest : a family tradition was born.

You remember this tasting from last year when we poured two Bouchard white Burgundies, two Bouchard red Burgundies, and two Henriot Champagnes. We will do something similar this year, maybe adding some William Fevre Chablis wines.
