About

Paul-Henri Bouchard and hisbrothers have fallen under the spellof Domaine des Grands Devers in the southern Côtes du Rhône near Valréas in the region known as the ‘Enclave des Papes’. Characterised by a certain coolness, it has a remarkable physiological resemblance to more northerly vineyards, and consequently produces wines of elegance and finesse. Since 1999 Paul-Henri, Louis-Pascal, Guillaume and Matthieu have combined their individual talents to provide the dynamism necessary to relaunch the domaine. Two of them, Paul-Henri and Louis-Pascal, live and work full time at the property. Here Paul-Henri, the trained oenologist, can give full reign to his talents as a winemaker as well as overseeing all the work in the vineyard. For his part Louis-Pascal is responsible for the marketing and customer relations, both in France and abroad. He also manages the chambres d’hôtes accommodation which they created when they took over the domaine. Guillaume, an accountant, looks after the finances, helped by Matthieu, who is also proficient in IT. Both Guillaume and Matthieu take an active part in the vineyard work, especially at harvest time, and contribute to the important tastings from the vats, which will eventually determine the final blend of the wine. Coming from a well-known Burgundian wine merchant family they found in this vineyard a ‘terroir’ which was familiar to them.
