In 1859, Maison Louis Max was founded in Nuits-Saint-Georges, in the heart of the Côtes de Nuits region of Burgundy. Today, four generations later, Louis Max is still a family business. It produces some of the finest Burgundy appellations, from the vineyards of Chablis to those of Mâcon, taking in on the way the Côtes de Nuits, Côtes de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise.
Philippe Bardet, who became president of Maison Louis Max in 2007, is a Burgundian born and bred. He has a passion for the well-known Burgundy terroirs. Not only is he a remarkable connoisseur of both the prestigious Côtes de Nuits wines and the best Mâconnais and Beaujolais terroirs, but he is also a great proponent of the Pinot Noir cépage.
Beaucharme Bourgogne is made from 100% Pinot Noir. Burgundy region is the mother of the Pinot Noir, the most delicate grape for red wines in the world. All the highest red wines in Burgundy are made with Pinot Noir, the exclusive red grape for Burgundy. Production of Bourgogne Pinot Noir is principally centered in three adjacent departments of Yonne to the North of Côte d Or and to the South of the Saône et Loire.
