Le Bouchet is adjacent to the Clos Baudoin, on the same clay and chalk terroir as its other neighbor, the Clos du Bourg of Domaine Huet (in fact, the Clos du Bourg was supposedly a part of Le Bouchet many years ago). Of Chidaine’s two hectares here, half of the vines are young, with the rest 70-80 years old.

A rich, dense and voluptuously textured demi-sec. Chidaine notes that aromas of white truffle and iodine are typical of Le Bouchet.
