Bouju Patrick
La Bohême

Patrick Bouju has become an essential figure in the generation that is bringing back colour to the Auvergne vineyards, with a strong ambition to produce true terroir wines in the most natural way, wines that are dense, deep and very drinkable.

Within the generation that is bringing back colour to the Auvergne vineyards, Patrick Bouju has established himself as an essential figure. In what he calls the "Tuscany of Auvergne", he is committed, with his Domaine La Bohème (4.7 ha) created in 2004, to highlighting some of the most beautiful terroirs of Auvergne (clay-limestone or of volcanic origin) and their well-known grape varieties - Gamay, in particular the very local Gamay d'Auvergne in old vines (some of which are 120 years old! ), pinot noir - of course, or forgotten (mirefleurien, gamays teinturiers...). The ambition is to produce true terroir wines in the most natural way: plant-based treatments, small yields. The vinification is done either with grapes destemmed for a long time but gently macerated or with carbonic maceration, with indigenous yeasts and without sulphur. Wines that need time to express themselves fully, offered in the "simple" Vin de France appellation: full and juicy Gamays, rich in floral and fruity notes (Violette, Lulu), dense and fleshy (La Bohème), a pinot noir with a very terroir signature (Cailloux), but also whites and natural sparkling wines.
