Renowned and respected as one of the finest producers in Burgundy, Bouchard Père et Fils has truly become an institution, known for the exceptional quality of their wines and the diversity of its many vineyards. Founded in 1731, Bouchard Père et Fils has built up an estate of 130ha and, collectively, is the largest owner of Grand Crus (12ha) and Premier Crus (74ha) across the Côte d’Or Bouchard Père et Fils represents almost one hundred ‘climats’ or uniquely diverse vineyards, including prestigious monopoles such as ‘Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus’ and ‘Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte’.
Here the wood is a bit more discreet though hardly invisible as it highlights the liqueur-like aromas of plum, violets and dark currant. The vibrant middle weight flavors are not as concentrated or velvety as those of the Clos de la Mousse but I like the delivery as the finish is clean, complex and dry in the best sense. Overall, this is more refined but ultimately there just isn't as much here. Score: 90 Points; Tasted: Apr 2014; Drink: 2020+; Issue: 54; Allen Meadows - Burghound
