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 treatment is sufficiently strong that it stops only just short of dominating the ripe, fresh and airy mix of rose petal, red currant and soft spice aromas. There is a lovely mouth feel and better than average detail to the utterly delicious and caressing medium weight flavors that exhibit a subtle minerality on the sleek, dusty and complex finale that is both balanced and impressively persistent. Worth checking out and note that my rating assumes that the wood will be integrated in time. Rating: 91 Points; Tasted: Apr 2016; Drink: 2022+; Issue: 62; Allen Meadows - Burghound
