Bouchard Monthelie 2012
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’.
A cool and reserved nose of mostly red currant aromas also displays plenty of earth character that continues onto the equally restrained middle weight flavors. There is good delineation and punch though the somewhat dry finish suggests that this would benefit from being paired with the appropriate food. Score: 86 Points; Drink: 2016+ Issue: 54 Burghound
