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’.
Very generous wood and menthol influence fights with the otherwise elegant aromas of red and dark cherry where additional breadth is present in the form of spice and earth. The dense yet attractively refined flavors possess a lovely, even caressing mouth feel before offering outstanding depth and length. Note that my predicted range assumes that the wood treatment will eventually be integrated as it is borderline heavy-handed today.
