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’.
This possesses one of the most complex noses in the range and features a panoply of spice elements along with exceptionally fresh and dense black fruit, violet and plum aromas which are trimmed in generous oak and menthol notes. There is excellent power to the focused, intense and attractively vibrant flavors that have a firm yet silky mouth feel before terminating in an explosively if ever-so-slightly warm finish. This stony built-to-age beauty is quite firmly structured but not forbidding as it's not particularly austere. Score: 93-96 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
