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 is perhaps the freshest wine in the range and the least marked by the high ripeness of the vintage with its wonderfully pure nose of citrus elements that combine with floral and green apple scents. There is fine intensity to the muscular, dense and powerful broad-shouldered flavors that even manage to display a certain refinement on the sleek, dry and wonderfully long finish. Good stuff and while I wouldn't describe this as classic in style, it still offers much to like; Comments: Sweet Spot; Rating: 93 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
