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.
The 2017 Corton Grand Cru exhibits aromas of red berries, dark chocolate and a subtle framing of cedary new wood, followed by a medium to full-bodied, broad-shouldered palate, with a reserved core of fruit, fine but abundant structuring tannins and ripe balancing acids. This is one of Bouchard's 2017s that will need a bit of time. Tasted: April 19; Drink: 2022-2040; Rating: 89+ Points; William Kelley; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
