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’.
Somewhat surprisingly this is even more aromatically elegant than the Caillerets with its cool and restrained nose equally perfumed and ultra-pure essence of red pinot fruit and plenty of mineral nuances. There is really lovely focus and detail to the vibrant medium-bodied flavors that exude a fine minerality on the delicious, balanced and exceptionally persistent finish. This isn't quite as structured or dramatic as the Caillerets, but it's just as good. Rating 90-93 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
