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 elements aren't fully integrated with the very ripe black cherry and raspberry liqueur-like aromas that flash soft spice and floral nuances. There is a strikingly lovely mouth feel to the intense mineral-driven and despite the excellent richness, first-rate delineation to the more powerful if perhaps slightly less refined finish this is linear, serious and gorgeously long. A knock-out. Tasted: Apr 2018; Drink: 2031+; Issue: 70; Comments: Don't miss! Outstanding; Rating 92-95 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
