Bouchard Père & Fils | Burgundy, France

Bonnes Mares 2017

April 2019

92-94 Points

Burghound.com

A generous application of wood and menthol can be found on the dark pinot fruit, spice, floral and newly turned earth aromas. The rich and muscular if rather supple big-bodied flavors possess a caressing mouth feel, indeed even velvety, before culminating in an impressively persistent finish where the only nit is a touch of warmth.

Ripe fruit flavors of peach and melon are framed by vanilla and buttery pastry notes in this white, which shows fine balance. A floral hint emerges as this winds down on the lingering finish.

An alluring red, elegant and pure, delivering cherry, strawberry and smoky mineral aromas and flavors. Turns a bit leaner on the finish, yet stays long, with a hint of spice.

Smoky cherry, spice and fresh earth flavors mark this fruity, harmonious red. The silky texture, fine balance and nice length make this very enjoyable now.

View From the Cellar

The 2008 Henriot Brut Millésime is composed of its traditional cépages of fifty percent chardonnay and fifty percent pinot noir. It was aged eight years sur latte and finished with a dosage of six grams per liter. The wine is beautifully pure on the nose in the style of this lovely vintage, wafting from the glass in a blend of pear, delicious apple, brioche, a touch of almond pastry dough, lovely, chalky soil tones and a bit of orange zest in the upper register.

Brut Millésime 2008

There is ample petrol character to the cool, pure and beautifully fresh nose that combines notes of citrus and yeast with those of green apple and a whiff of pain grillé. I really like the sense of tension and energy to the intense, delineated and solidly complex flavors that are supported by a firm and reasonably fine effervescence before culminating in a very dry, highly complex and superbly persistent finish. The outstanding 2008 vintage in Champagne can count another winner as this is a wine to buy and age in quantity.

An elegant version, featuring expressive ripe white peach and strawberry fruit flavors, layered with biscuit, kumquat, smoky mineral and ground ginger notes. Finely knit and creamy in texture, with vibrant acidity driving the racy finish. -- Alison Napjus

Decanter

An undramatic, cloud-filled season came right in a late harvest in October. A textbook cool vintage of great ageing potential. The perfect 50/50 balance of mineral-stamped Chardonnay and powerful, masculine Pinot makes this a champagne for patient drinkers, as it will take time to reach its peak. Vibrant acidity is joined by notes of white flowers and that magnificent mineral structure. -- Michael Edwards
