Bouchard Père & Fils | Burgundy, France
Premier Cru Beaune Clos Saint-Landry
Straw-yellow. Subtle perfume of citrus peel and white peach lifted by almond flower and nutmeg. Silky-smooth and rich verging on opulent, delivering serious concentration as a result of the tiny crop load. Plump and sweet but with adequate shaping acidity. A mouth filling wine with restrained sweetness, sneaky length and plenty of immediate appeal. But there's underlying minerality here as well.
