Bouchard Père & Fils | Burgundy, France

Premier Cru Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Cailles Domaine

April 2017

90

Wine Spectator

This has a high-toned edge to the currant, wild cherry and underbrush notes. Firm tannins exacerbate the austerity as this finishes with a dusty, chalky feel. Offers pretty fruit, so be patient.

Premier Cru Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Cailles Domaine

August 2016

93

Wine Spectator

A pretty red, with effusive aromas and flavors of violet, black currant, black cherry, stone and spice. Shows harmony and elegance, with a serious structure underneath. The finish is long, echoing dark fruit, mineral and spice details.

Premier Cru Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Cailles Domaine

January 2017

92-94

Vinous

Medium red-ruby. High-pitched aromas of blackberry, licorice and crushed rock. Compellingly sweet and fine-grained but with penetrating rocky minerality to its crunchy dark berry flavors. Reminded me of biting into a blueberry tart! The smooth but firm, slowly building finish displays outstanding purity and juiciness. This beauty has the sheer density of material to make its tannins virtually disappear. But I would still want to cellar this premier cru for at least a five or six years.

Premier Cru Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Cailles Domaine

January 2015

89-91

Vinous

Bright, dark ruby-red. High-toned, slightly liqueur-like aromas of dark fruits and chocolate mint. Very rich, sweet and chocolatey, with rather exotic flavors of black fruits and cherry pit. Nicely concentrated wine but I wondered about its high-toned character. I'd like to see this one in finished form next year.

Wine Spectator

This is pure, with delicate cherry, raspberry, rose, graphite and stone flavors, aligned with a firm, well-integrated matrix of tannins. Persists on the lingering aftertaste. Elegant and sophisticated.
