Bouchard Père & Fils | Burgundy, France

Premier Cru Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Cailles Domaine 2013

August 2016

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.

There is slightly better freshness on the palate thanks to the evident minerality on adds a touch of lift to the mildly woody finish where the supporting tannins are firm but not hard.

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 Advocate

The 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Cailles is very promising, mingling aromas of sweet berries and plums with hints of raw cocoa and loamy soil. medium to full-bodied, layered and enveloping, it's bright and fleshy, with an elegant, charming profile that belies its depth and concentration.

Inside Burgundy

Rich intense black purple. There is a huge density of fruit and flavour but the tannins are firm and a little dry. This may well come more into balance after the racking.

Wine Advocate

Attractive aromas of raspberries and cherries mingling with nuances of blood orange, grilled squab and dark chocolate introduce the 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Cailles, a wine that’s showing substantially better than it did from barrel in December. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, showing good depth and dimension at the core, fine but chalky structuring tannins and good length on the finish.

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.

Decanter

Bouchard has one hectare of vines in premier cru Les Cailles, very close to Les St-Georges. The stone soils at the top of the slope and the small combe combine to produce a wine with silky, fragrant aromatics and an almost savoury note on top of the lovely, ripe cherry fruit and floral notes. Aged in 30% new wood, Frédéric's team is also experimenting with fermentation in glass carboys. Delicious and slightly exotic.
