Bouchard Père & Fils | Burgundy, France

Premier Cru Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Cailles Domaine 2014

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.

Wine Spectator

A solid version, dense and saturated with black cherry, blackberry and earth flavors. Iron and stone elements work their way in.

Wine Spectator

This solid, balanced red has a hefty profile shouldering cherry, currant and earth flavors, with tannins that are elevated by crisp acidity. Iron and tea accents play out on the long finish.

Premier Cru Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Lavières Domaine 2014

June 2016

90-92

(from a parcel purchased in 1909; ~30% whole clusters). This too possesses enough wood and menthol to fight a bit with the more elegant and equally ripe dark berry liqueur, earth and cassis aromas. The opulent, round and very suave middle weight flavors possess both good volume and solid mid-palate density before culminating in a relatively refined if slightly austere finish that offers very good depth as well as fine length. This is also going to require at least moderate patience. (90-92)/2022+

Premier Cru Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Lavières Domaine 2014

Wine Spectator

Macerated cherry, raspberry, wild herb and earth notes are matched by a supple texture, lively acidity and a dense matrix of tannins. All the components are here, but this will need a few years to knit together. Shows fine balance and intensity.

Premier Cru Vaillons Domaine 2017

August 2019

Wine Spectator

Round, with peach, apple and lemon flavors. Vibrant acidity keeps this focused and drives the lingering finish.

Premier Cru Volnay Clos des Chênes 2015

January 2017

90-93

Vinous

Bright red with ruby tones. Superripe yet fresh aromas of dark cherry, strawberry jam and dark chocolate. Fat, plush and very concentrated; very ripe and chocolatey in the mid-palate but not a sweet style. With its huge, dusty tannins and saline minerality, this very dense, long Volnay will need time in the cellar to find its ultimate harmony.

Premier Cru Volnay Les Caillerets Ancienne Cuvée Carnot 2016

April 2019

94 Points

Wine Spectator

A tightly wound style, featuring black cherry, blackberry, mineral and spice flavors fused to a solid spine of acidity and tannins. Dense and long, with vivid acidity focusing the lingering aftertaste.
