Bouchard Père & Fils | Burgundy, France

Premier Cru Meursault Genevrières 2015

September 2016

89-91

Vinous

Apple, spices and subtle smoky oak on the nose. Round, ripe flavors of peach and pear are lifted by a note of lime blossom. Good energy here from the higher-altitude parcel on chalkier soil. This wine normally shows more minerality with bottle aging, notes Weber, but it's already suave and fine-grained, with good inner-mouth lift. Among the higher-acid 2015 whites here, at 4.2 grams per liter.

Premier Cru Meursault Perrières 2014

September 2016

91+

Vinous

Bright, light yellow. Deeply pitched nose offers fresh apricot, iodiney minerality and a complicating leesy nuance. A broad, fat, mineral bath on the palate, with its ripe, sweet peach flavor nicely countered by firm acidity. Less harmonious and smooth than the Genevrières today, this wine needs time to meld its sweet fruit elements and acidity. But the long, rising finish augurs well for longevity.

Premier Cru Meursault Perrières 2015

September 2016

89-92

Vinous

The rockiest nose so far of these 2015s, with complicating notes of citrus zest, pineapple and lime blossom. Fine-grained, nicely delineated and adamantly dry; a mineral bath in the mouth, with a repeating note of pineapple. Finishes with good tactile, dusty length and slightly elevated alcohol. These Meursault premier crus produced a maximum of 32 hectoliters per hectare in 2015, according to Weber.

A briny, minerally note signals the aroma of this white, featuring lemon, apple and mineral flavors. Steely and intense, with a lingering finish. Elegant overall.

Premier Cru Montmains Domaine 2017

August 2019

90 Points

Wine Spectator

Though rich in texture, this white is concentrated and expressive, displaying apple, lemon and mineral flavors, defined by bracing acidity and tailing off on the finish.

Premier Cru Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Cailles Domaine 2015

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 2013

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 2015

November 2017

95

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.
