About This Wine...
Since its foundations in 1731, Bouchard Père et Fils has put together an exceptional vineyard holding along the Côte d’Or.
The fact that the firm owns land in some of the most prestigious of Burgundy’s terroirs, makes its objectives an obligation: constant progress towards perfection. A ‘great wine’ demands time and utmost care at every step in its production. This is why the firm calls upon the most suitable equipment (such as the new winery, inaugurated in 2005) and a team that shares the highest standards in terms of craftsmanship and creativity.
Awards & Reviews
- 2011 Vintage 88 pts Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, September 2013
- 2011 Vintage 88 pts Allen Meadows’ Burghound, Autumn 2013
- 2012 Vintage 89 pts Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, September 2013 – ‘Good, pale yellow. Aromas of apple, underripe pineapple and flowers. Deeper and more intense than the basic village cuvee, showing a saline quality and good natural acidity to the flavours of yellow fruits, spices, and flowers. Good firm minerality on the finish.’
- 2012 Vintage 88 pts Allen Meadows’ Burghound, Autumn 2014 – ‘deft touch of wood sets of markedly riper aromas of dried yellow fruit and hazelnut nuances that flirt with the exotic. There is good richness but also plenty of punch to the medium-bodied flavours that exude a discreet minerality onto the saline and moderately dry finish. This should be approachable young, but reward 4 to 6 years cellaring time too.’
- 2012 Vintage 88 pts Wine Spectator, September 2014. ‘Rich and almous viscous in texture, offering lime, floral, butterscotch and mineral flavours.’
