The Bouchard Père & Fils Estate holds some of the finest plots in the most prestigious Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune vineyards with more than two-thirds planted in Grands Crus and Premiers Crus appellations.
Located above Puligny and Chassagne, Le Montrachet benefits from a great exposure and is considered to be the world’s best for Chardonnay. The wines are rich and structured with perfect harmony between power, smoothness and delicacy and have very good ageing potential.
The wood this displayed in its youth has now been almost completely absorbed with still primary and clearly ripe yet fresh white flower and peach, pear and apricot aromas preceding big-bodied flavors that are delicious, thick, opulent and possess very good finishing intensity and persistence on the palate staining finish. For my taste, this has arrived at its peak though it should hold at this level for many years to come....- 91 pts Allen Meadows - Burghound
